What will students see and do?
Adventure Expeditions provides unique programmes that brings outdoor learning to your door. The programme is made up of experienced teachers who guide students through outdoor activities and show them how to put their knowledge of maths, science, geography, and other subjects to use.
It also offers programmes focused around the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
While on the trip, students will see the countryside and will be shown how to survive in the wilderness and will learn more about the geography of their location.
During the trip, students will spend time hiking, boating, and team building. They’ll also be faced with problem-solving questions that will show them how to think critically and work with their classmates.
Teachers can select activities which best fit their curriculum and make the most sense for what their pupils are currently learning. They can also select seasonal courses that focus on specific skills.
On summer courses, students will experience scrambling, mountaineering, rock climbing, hill walking, and navigation.
If you opt for a winter course, students will spend their time going on guided climbs, ice climbing, and participating in winter mountaineering.
Teachers can also opt for overseas trips that take students to Norway. In these courses, students will be exposed to ice climbing and glacier walking during their adventures.
