Adur Outdoor Activity Centre
The Adur centre opened in 2018 with the aim to provide outstanding outdoor activities and education to children and schools.
Situated on the banks of the River Adur and adjacent to the South Downs in Shoreham-by-sea, West Sussex; the Adur Centre is in an ideal location to deliver outdoor education to your school. The Adur residential programmes are designed to give students an insight into the joys of operating and learning in the outdoor environment whilst developing skills for life such as decision-making, resourcefulness, planning, team work and thinking outside of the classroom.
We work with schools to make sure it meets your learning objectives. We measure the success and impact through our evaluation procedure.
Our programmes offer a mixture of practical sessions mixed with group discussions and individual discovery time. We keep our team sizes to a minimum and therefore maximise the individual’s experience.
