Residentials for Primary Schools

Residential programmes provide a great opportunity for young people to be rewarded, gain experience of the wider world and face a range of challenges that can contribute significantly to their personal development.  

Outdoor learning can also be a valuable tool for developing social and group skills - helping young people to engage in their school and home lives and providing opportunities to improve health and fitness.  

At Essex Outdoors we offer a wide range of residential programmes, from overnight stays through to five day/four night residential visits.  All of our packages are fully catered, meaning all you have to do is enjoy yourself. 

Whether you're looking for Scandinavian-style log cabins, traditional camping in patrol tents or self-contained accommodation, Essex Outdoors can provide what you need against a backdrop of ancient woodland, an urban oasis or beautiful coastlines.  

Whichever centre you choose, there are a wide range of activities available and our experienced team will be more than happy to identify the right programme for you based on your particular requirements - whether that's having fun and trying new things, or linking to the national curriculum. We also offer packages to help you evidence Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural (SMSC) outcomes from visits to us.

In conjunction with day time programs we also offer a variety of evening activities to keep everyone entertained, from camp fire circles and cinema nights through to silent discos and Its a Knockout!

Prices from £137 per person for a three day/two night residential in log cabins with 10 activity sessions.
