School Residentials

It is up to us to make sure you have the most amazing experience when visiting the site, so we have designed two awesome programmes to suit any requirements you may have.

Design your own

Our “design your own” programme allows you to tailor your trip to your requirements and your budget. From accommodation and activities to catering requirements, we can design a course for you. We offer accommodation from tents to indoor lodges. We can also host full instructor led programmes or you can run self-led activities. Utilise our fully catered option or use our self-catering field kitchen – the choice is yours. These trips are yours, they should be catered to your objectives and most importantly should be fun, engaging and stress free. That’s why you as leaders and teachers drive this trip, of course with the help of our experts facilitating adventure throughout your stay.

Deluxe Package / We Do It For You

Our deluxe package takes the pressure off the planning and gives you a few extras. We will still design the right programme to your requirements, providing full catering, early arrival and late check out, a full range of activities and options, and a dedicated course director leading the adventure. The deluxe package includes full facilitation throughout by our staff, including meal serving, welcome and review sessions, and consistent staff throughout to ensure your students build rapport and maximise every second of the trip. This really is a fully catered, fully led programme to take the stress out and bring the fun in. We can also bring the fun to your school assemblies or parent’s evenings and really start to build the excitement.

‘We have campsites suitable for everyone – from experienced outdoor lovers to those who’ve never pitched a tent before. Whatever your needs, we have a site to suit you’

Don’t worry if you don’t have any camping equipment – we have tents, shelters and equipment available to hire.
