Outdoor Learning support
Here at Rich Adventure, we understand that outdoor learning isn't all about the big stuff. Multi day camps, canoe trips and ongoing courses may be our bread and butter, but we understand that schools need access to outdoor learning in a more affordable, autonomous way. We're here to help remove the barriers, as we believe that every child should have access to outdoor learning on a regular basis as part of the school day as opposed to an occasional treat.
We can provide ideas on how best to use your outside space and assist with risk assessments, support your staff in the delivery of Forest Schools sessions to get you to a point where they're trained and confident to deliver it themselves, and provide staff training days on ways to use the outdoor classroom integrated into the national curriculum and linking with current themes in class.
Claire is a level 3 Forest Schools Leader, and an Outdoor Learning Cards course director, with experience not only delivering activities to pupils but also developing cross-curricular activity programs to engage pupils through outdoor learning, and delivering training to teachers and support staff to enable ongoing programs of outdoor learning in school.

Get in touch and Claire will happily visit for a consultation to share ideas on how you can make the most of your environment, in the school grounds and out in the local area. As a small family run business based in the heart of the National Forest, we aim to support local schools in affordable ways to make the most of the natural environment, so our consultations are free for schools within the National Forest.
