What will students see and do?
No Limits Development offers adventure activities and bespoke expeditions in a variety of locations. Its network includes venues across the East Midlands, north west England and beyond.
Whether you’re looking for a one day of adventure activities or a multi-day residential in England, Scotland or Wales, there’s something for everyone.
Single-day adventure activities may include raft-building or canoeing. Students might spend the day climbing, caving, or learning about bushcraft and orienteering.
One- to three-day bushcraft adventures will get students out into nature. They’ll learn wilderness skills like shelter-building, campfire cooking and finding safe drinking water. Outdoor learning activities can also include navigation, first aid, hunting, archery and more.
School residentials may see students undertaking mountain adventures in places like the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia, the Peak District, the Lake District and Scotland. Student expeditions typically last three to five days. Adventure activities can include climbing, abseiling and wild camping in mountainous terrain.
If you choose a river adventure, pupils will spend two to five days along the rivers Thames, Wye, Severn or at another location in the UK. This outdoor learning residential will see students canoeing a classic waterway. They’ll lunch along the riverbank and observe native wildlife.
Students can also have a three- to five-day multi-adventure trip. This offers students a variety of fun and challenging activities, including adventure trekking, camping, or bushcraft. Students can learn gorge scrambling, climbing, kayaking, raft building and more.

The team can also come to your school for one- or two-day explorer programs for students in Key Stages 1 and 2. These workshops offer students a cross-curricular experience. They’ll explore the natural world (polar regions, mountains, deserts, jungles or oceans) and learn outdoor survival skills and bushcraft.
There are also one-day and multi-day leadership and team building programmes on offer. These can be adapted to meet your needs and are great for sixth form inductions.
