What will students see and do?
Adventure Sunderland is a small charity dedicated to giving everyone the opportunity to experience an outdoor adventure: “Our missions are to provide affordable educational, recreational and leisure activities for the people of Wearside and the surrounding areas and use adventurous activities to contribute to the personal and social development of young people.”
They understand the importance of gaining valuable life skills through outdoor activities and provide a fun and safe environment to get students active and learning outside the classroom.
There’s a wide range of adventurous activities on offer, including stand up paddleboarding, walking and navigation, coasteering, kayaking, powerboating, canoeing, bell boating, fencing, archery, pier jumping, surfing, bodyboarding, rifle shooting, climbing and raft building.
The site offers day visits, where students join staff on the Roker seafront for a full- or half-day of activities designed to boost confidence and teamwork, and test pupils’ abilities.
For those unable to travel, Adventure Sunderland has introduced outdoor classroom days, where highly-trained staff come to your school with fun-filled activities to challenge your students’ minds in the safety of your school grounds.
If you’re looking for a progressive program of activity sessions, Adventure Sunderland’s term visits are bespoke packages created to meet your curriculum needs.
Residential prep allows students to try activities before residential trips, giving them the reassurance they need to take on on challenges, while also helping groups to bond.
Beach schools give children in their early years the opportunity to learn and develop in a natural environment, sparking their intrinsic motivation to explore, create and be curious about the world around them.
