Outdoor learning

All activities delivered at Whitlingham Adventure comply with the relevant National Governing Body (NGB) and with the Adventurous Activity Licensing authority (AALA).

Water and land based activities

School Groups

Working in partnership with schools we create bespoke educational programmes with a range of practical, adventurous activities on either water or land.  We provide school groups with an introduction to outdoor pursuits showing the young people the benefits of getting active, sharing and adventure and enjoying the great outdoors.

Cross curricular activities are available that combine a variety of environments and learning activities, and enhance the curriculum in areas such as geography, science and maths.  We aim to make learning more engaging and relevant to nurture creativity and imagination.

Young people are encouraged to take responsibility, develop self-awareness and help each other, while learning new skills.

Research shows that learning outside the classroom can improve attendance, reduce behaviour problems, keep healthy, improve well-being, develop interest in the environment and wider surrounding, build resilience and promote independent thinking.
