Limitations on young people, whether real or perceived, come in all shapes and sizes. But we use the power of learning and adventures in the wild to defeat them all.
We partner with secondary schools and colleges to teach young people the most important lesson they could ever learn: to believe in themselves.
It’s the superpower that transforms their behaviour throughout school, work and beyond.
Learning about yourself happens best out in the wild. We take young people away from the everyday life into our world, to give them life-changing experiences they won’t get from home or inside the classroom.
Our tailored outdoor learning courses deliver an alternative education, giving young people the confidence to tackle the real world head on.
No two courses are the same. Your programme is made to order depending on your learning needs.
A super-skilled, dedicated instructor for each group, for the entire course.
Hugely impactful and memorable experiences like no other, including carefully planned wild overnight expeditions.
All-inclusive, so all food, accommodation, tuition, 24-hour pastoral care and comprehensive insurance are included.
Prices for up to 12 students and one free member of staff start at £1,734 for a three-day residential, or at £2,592 for five-days.
We use the natural environment to stretch your students over three or five days. Challenges include gorge walking, rock climbing, cutter sailing and canoeing. All are fun, adventurous and help to embed learning.
Each of our five residentials centres are set in truly jaw-dropping spots. Because of their lakeside views or closeness to the UK’s tallest peaks, they will make you feel like you’re a million miles away from civilisation.
As a charity we’re not focussed on profit or shareholders. We just care about young people. And thanks to our donors and supporters, we can give funding to the schools who really need it to put towards the cost of their course.
