Our Aim

To deliver learning outcomes from outdoor experiences.

Defining the aim of your group’s visit is very important to us here at Surrey Outdoor Learning and Development. You may have specific goals in mind for what you want to achieve with your pupils or we can help you define those goals.

They could be involvement, broadening horizons, development of certain skills, self-awareness, building confidence, helping coordination, improving fitness, better communication or developing leadership skills.

The Outdoors is a fantastic place to achieve all of these goals and more!

Our Love for the Surrey Hills
