Children and Schools

The Surrey Hills Adventure Company want to inspire young people and have the aim of helping to increase the understanding of the woodland and its ecology whilst introducing the benefits of taking risks in a safe, well managed and informative environment.

Their courses deliver and inspire passion, whilst motivating young people to become successful learners and to develop as healthy, confident, enterprising and responsible citizens with an understanding and mindfulness towards our environment.

The core values of the Surrey Hills Adventure Company courses echo the key concepts of outdoor learning and education:  Challenge, Enjoyment, Relevance, Depth and Development of the whole person with an adventurous approach to learning and connecting the curriculum to the wider world.

Through practical, hands on learning children gain a deeper understanding of the concepts taught. The Surrey Hills Adventure Company work closely with the schools teachers and educational staff in order to develop and deliver a relevant experience that supports what students are learning in the classroom.

The Surrey Hills Adventure Company follows the Forest School ethos of  ‘child led’ learning through fun, adventure and enjoyment in a woodland environment which leads to a greater understanding and respect for the environment whilst delivering many valuable lessons both educationally and socially along the way.

Holiday Camps and Adventure Days

Surrey Hills Holiday adventures are an innovative, proven way of allowing children to develop and grow by spending time outside in a safe and supportive environment.

The Adventures are based on Forest School teaching techniques, which are proven to increase children’s motivation, confidence and communication skills.

Your child will take part in engaging, motivating and achievable tasks in a safe woodland environment. Accompanied by a trained instructor, they will make new friends and learn new skills.

The range of activities on offer is constantly developing, but a typical session could include:

  • Shelter building
  • Crafting from natural materials
  • Tracking
  • Environmental art
  • Safe fire making
  • Games
  • Using tools
  • Green woodwork
  • Assault courses

The general age range for young people attending woodland adventures are from 8yrs – 13yrs old and with a day lasting from 10.00 am until 4.00pm, 1/2 days are also available.
