NATURE EXPERIENCE FOR Schools
We offer a range of outdoor days for schools. From pure adventure and leadership experiences to those focused more on mindfulness and creativity.
I believe spending time outside improves our health, creativity and overall well-being. And these studies found that to be the case too. I also believe this is something lacking a lot of schools and we want to change that.
Having worked in the outdoor education industry for many years we have seen how much time outside changes young people. Students who struggle with the classroom setting suddenly become focused and interested. Phones are switched off and students start interacting with each other the old fashioned way. They start to enjoy the lack of distractions.
This can come in many forms. It could be a fun, challenging hike, or a mindful one, a sea kayak or maybe a paddle board. We have a list of options to work for your students and their abilities and comfort levels.
The team is made up of many years working with at risk youth in the back country of Canada and the UK. We have wilderness first aid training, in depth knowledge of health and safety as part of the school boards and years of facilitating outdoor programming for young people to keep them engaged and challenged.
