What will students see and do?
Acclimbatize’s work with educational groups, youth charities and badged youth organisations has made up the highest percentage share of its work since 1999. Acclimbatize specialises in offering authentic adventurous activities using the spectacular natural environments of the Derbyshire Peak District near the Derwent Valley and Matlock.
Whether you are looking to accelerate social processes at the beginning of a school term, develop or improve key team building exercises, reward good attendance or simply want to enable your school trip group the opportunity to experience new and exciting outdoor adventure activities, Acclimbatize will work in partnership with group leaders to ensure that your course aims are mapped into the delivery and then highlighted in review.
Acclimbatize is an AALS licence holder, and holds both the Learning Outside the Classroom and Adventure Mark. These are HSE’s statutory regulations and the adventure industry’s (non regulatory) standard for organisational quality. These three indicators are intended to assure UK school trip organisers of the highest standards of safety and operational management.
You can choose from a wide variety of school trip ideas, suitable for primary school trips and secondary school trips. There’s a huge range of outdoor and adventurous activities on offer, including: rock climbing, kayaking, water sports, raft building, orienteering, geo cache, gorge scrambling and abseiling.
There is also scope to try some of the most exhilarating adventure activities in the UK, such as exploring the Peak District’s caves and some of the best British canoeing routes. Whatever you choose, a visit to Acclimbatize is sure to be one of the best school trips your pupils will experience, focusing on team building activities to strengthen a number of skills.
How does the trip link to the curriculum?
Adventure days out at Acclimbatize place strong emphasis on teamwork, engagement and cooperation. The team emphasises this in briefings, and captures the actions in review. Staff do this to improve key team working skills and raise levels of individual performance per educational visit.
The company’s approach is defined by a policy of ‘Challenge by Choice’. Participants on the courses are positively encouraged and actively supported to achieve their best personal level of challenge. Acclimbatize believes in giving people the space to build and extend their own confidence in a socially acceptable environment that supports learning for all.
