WHAT IS OUTDOOR LEARNING

Learning outside the classroom has many educational benefits which include inspiring individuals in their learning and developing the whole child.  Our outdoor education programmes provide an exciting new platform for learning and offers experiences which cannot be reproduced indoors. Young people are given first hand experiences which they may not be able to discover in a classroom.

Our Programmes

Designed to provide children and young people with experiences that equip them with skills for life and are designed around 4 themes:
