The Outdoors Project Leadership and Character development programme

The Outdoors Project Leadership and Character development programme

Do you know/are you 16+ and interested in gaining experience working within the Children’s Activities &  Outdoors Adventure Industry?

We are often approached by school leavers &/or their parents about gaining work experience with The Outdoors Project.  We have now put a more formal programme in place to make sure the volunteers get the most out of the experience and that we have the potential to gain new staff.

This would suit college students requiring work based learning as part of their course, Duke of Edinburgh participants or anyone looking to gain valuable experience in the industry.  We are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated young people.   This is a chance to share your love of fun, nature, action and the great outdoors and to learn new skills.    Please get in touch for more information if you are interested in joining the programme this July onwards Summer Holiday and/or September 2019 School Term. 

Autumn Term '19 After School Club report

Autumn Term '19 After School Club report

Activities this term have included; * Storm Kettle & Nettle Tea brewing * Viking Pottery * Minecraft Volcano Build * Creeper Game * Apache Lahal Stick Game * Viking Kubb * The Randomizer (which mission will you pick?) * Nerf (at participating schools only) & Adventure Games all featuring the key ingredient FUN !

The children that attend the club are full of energy, intelligence and charisma and these dynamic personalities really create a great environment for fun and learning.   There is a lot of focus on sharing praise and encouragement for effort. During the sessions we work through problems to find solutions, help the children understand everyone has different abilities and strengths and encourage each child to make decisions for themselves. The children have shown their resilience in adverse weather conditions during the first half of term and we’ve also seen some amazing team work.

Nothing like messing about in the great outdoors!
By Rachel Mostyn

I’ve always had a real thing about holiday clubs and in fact any kind of organised activity for kids to do during the holidays that might even remotely feel like school.
