Action Adventure package

Adrenaline-fuelled activities in the great outdoors

Our Action Adventure packages are designed to make the most of the natural world around us and as a result they really take the challenges up a level.

Forget simulated experiences indoors and instead engage your pupils with exhilarating activities and extraordinary learning opportunities in the great outdoors. See the difference a genuine experience makes as your group tackles the thrills of natural rock surfaces or manmade structures including bridges and viaducts, breathe in fresh country air as they prepare to take a leap of faith, or paddle down the river as the cool water slaps against the side of their canoe.

Teamwork is key as the adventure begins. Pupils are encouraged to step out of their comfort zone to try different things and take on new challenges. With the support of our experienced staff pupils will take on a wide range of activities, each one designed to improve their skills, strengthen friendships and help them grow in confidence.
