  • "I have been to many activity centres in the UK during my career and Outdoor Adventure has been the best by far. The staff, food, accommodation and activities were outstanding. " Lisa Boag

    St Chadds School, Essex

  • "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." M.S Ridley

    Beechwood Park School

  • "Your staff were friendly, welcoming, confidence-inspiring, knowledgeable and keen to ensure that all involved both enjoyed the activities and learnt something from them. There was an excellent balance on all activities between fun and education and a reassuring emphasis on safety. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending OA for a challenging and enjoyable educational experience." Bruce Paton

Activity weeks also prove invaluable as a teambuilding experience. Trust and team spirit are built throughout the week developing and improving relationships between each other and teachers.

The activities take place in spectacular unspoilt locations where students get a real experience and lasting impression of the sport. An evening programme is included to ensure that the pupils can make the most of their time with us and there is not an excess of free time.
