Learning Outcomes

Physical education

Outdoor adventure activities help to build fitness and promote physical well-being. 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.

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.

Physical, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

Preparing young people for adulthood. Many areas of PSHE such as citizenship, health and well-being 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.

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.

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.

Problem solving

Working out a strategy to achieve the best outcome or solution to a problem. These activities teach children and young people how to evaluate a situation or task, plan a strategy of execution and then execute that strategy. Strategic planning, execution and reviewing stops them becoming frustrated and giving up too quickly.

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.

Trust/Stronger relationships

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.

Managing risk/Developing resilience

The ability to bounce back and thrive after disappointment or unmet expectations. Through our activities, we give children and young people a chance to view setbacks as learning opportunities. Evaluating and planning helps a young person to think calmly and positively about a setback and helps build their confidence to try again.

Growth in aspirations

The opportunity to try new activities can help develop and grow aspirations. Getting everyone down the abseil tower or through the high ropes course puts the whole group on the same level of achievement. This helps young people realise their potential, sometimes for the very first time.
