Outdoor learning centres
Outdoor learning service - motivational learning in inspirational environments. North Yorkshire County Council's 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 aim to provide inspiring outdoor learning that helps every child and young person we work with become a successful learner, confident individual and a responsible citizen.
We provide challenge, adventure and education based activities, helping learners develop personal and outdoor skills, value and respect others and appreciate the natural world. In addition to this we provide adult interest and leader training courses for adults and group leaders. Our centres are accredited or affiliated with the following national organisations:
We have two centres in North Yorkshire, namely:
Bewerley Park Centre - located just outside the Yorkshire Dales town of Pateley Bridge, near Harrogate.
East Barnby Centre - located high on the rolling coastal plateau between the North York Moors and the North Sea, about five miles outside Whitby.
More information about the activities available can be obtained by phoning or emailing the individual centres or by visiting the Outdoor Education Service website.
