Learning Outcomes

Decision making

Having the ability to make the right decision under pressure is an important life skill. Many of our adventure activities involve working as a team and making collective decisions to impact the outcome of a task. Groups review what went well or what they may need to work on.

Trust

Trust building activities help teams develop a level of understanding about their fellow group members and builds confidence in individuals as they learn to trust one another throughout their tasks.

Physical, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

Preparing young people for adulthood. Many areas of PSHE such as citizenship, health and wellbeing and communication are widely explored in many of our adventure activities. Activities can be tailored to include areas such as trust, listening skills, relationships, democracy, justice, diversity and our environment; whatever your curriculum objectives.

Team building

We have a range of instructed activities that are designed to get groups working together through challenging team dynamics, they will have to work together to achieve certain tasks and challenges, developing listening skills, communication and trust within the group. They get a better understanding of their colleagues or classmates which aids development.

Self-confidence

Children and young people really come on in leaps and bounds on our residentials. Being away from home in a different environment, having to rely on their peers, trying new activities and finding their place within their group, gives a real boost to their confidence. They find skills they didn’t know they had.

Concentration

Managing behaviour through outdoor activities. Getting active outdoors, running around and trying new activities not only helps let off steam, it can also aid concentration when back in the classroom or workplace.

Dexterity/control and balance

We have lots of open spaces and self-led activities that are great for developing dexterity, control and balance. We have poles to walk and balance on, sports pitches and fields to run around on and a range of instructed activities that are good for balance and hand eye co-ordination.

Communication & Listening Skills

Being able to hear something, process it and formulate a favourable response in a short space of time. We’ve developed a range of activities where groups have to learn to communicate and listen to one another to ensure tasks can be completed successfully.

Physical education

Outdoor adventure activities help to build fitness and promote physical wellbeing. They also help with concentration, improve teamwork and communication skills. Many activities allow for personal development too, helping children and young people realise their potential and building confidence. Getting active in the outdoors helps improve motivation and self-esteem.
