Save the Date! 21st June 2019 for…. Ditcham After Dark Campover!!!


We are excited to announce that the date of the 2019 Family Campover has been (most appropriately!) set for the longest day of 2019!

Mark your diaries for 21st June 2019!

What is it? New in 2015 was the "Ditcham After Dark" family campout event.  With the kind agreement of the School, FDPS invited families to pitch a tent in the Walled Garden overnight and experience the grounds as never before! For our first year 50 tents were pitched, and the families enjoyed al fresco food, fun and games, a warming camp fire (with marshmallows for toasting) and an interesting "Bat Walk"! Read more about the 2015 event here.

More details for our 2019 event to follow soon - we can't wait!
