Frank Chapman Centre


Our approach is simple - “What do you want your group to achieve?”

Description

Proudly part of Sandwell Council, the Frank Chapman Centre is set in 90 acres of beautiful ancient oak forest, creating an adventurous setting for exploring and learning in the outdoors.

The centre was purpose-built to provide high quality residential visits and in recent years has seen investment in a climbing wall, high ropes and a fabulous glamping village.

We provide a unique range of residential and day visit learning experiences for groups of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

Excellent Staff and a good week was had by all, with the activities they had arranged. (March 2020 - Secondary)




Staff were extremely helpful and accommodating for a range of needs. The centre was well run, all dietary requirements were dealt with and children had a range of things to choose from. (February 2020)

Fantastic (September 2019 - Primary)




From the day we booked with Debbie the organisation ran very smoothly. When we requested additional pre visits and advice on routes to walk the staff were very helpful. We camped and used the additional kitchen building to cook our own food, all equipment well maintained and everything you needed was there. We will be booking again but not sure whether on Frank Chapman field or on the excellent Cooper's Mill site a few miles away. (September 2019 - Primary & Secondary)
