Bespoke Adventures for Schools

We enjoy working with school and youth groups of any size to help them turn an idea for an expedition or adventure into reality. These can be stand alone days or as part of a residential experience.

Maybe you want an canoe exploration adventure in the North West Highlands and hope to reach the top of Suliven?

What about walking, cycling and canoeing from the west to east coasts of Scotland?

Does your trip have a purpose? Is it for fun, to raise money for a charity, to provide your young people with a learning and personal development opportunity or something else entirely different?

Beyond Adventure work with schools and youth groups to provide a tailor made programme of challenging outdoor activities. These can be stand alone days or as part of a residential experience. Let us know if you have an idea and we will bring the equipment and expertise.

To make the most of the activity sessions and enhance the personal learning we can offer additional reflective and engaging evening sessions or support school staff with this. We would encourage evidence gathering activities such as photo journals, diaries or video recordings to help with the personal development of students. We guarantee an engaging experience of the outdoor environment as we facilitate young people completing their learning journey - whether its walking, biking, climbing or canoeing.

Giving young people outdoor experiences provides opportunities to enrich their curriculum and challenges them as both individuals and as effective contributors within a team. Based in Highland Perthshire we are able to offer adventures that include: open canoeing, hill walking, rock climbing, gorge walking, abseiling, team building and orienteering. Accommodation can either be camping if moving on most nights or based in one location and using a bunkhouse or hostel. We can provide the food for you but if you want to save money why not get the group involved in the planning and buying? It’s all a valuable part of their learning journey.

Thank you so much for your huge organisation, good humour and fine effort in leading our S5 group safely across some very beautiful , (if wet !), parts of central Scotland. The weather was certainly not with us, and yet despite that you helped rejig the programme expertly to fit the conditions and the group, which is highly appreciated.
 
The pupils responded very well to your encouraging style of coaching and they all grew as young people which was the central aim. We really enjoyed the experience from you Mark and the input from Alex which were both spot on. Thanks to Fred and Rod for all the logistics support and company too. A big thank you for all the thought and encouragement for the group. I think they really enjoyed and benefited from the several modes of travel and from the different environments.
