Outdoor education programmes in the eastern region and beyond.
Supporting schools in the delivery of their outdoor education requirements, Essex Outdoors is a leading provider of outdoor education programmes - and is now taking bookings for its affordable and adventurous range of activities in 2015.
From a one day multi-activity day to 5 night/4 day residential programmes, Essex Outdoors has four centres which can provide over 30 activities in a fun, safe and challenging environment.
Supporting the National Curriculum
From archery and canoeing through to quad biking and zip wire, all of the activities are delivered by a team of friendly and qualified instructors. Many can be tailored to support National Curriculum requirements such as PE, history and science. In addition, all of the programmes are beneficial for children’s physical development - as well as broadening horizons, promoting positive values and developing confidence and self-esteem.
Easily accessible centres
Each centre has great transport links to London and the Eastern region, making it an ideal location for schools to satisfy their outdoor education and activity requirements in a variety of settings including woodland, urban and coastal. Centres include:
Danbury: Set within 70 acres of prime Essex countryside, this centre offers residential and day visits and provides action-packed activities, including mountain biking, climbing and canoeing.
