Essex Outdoors prides itself on making sure that all its school groups have amazing experiences and develop life-long memories whilst staying at its centres.
The team at Essex Outdoors work with schools to generate a bespoke programme that ensures that they have the accommodation and activities that get the most from their pupils.
What does it offer schools?
Whether you’re looking for an action-packed week on the waves at the Bradwell Centre, reaching new heights on the gravity swing at Mersea, or getting adventurous in the ancient woodland at Danbury, Essex Outdoors can cater for your needs.
And if you only have a day to spend at one of their centres, why not think about Essex Outdoors Harlow, where you can try the fun-packed multi activity days and have a go at canoeing, climbing, paddleboarding and more?
“A highly inclusive Centre with friendly and helpful staff.”
Teacher, Westfield Community Primary School.
Young people who participate in a residential trip to one of Essex Outdoors’ centres not only have a good time, but also develop a range of skills that they can carry with them for the rest of their lives. These ‘soft skills’ will help them develop the means to improve their resilience skillset and their ability to manage their mental health in the future.
“The instructor was very good at building rapport with the group & encouraging them.”
Group Leader, St Mary’s Church.
