Outdoor residential trips they’ll remember for all the right reasons

With the core theme of ‘Explore & Inspire’ running through the heart of our multi-activity residential trips, our action-packed itineraries suit a variety of interests and abilities for Year 3 upwards.

Our focus is on providing rich and varied learning in the great outdoors whilst helping young people to build confidence and make wonderful memories, whether it’s trying a new activity or rounding off the day by toasting marshmallows around a roaring campfire.

Inspiring the explorers of tomorrow to seek out a lifetime of adventure:

  • Suitable for Year 3 upwards
  • Three- and five-day programmes available
  • Based at our three outdoor centres in Staffordshire
