Residential programmes provide a great opportunity for secondary school students to be rewarded, gain experience of the wider world and face a range of challenges that can contribute significantly to their educational and personal development goals.
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 for secondary schools, 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 activitiesavailable 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 at Key Stages 3 & 4. We also offer packages to help you evidence Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural (SMSC) outcomes from visits to us. For study breaks with a difference, we can also design you tailored study and revision breaksto support your coursework aims or exam preparations.
To compliment our daytime sessions we also offer a wide range of evening activities to keep everyone entertained, from camp fire circles and cinema nights through to silent discos and It's a Knockout!
