Spring into Action – Engage and Thrive with Outdoor Learning


As the cold winter months transition into the refreshing spring season, it’s time to spring into action and provide exciting outdoor learning opportunities for your students. So why not explore the wonders of nature and enhance your students’ skills.

Our Spring into Action days are designed to keep students engaged, entertained, and foster their growth while immersing them in the beauty of the wilderness

You might already know that spending time outdoors can significantly boost mood and well-being. We wholeheartedly support that claim! Moreover, we believe in enhancing students’ appreciation for nature through water and land activities. This includes getting stuck into fire lighting, shelter building, kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding and team-building exercises that encourage problem-solving and collaboration, all of which can take place at the following centres that provide a beautiful backdrop for activities:

  • Astbury Watersports Centre (CW12 4HL)
  • Trafford Watersports Centre (M33 2LX)
  • Chasewater Activity Centre (WS7 3QY)

Our activity days provide immense enjoyment for learners of all ages and key stages, starting from 7+. The day will fly by in a blur of excitement, with students eagerly embracing each challenge. By the end of the day, your learners will feel like outdoor survival champions, proud of their achievements.

To ensure a tailored and beneficial experience for you and your group, we will collaborate with you in organizing the schedule and activities that align with your desired outcomes. Let’s embark on this thrilling journey together and watch your students blossom through outdoor education during the rejuvenating spring season.
