Some of our centres offer adventure activities for primary school day visits. The activities available vary by location, as well as time of year- but may include orienteering, problem solving activities, bushcraft, canoeing, rafting, ghyll scrambling, hiking, ropes course, rock climbing, coasteering. 

These activities offer the opportunity for fun and learning in an out-of-classroom setting, where pupils will develop their teamwork skills such as communication, problem solving, listening, collaboration and leadership. By challenging themselves to work together to achieve these activities, students develop self-awareness, confidence and self-esteem.

Learning in a natural environment permits students to develop an appreciation and respect for nature and living things, as well as an understanding of how we can look after our environment.
