Let us bring the exhilaration of the natural world to your school
Changes in society are affecting childhood experiences. Opportunities for outdoor play and exploration are diminishing, contributing to more sedentary lifestyles, disconnected from the natural world. Learning in the outdoors increases student’s physical, mental and social health and overall.
Our incursions provide a space, in the outdoors, for your students to explore, apply and reflect upon new skills - skills like problem-solving, communication, and relationship building. In a fun and fully supported environment, your students connect with themselves, each other and the natural world.
We know for young people, the best way to learn is to do. When accepting challenges in the outdoors through a set of considered activities, students problem-solve in a real, hands-on way.
Our incursions develop key themes with activities and simple outdoor education experiences at school. Take learning beyond the classroom and inspire the development of a range of skills and understandings that will serve your students well for life – wherever it may take them.
Suitable for students of all ages, our incursions utilise school grounds and create a fun and exciting space for students to explore challenges, develop resilience and learn new skills. Zero travel time means students get the most of their outdoor experience and have more time to enjoy the fresh air.
Select from a range of themes and outcomes to fit your desired learning outcomes. For example: build on your student's resilience, inspire leadership or focus on enhancing their connection to their environment.
You can also prepare your students for more adventures further afield when we include cooking on a trangier and erecting a tent.
