Camp school

Peace, quiet and wilderness in the countryside
45 beds

Are you looking for camp school locations? The Riiho Guest House offers camp schools a peaceful setting and an inspiring environment to focus on learning and activities. Our camp school programme has been designed in cooperation with experienced primary school teachers who are familiar with both classroom and camp school settings. Our packages have been designed for easy purchasing: although as comprehensive as possible, their content can be adjusted. The days consist of modules that are easily transferred between days.

In our rural setting, exercise and being outdoors are integral parts of the camp school programme. You can also visit a dairy farm to learn about milk production and a farm museum that exhibits and demonstrates a more than century-old way of living and working.

You can find our initial per-pupil price in the Programme link (the final price will be based on our quote).

We are a member of the Finnish Camp School Association.

Himmaanmäki observation tower

The Himmaanmäki observation tower is a popular destination. On the way to the tower, you will learn a great deal about traditional Finnish coniferous and mixed forests and their animals and vegetation. The tower is around 2.5 km from the Riiho Guest House.
