Discovery package

Fun, challenging and memorable experiences

Overview

Designed to enable teachers to create their own stay, our Discovery package offers a flexible programme of fun, challenging and memorable experiences that can be tailored to support the educational needs of your group.

For example, if you are looking to focus on communication, team challenges, shelter building and orienteering can be built into your programme. Alternatively, if you wanted to focus on personal achievement you may decide to include archery, fire lighting and a guided walk. With a range of activities spanning history, geography, literacy and PSHE, to name a few, we can support all your cross-curricular needs.

With such a wide range of flexible choices available at a great number of hostels, plus the option to extend your stay as you wish, this package offers great value whilst delivering activities that will feed your pupil’s sense of adventure and discovery.
