Why being in nature helps our mental health

Why being in nature helps our mental health

We spend our days outdoors with children, playing, running, laughing, working together.  To us, the benefits of being outdoors are obvious; we see and feel them in every session. All of our sessions are held in green spaces,  a mix of playgrounds, parks and fields. The colder months involve shorter days and often the time spent indoors added in with the darkness can cause our mental health to dip. Of course, this can occur at any time of year but the motivation to get up, wrap up and head outside when we are feeling tired and a little flat can be hard to find.

Friends and parents often say that they would love to have a job like ours.  We spend a huge proportion of our working life outdoors in the fresh air, laughing, exercising and playing. How many adults can add those activities to their job description! Granted, there is a huge amount of planning that goes into the clubs, to ensure that children have the most fun possible, whilst in a free range and safe outdoor environment but the good news is that we have done most of the hard work for you, meaning that were you to run your own Outdoors Project Franchise, you would be ready to go almost immediately.

Being an all weather, all year round outdoors club we often get asked this question but here's a bit of info that will hopefully help clear up any doubts or concerns.

Our clubs are all outdoors come rain or shine, children are spending their childcare club time in the fresh air, partaking in a wide range of activities that teach them a whole range of skills including team building, navigation skills, art, leadership, planning and resilience. The sun may not always be beaming but the smiles will be!

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.
