Tom Roberts Adventure Centre (TRAC) is a residential adventure centre based in the Gloucestershire countryside, near Newent.

Children will be sleeping in dormitories, on single beds or single bunk beds. Dorms are single sex and comprise of children of a similar age. We do our very best to accommodate friendship groups when allocating dorms.  Occasionally if there are too many friends for one dorm they will need to be divided into two dorms. Every dorm has its own allocated toilets and showers.

Each dorm is supervised by two adult leaders.  Dorm leaders will be sleeping in adjacent rooms to the dorms while other camp leaders will be in tents on the TRAC grounds, in leaders lodges or in spare dorms.  There will be designated staff toilets and showers.


Food at camp is second to none!  Our very experienced cooks provide three superb two course meals a day – breakfast, lunch and tea along with a light supper.

All kitchen workers have current food hygiene certification.

Any food allergies or special dietary requirements MUST be communicated via the consent forms and careful attention will be paid to this information.

There is also an evening singing session, which includes live music from the camp band, and a goodnight message from one of the leaders.

Occasionally we will take the evening singing session outside to the camp fire!
