What will students see and do?
FSC Orielton is located within a National Park in the heart of Wales, offering students a chance to truly experience the great outdoors.
They will climb sand dunes, go hiking, observe the geography within the national park, see wildlife in its natural habitat and learn bushcraft skills.
Younger children can listen to tales, and take an introductory course on living things and their natural habitats.
Budding photographers could also practise their skills here in this perfect natural environment to capture some stunning photos. And artists have the perfect backdrop for painting and drawing.
There are also team activities such as canoeing, low ropes, rock climbing and more, that will give students a new appreciation of nature, while helping build confidence, teamwork and resilience.
Teaching resources provided
There are several different resources available for various age groups and subjects.
But if you want to study something not covered then contact the FSC directly to see if there is a custom itinerary with curriculum resources available for you.
Minimum and maximum group size
There is no strict maximum number of students set. However, a lot of courses do require at least 10 students for them to run.
