We are an award-winning outdoors kids adventure club working in outdoor locations across Sussex and Bristol.
What started as a weekly drop in bootcamp in Brighton has expanded rapidly due to public demand!
Firstly an equiry to run a Birthday Party, then to run a club for a school, we now run 45 after school clubs per week, toddlers groups, forest school workshops, school visits and teacher training.
Our school holiday club programme runs in local parks and at our base camp in Sussex throughout all major school holiday dates and across 8 different local parks.
Along side this mayhem are our 6 ‘Saplings Project’ Pre School parent and toddler sessions.
We welcome over thousand school children per week to our clubs in one form or another and are inspired and motivated by their imaginations.
Summer saw our very own countryside "Base Camp" site in Ditchling welcome over 600 children. Base Camp is part field, part woodland with a permanent outdoor classroom, fire pit, parachute shelter for rainy days, parking for coaches, toilets and plenty of space for exploring, learning and adventures!
We also have our first franchise up and running in Bristol.
We love what we do and feel that nature can provide reward, health, happiness and adventure so come join in..
See you out there!
Why we do what we do
The Outdoors Project was a concept that grew from becoming increasingly concerned as a father watching my own three children (James, Ella & Mia) spending too much time in front of TV and computer screens. I grew up in America til the age of 12 and spent most of my childhood hiding in the wood from dawn til dusk building dens and getting muddy.
It's never been rocket science to me, but it’s increasingly difficult as parents to enthuse and encourage children away from the technology which has become such a useful but sometimes consuming part of our lives.
After working for an outdoor children’s charity, several afterschool clubs, teaching rock climbing and bush craft and having worked in the extreme sports industry for almost 9 years, I felt this was a passion that I wanted to pass on. It’s that simple really.
