Outdoor learning centres

Our outdoor learning service is dedicated to developing outdoor learning for all children and young people, together with training courses for adults and youth leaders.

We provide challenge, adventure and educational activities for a wide range of groups and students at two centres. Activities include:

  • Courses for primary, secondary or higher education, including outdoor and adventurous activities, environmental studies, GCSE or A Level fieldwork.
  • An outreach service to take activities to your base, or another venue. Almost all activities available at the Centres are also available through the outreach service.
  • Day use of the centres, allowing you to focus on a specific activity while making use of our facilities and expert teaching staff.
  • Weekends and school holidays are available for any group, allowing a catered residential-only or full or part-taught course.
  • GNVQ leadership and team building courses.
  • Specialist courses and nationally recognised qualifications in a wide range of outdoor activities.
  • Special needs groups - we have experience in designing courses for groups with specific physical and educational needs.

We also pride ourselves on our ability to adapt to any situation, so please contact us to discuss your requirements.

What we offer for adults

We are affiliated to or approved by many outdoor and adventurous activities organisations. These include the Royal Yachting Association for sailing, windsurfing and powerboating, the British Canoe Union, the British Orienteering Federation, the Mountain Leader Training Board, the Mountain Bike Instructor Award Scheme, the British Caving Association and Rescue and Emergency Care for first aid training.

We offer a range of services and can tailor courses to clients' needs. These can be based on a residential or non-residential basis, over any period of time and in a variety of locations. Most courses include full board and lodgings in addition to tuition, loan of specialist equipment and transport while at the centre.
