GROUP OR EDUCATIONAL VISITS

PLEASE NOTE: The Oasis Camel Park is situated in a remote area of Suffolk where the mobile phone signal is weak and as both of our card payment terminals are on this system we have had many issues with the processing of card payments. It is therefore advisable to bring cash to avoid any inconvenience as the nearest ATM is over 6 miles away.

A Great Day Out for groups of all ages!

The Camel Park is almost certainly the only place in Great Britain where you can touch and see the camel and their relatives close-up.The Camel Park Oasis offers a great value day out for school parties, playgroups, cubs or brownies and adult groups too. Evening visits can also be made by prior arrangement. For adults we can provide a variety of animal encounters to suit all age groups. Camel rides are especially great for team building (extra charge applies).

A group visit to the Camel Park Oasis includes the following...

For small children a supervised cuddle-a-pet session, play areas, mini-maze and land train ride are provided.

For adults and older children an introductory talk on the history and evolvement of the camelid species and a close-up session with one of our camels. For an extra charge camel rides can be arranged.

Hands on sessions for all with some of our smaller pets. All of our hands-on animal sessions are supervised by ourselves and we have to insist that everyone uses the handwashing facilities provided immediately after the sessions.

Farm walk for the whole family where you can see a host of interesting animals including camels, goats, donkeys, llamas, alpacas, chickens etc.

A visit to the information barn which contains lots of interesting facts about all of our animals.

For corporate groups we can arrange a Camel Safari which includes a buffet meal – great for team building. Please ring 07836 734747 for our special corporate group prices.

Admission Price for GROUP VISITS (Scouts, Brownies, Cubs etc or large families) is £7.00 per person for 12 or more paying people.

 

Educational visits to the Camel Park Oasis

An educational visit to the Camel Park Oasis is both informative and fun. The visit includes participation in a Cuddle-a-Pet session, a Land Train ride and free use of all our play areas, crazy golf and mini maze.

A school or educational visit can also include (free of charge) an interesting talk (20-30 minutes) on the Camel and its relations, covering biology, geography, history and evolution, with an explanation of the Camels use in farming around the world. This touches on the much talked about topic of camel milk and its medicinal qualities and generally making comparisons with other farm animal species.

Alternatively, on request, we are also able to offer a guided tour which is a walk around the park to meet a number of our other animals. On the walk your group will be accompanied by one of our Education Staff, who will introduce your party to a range of the parks inhabitants and ensure that you experience them in a very special way by telling you lots of interesting facts. We will also point out some of the native wildlife present on the park. The walk usually lasts around 30-40 minutes depending on interest. Animals encountered vary depending upon season and animal health and welfare, but may include meerkats, ring-tailed lemurs, donkeys, rheas/emus, wallabies, mara, birds, marmosets and of course the various members of the camel family. This guided walk should be requested upon booking your group/educational visit and is free of charge.

We fully understand that transport costs have escalated in the last few years so have introduced new lower admission charges for schools on a sliding scale depending on group sizes. We allow teachers and helpers free admission and a teacher is welcome to come free of charge to visit us to carry out a risk assessment prior to any school visit.We can provide a basic risk assessment on request. Coach drivers are admitted free of charge and provided with free drinks.
