A minibus is part of daily life at The Mount Camphill Community and enables the young people to be transported to offsite activities that they choose to take part in, enhancing their timetable and lives. The current vehicle has reached the ripe old age of 20 and sadly, is no longer a reliable source of transport, it needs to be replaced!

Both students and cohousers take part in varied timetables here on campus and out in the local community. During the week attending swimming lessons, educational trips to various locations and ferrying to and from work experience placements all over East Sussex and Kent. Educational visits are part of the curriculum here and more frequent trips are made as part of our Life Skills for ingredients shopping. Trips to the coast, countryside parks and National Trust properties at weekends. Sailing lessons and horse-riding lessons for the cohousers during the week. An annual camping trip in the summer to the South Downs and a college biography retreat, when a minibus is a very necessary transport solution to take them, equipment and luggage.

The Mount strives to provide the fullest possible life for those who live and learn here. Core educational, housing and support costs are met through local authority funding. The personalised, enriched experience we hope to offer is possible through the funding received from voluntary donations and our fundraising activities.
