Woodlarks Campsite is a campsite run by volunteers to provide holidays for people with disabilities. 

Our Santa's Grotto is run purely for children with a very wide range of additional needs from specialist schools or childrens hospices who might benefit from the high level of sensory interaction.

The Grotto is assembled and run entirely by a group of friends who are exceptionally enthusiastic and freely give up an enormous amount of time to make this event something very special. Our friends volunteer for all of the work as well as trying to raise the necessary funds needed to make this a truly magical festive event. We hope that the grotto and all of the interactive areas, as well as the decorations, lights, snow machines and everything else that is put together will give as much fun as possible during their visit here. We provide a present up to the value of £15 per child with this present being of their choice. We cover all costs and there is no charge of any sort to any of Santa's guests.

Some of the children who attend have sensory issues and cannot visit a grotto on the high street as they would be overwhelmed by noise and being surrounded by too many people. Here at the Grotto we can cater for this, working with staff and parents to ensure there are not too many people around and noise is to a minimum.  Each child will go through the woodland winter wonderland before visiting Santa in an appropriate, festive and welcoming environment with carers who know them, understand their needs and make sure their visit is rewarding, fun and safe.

The event is for groups who will have used the camp site or who may benefit from the sites facilities in future and is by invite only.

Last year we had 181 very excited guests plus their staff visit Santa.
