Outdoor education unlocks potential. Young people are capable of more than you expect.

The power in young people is immense. Barriers to development and learning are unlocked through powerful, immersive outdoor experiences in the natural environment.

By unlocking potential, young people realise that; They are capable of far more than they realise.

Inspiring outdoor activities in the Lake District, one of the UK’s best adventure playgrounds.

Young people learn most effectively when activities are both enjoyable and challenging. Our programmes are based on the experiential learning process using a range of outdoor activities set in the inspirational landscape of the Lake District.

We use real, adventurous activities and carefully balance the risks and benefits to provide powerful learning experiences that:

  • Raising self esteem and personal confidence
  • Promoting teamwork through the outdoor experience
  • Developing a love and understanding of the outdoors
  • Promoting tolerance, respect and co-operative attitudes

“Education in its broadest sense is not just about delivering a curriculum. It is about giving children the chance to extend their life skills. It is about developing their confidence. It is about fostering their resilience and sense of responsibility. And – let us not forget – it is about the enjoyment, engagement and excitement of venturing out into the real world, with all its capacity for uncertainty, surprise, stimulation and delight”.

Your Adventure Experience

Our instructors are expert outdoor educators. They have the skills, maturity and experience to both support and challenge young people, whether in social time or up a mountain. In addition to undertaking exciting and challenging activities, we believe in immersing young people as deeply as possible in the natural environment.

Whilst the immediate goal is for participants to become more effective in their learning, we believe the skills developed during our programmes have a long lasting effect and can make changes for life.

The Personal Approach 

We are proud of the personal and flexible approach we have with all of our clients. We work with you to design a programme of activities that suits every young person.
