Mersea Outdoors is set in approximately 62 acres of well-maintained fields. We can accommodate up to 350 visitors in tents, and have cabin accommodation for up to 104 people (you do need to provide your own bedding!). Facilities include toilets, shower rooms, laundry room, dining rooms, a main hall equipped with music and a big screen video.
Outdoor activities available include assault course, caving, bridge building, high ropes course, climbing, team challenges, aerial runway and access to the beach for water sports. In all we offer more than 20 activities, all run by qualified instructors. We also have access to a canoe base and field study centre situated on an island in the creek off West Mersea. This island can only be reached by boat. The Colchester area lends itself to many day visits, from farm visits to Colchester Museum, the Zoo and Constable Country.
You can use the site for basic camping, bringing your own gear, or we can supply everything from tents and mattresses to full catering needs and a fully planned programme.
