School Trips, Youth Programmes & Residentials

There are so many benefits to including outdoor activities as part of educational school and youth trips. Getting them out in the fresh air and doing something active is fantastic for their health and wellbeing, they’ll learn new skills that cannot be taught in a classroom, and they’ll achieve things they never thought possible.

Our passion and years of experience organising school trips and youth group projects allows us to offer unique and fulfilling activities that will aid both their educational and personal development.

All of our activities are approved by AALA, Hampshire County Council and Learning Outside the Classroom. We can deliver standalone activities, day trips and multi activity packages that are designed to educate outside the classroom and inspire children to try more, do more and achieve more – regardless of academic or physical ability.

Day Trips

From primary schools to colleges, we’ve a range of activities available for all ages and abilities. Your school group will really benefit from new experiences with us, teaching them life skills and giving them a chance to feel a sense of achievement.

Our school trips can incorporate many outdoor activities including canoeing.

Single Activities

Choose from any of our activities for an enjoyable experience in the great outdoors. We can tailor our activities to provide fundamental educational benefits, or simply fill them with fun!

Our school trips can incorporate many outdoor activities including cycle orienteering.

Half & Full Day

Why not combine two or more of our activities for a half or full day of learning outside the classroom? Perhaps a morning of Canoeing on the Beaulieu River and an afternoon of Cycle Orienteering? All of course, promoting a sense of teamwork and problem solving.

Our Battlefield LIVE school trips are always popular.

Activity Weeks

We can provide you with multi day experiences, perfect for schools looking to fill their end of term activity weeks with fun. Or perhaps create instant bonds and familiarity between students who’ve just met.

Always well organised and fun, with great instructors. I took over my Summer school from a previous colleague and BattleZone is the only thing I have not changed as it is great, year after year.
