Our Safety Standards

Centre approval

The centre fulfils all County Council Health and Safety requirements and is licensed by AALA (Adventurous Activities Licensing Authority). In addition we chose also to become approved by the major sport governing bodies,

  • The BCU (British Canoe Union),
  • SurfGB (Surfing Great Britain),
  • RYA (Royal Yachting Association),
  • NCC (National Coasteering Charter).

Quality assurance

Outdoor Adventure has always been totally customer focused and operates a quality assurance system that works. Our staff are always around asking you how things are going and we make sure we gain your open and honest feedback at the end of your week. Your ideas and suggestions prove invaluable to us and most of the centre improvements and innovations to our holidays have come directly from you!

Secure Centre policy and child protection

Our staff team are fully vetted, DBS checked and trained in child protection. A duty instructor fully qualified in first aid, remains on-site and on call throughout the night period.

Our commitment to the environment

Outdoor Adventure is environmentally aware and pro-active. We are a provider of the John Muir Environmental Award and are on our way to becoming an Eco Centre. We work closely with English Nature, The National Trust, The Heritage Coast, The Forestry Commission and The Marine Conservation Society.

Our team pass on our knowledge of the environment to our customers with the John Muir philosophy for wild places: “Discover Explore, Conserve and Share.” We regularly monitor all of our activity locations to ensure our usage is not having any negative impact and by taking this approach, we can enjoy these amazing places with our guests without spoiling them for others. For the benefit of everyone, it is important that everything we do is sustainable.
