Adventure Learning Programme
School Trips @ First Hand Experiences
A two day workshop to be used as part of your school’s enrichment programme or integrated into your curriculum.
We take your class to a nearby green space whether it be field, woodland, park or river side and with the help of our passionate, experienced facilitators children take part in outdoor activities that allow them to explore and connect with their environment.
Back at school the next day, inspired by their outdoor adventures, professional artists teach the children to knit, weave, mould, sculpt, carve, paint and build using natural materials. A snack is prepared by the children themselves guided by our facilitator using whole, natural ingredients that are tasty and often surprising. Each workshop culminates in a musical celebration of original song and performance games.
Our team of vibrant, inspirational mentors bring an unrivalled sense of joy and dedication to their role. As well as being experts in their field, all our team are equipped with outstanding communication skills, boundless energy, a full DBS and beaming smile!
