Prepare your students for life's challenges
Let us bring the benefits of the natural world to your school with our incursions.
BRING EDUCATION TO LIFE
Changes in society are affecting childhood experiences. Opportunities for outdoor play and exploration are diminishing, contributing to more sedentary lifestyles, disconnected from the natural world. Learning in the outdoors increases student’s physical, mental and social health and overall.
Our incursions provide a space, in the outdoors, for your students to explore, apply and reflect upon new skills – skills like problem-solving, communication, and relationship building. In a fun and fully supported environment, your students connect with themselves, each other and the natural world.
LEARNING BY DOING
We know for young people, the best way to learn is to do. When accepting challenges in the outdoors through a set of considered activities, students problem-solve in a real, hands-on way.
Our incursions take learning beyond the classroom and inspire students through simple outdoor education experiences accessible for all. Themed incursions foster development in a range of personal and social skills that will serve your students well for life – wherever it may take them.Request a quote Enquire now
