What will students see and do?

Based in the natural environment around Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire, Arthog Outreach operates locally to bring the adventures to you or takes you to the adventure with the minimum amount of travel.

The area abounds with opportunities for enjoying the outdoors at many different levels and offers visitors a rare glimpse of a landscape influenced by human activity over thousands of years. Ancient burial sites, standing stones and hill forts are intermingled with more recent canals, mines and settlements.

Activities on offer at Arthog Outreach include canoeing, rock climbing at the Short Wood Centre, walking across the hills of South Shropshire, caving, paddle sports in the local canal, orienteering, underground exploration through abandoned mines and caves, low ropes, abseiling, crate stacking, bushcraft and mountain biking, as well as team-building and personal development challenges.

Despite most activities being based in off-site areas that require travelling to, Arthog Outreach tailors your trip so that you get the best value from each day.

Students can also stay overnight, sleeping out under the stars on a survival course, in tents on a Duke of Edinborough (DofE) expedition or in bunkhouse type accommodation.
