Outdoor Activities for Schools, Colleges and Universities

Outdoor Activities for Schools and Colleges

Outdoor activities are recognised as an important means by which young people can take on adventure challenges and learn to weigh and consider risk, through which they are able to collaborate, to support each other and to measure their achievement against the challenge in front of them rather than through competition against others expectations.

 

Key Adventures has been running adventurous outdoor activity events for schools, colleges and universities since 1994 with some of our clients returning for 20 years.

 

Our services can include arrangement of accommodation, catering and transport, though we are usually engaged to provide a programme of activities for groups of up to 120 youngsters with their accompanying adults.

 

Primary and secondary schools often request a programme of taster sessions of traditional outdoor activities, the most popular being abseiling, ghyll scrambling (aka gorge scrambling), canoeing, rock climbing, hillwalking and raft building, each run by highly experienced and professionally qualified instructors.

 

Secondary schools often ask for expedition support, navigation as well as the traditional outdoor pursuits. We also develop outdoor team building activities requiring collaboration and cooperation, effective communication and elements of leadership.

 

We also offer campcraft, wild camping and bivouacking, expeditions, adventure journeys and a host of other activities.

 

We are licensed by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority, insured with the Activity Industry Mutual and we operate throughout the years.

 

Our license, insurance policy, operational policies and documents and generic risk assessments can be viewed here.
