School Trips & Educational Programmes


There are so many benefits to including outdoor activities as part of educational school 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 and Hampshire County Council. 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.

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.

Activity residential trips are extremely beneficial and aid in boosting a child’s confidence, physical health, learning, appreciation for the environment and ability to work as part of a team. Our School Group Coordinators will help you build the ideal residential package to suit your group size, age range, and preferred educational outcomes.
