Outdoor Education Programme

Field Studies | Expedition | Camping

Our outdoor education programme is designed to promote team building through a combination of adventure activities, as well as expedition training through search and rescue and orienteering challenges. The programme is ideal for those interested in a future in outdoor education/recreation, physical education, eco-tourism or youth development following the lead from our expert instructors.

Set at the wonderful Finborough Hall, Suffolk, the programme can contain activities that are not only enjoyable but will also bond your class and strengthen moral. Our staff are trained to get the most from each participant to ensure everyone benefits from the experience with noticeable results.

Subject to availability, our programmes are completely customisable and flexible dependent upon your requirements. Please speak to a member of our team to discuss your needs.

From quad biking to archery, abseiling to bushcraft, we build your programme around your learning outcomes.

 

WHAT’S THE XPLORE PROMISE?

It is our goal to ensure each student on any of our programmes leave with a developed aspect of the below. We strive in helping children unlock their potential through the use of outdoor education.

  • New Experiences | Try things you may not have tried anywhere else, such as quad biking, archery, crate climbing and more! Skills from these activities can help you in everyday life situations, from teamwork to communication skills, we’ve got it covered!
  • Social Development | A student’s first residential school trip is designed to help encourage their independence. We focus on developing other life skills such as positive group interaction, creativity, leadership and problem solving.
  • Confidence Boost | Interacting with new people in a new environment can be scary for some, but with the reassurance and 24/7 supervision from our Xplore staff team, we ensure that children are able to unlock their full potential through the use of hands on learning. New experiences like these are a huge confidence boost to children!
  • Evening Activities | Each evening after dinner, the whole group takes part in a fun and social activity. From Nightfall Navigation, a timed orienteering challenge and campfires, full of songs and marshmallows to disco night, the perfect way to end your stay.
