It’s National Storytelling Week and in celebration we’re encouraging the next generation of writers to tell us about their most exciting outdoor adventure. The prize for the most creative writer includes either a FREE trip with Kingswood Camps for our winner and their friend, OR a FREE day trip for the whole school class at one of our UK outdoor education centres! Our exciting creative writing competition is aimed at 8 to 16 year olds. It’s a great way of getting young people involved in creative writing with amazing prizes to be won. 

We are looking for the best adventure story of under 500 words which best describes their ‘Favourite Outdoor Adventure Experience’. Encourage your students or child to recall a particularly exciting adventure holiday, or an experience they’ve had on a weekend…whatever the adventure, we want to know about it!
