We are aiming to resume activities in line with the easing of lockdown.
This means that we intend, where possible, to run our courses as planned from 8th March onwards; initially with day-only courses, and with the option to camp* once campsites reopen on or after 17th May.
Currently the Department of Education have published advice against returning to school trips from March 8th; however, they have also stated that external organisations may support the provision of extra- curricular activities, both within the school grounds and externally. We appreciate that schools will need the go ahead from the department of education before returning to overnight camps and expeditions away from school, and that each school will want to risk assess what they are able to offer students. We will be working with schools to identify the best route forward for each group, and any updates for participants using us through schools will be communicated by the school.
We are aiming for all open expeditions that are already booked to go ahead as planned. Additional dates for the summer holidays will be released soon.
We have put a lot of time and effort into updating risk assessments and policies, making sure we are ready to re-open in line with the roadmap set out by the government; as such we are proud to have received the 'we're good to go' industry standard mark.

Introducing the Rich Adventure family
Educating through experience
Rich Adventure is a family-based company based in the midlands, delivering outdoor activities across the country to individuals, schools, clubs and corporate groups. We offer a range of courses from single day activities to multi day expeditions. All our products and courses are mouldable to your needs.
As we are not tied to a single location, we are able to source accommodation and facilities in areas that are geographically suited to our clients- whether you’re after somewhere close to home to reduce travel time for a coach full of excited children, or an adventure that allows for a remote wild camping experience in close proximity to climbing and canoeing venues, we can find a site to meet your needs for the duration of your stay with us.
What’s more, not having a permanent centre allows us to keep our running costs as low as possible, passing on huge savings to you!
We really are a family business
Pete, Catherine and Claire (pictured) are Team Rich Adventure. With a strong team of freelancers, our good friend Rob helping out with staffing, and a healthy dose of support from Catherine's grandparents, we organise every course from start to finish.
This 'personal touch' means we know what's been promised at the point of booking, and work tirelessly to deliver the highest quality experiences.
Pete brings drive and motivation, and a great sense of organisation to get things off the ground and run our courses flawlessly.
Claire is the academic one, tackling most of the paperwork, from finance to marketing and checking route cards. She gets out of the office wherever possibly for fresh air, exercise and a bit of coaching.
Catherine keeps things fun and exciting, keeping us on our toes and engaging our clients on a different level. She is a real independent adventurer!
Speak to us!
We don't bite.
We try to be available as much as possible for our clients and get back to you quickly whenever and however you get in touch. Being a small, family team and doing a lot of work from home or being out on courses, sometimes we're hard to get hold of on the phone. Through winter we dedicate Tuesday- Thursday 9-5 to 'Rich Adventure time' - so that's when we're most likely to be in the office! We'd love to hear from you- if you prefer to chat on the phone but keep missing us, please drop us a message with a convenient time to call you back. We quite often reply to emails late in the evening, when Catherine is (usually!) asleep and not trying to add to our messages. We're usually available on live chat in the evenings as well as throughout the day.
