Pelistry Camp Isles of Scilly
Pelistry is one of only a few places that you can camp on St. Mary’s. The camp has three tented villages offering both a sea view and an island view. All sleeping tents have floorboards and mattresses. Each village has two marquees, wash tents and flushing toilets.
There are a range of outdoor studies possible using the unique resources the island provides.
We like to offer the children at Weeth the chance to visit a city and Bristol is the perfect location for this. During the trip to Bristol, children stay in a hostel and complete a range of exciting activities during their stay. This may include; looking at the Bristol street art including the works of Banksy (who children study in Year 6), having an educational tour of the harbour, visiting Bristol Zoo, a trip to the science museum and the planetarium.
