Outdoor activity school residentials provide young people with unrivalled opportunities and educational experiences gained through adventure. We will help design a week that fits your group's goals, desires and aims.

Expanding comfort zones and building resilience: 

Outdoor adventure allows young people to expand their comfort zone, build resilience, and grow confidence.

Looking after their well-being and mental health: 

We care deeply about the well-being of all young people who come to visit us and promote a positive attitude towards mental health.

Developing environmental awareness: 
Spending time outdoors allows for a better understanding, knowledge and connection with nature.

Creating stronger relationships: 
Students build and develop better relationships and communities with their peers and their teachers.

Engaging with learning outside the classroom: 

Learning outside the classroom can assist in curriculum-focused activities, independent learning, team working, creativity and important life skills.

Let us organise it all: fully catered from your first evening meal to your last lunch. You'll have exclusive accommodation and activities every day. We'll design an action-packed school trip with a range of adventurous activities, focused on the values of outdoor, adventure and growth.
