Dates, Prices & Offers for Residential School Trips 2019/2020

When choosing the Activity Centre for your School Residential, price is always going to be a significant factor. Outdoor Adventure has done its utmost to keep prices as low as possible without compromising its ethos of delivering a quality experience. It is true however, that we cannot compete on price with the large centres who take hundreds of pupils at a time, but this price difference is an inevitable trade-off for coming to one of the few small and personal residential activity centres left in the UK.

2 Night Midweek Autumn Specials 2019 – A Perfect Time Of Year For Primaries

September and October is a fantastic period for a residential in Cornwall. People often people think the best of the year is over, but in actual fact the sea temperatures are still at their warmest (warmer than July!), the area is empty with quiet beaches to yourself, and the weather at this time of year is now proving to be better than the summer. We have mid-week specials on the weeks below:

Sep 9 – 11  Monday 1pm – Wednesday 1pm

Oct 14 – 16  Monday 1pm – Wednesday 1pm

Low Cost Spring/Pre-SATS Offers For 2020

For 2020 Outdoor Adventure are now offering Residentials in the early Spring weeks (prior to SATS) at a very reduced price. With the change in the seasonal weather now in the UK, the spring is now proving to be the new summer and is a fantastic time for a school trip.

This can also be a great time for years 3, 4 and 5 to go away, as well as schools who don’t follow the National Curriculum and therefore not effected by SATS.

Dates & Trip Duration to Suit Your Budget

At Outdoor Adventure we tailor all of our programmes to each particular school visiting. This does mean that to give you a price, we do need to know the type of programme you are looking for, approximate group size and in which month you would like to come.

We have lots of different options to offer your school, many of which suit different year groups by working around exam logistics. They also provide more choices for varying school budgets. Our weeks usually run from Monday lunchtime to Friday lunchtime and at weekends from Friday lunchtime to Sunday/Monday lunchtime.

Your group should be able to reclaim the VAT. Our prices include all meals, accommodation, equipment, instruction, transport to the activity locations and a full day and evening programme. We also offer a free staff place per 10 students.

Short Stay 1 or 2 Night Residential Trips

Very often primary schools, particularly the younger year groups, look for a short trip duration perhaps even only 1 night away.

This is usually to take into consideration the risk of the children becoming homesick and also that parents of this age range are often concerned about their child being away from home.

We provide these shorter residential activity trips at budget prices:

1 night – £94 + vat per pupil

2 nights – £137 + vat per pupil

  • "The instructors’ understanding of the children was exemplary and they pitched the instruction level perfectly. The target setting and reinforcement at the beginning and end of each activity left the children in no doubt what they had achieved. In short, we achieved so much more than we have at other Centres."
