We offer a range of formal and informal Environmental Education sessions for all young people from reception to A-level and beyond, youth groups and families. Our Environmental Education courses can be curriculum linked, be focussed towards achieving the John Muir Award or incorporated into an adventure.

The John Muir Award as part of your programme
The award can become an integral part of your trip. It encourages participants to experience wild places and the environment to develop an awareness of and responsibility for the places we enjoy and want to protect.
Your programme can be largely based upon outdoor activities, which is what we do best! Through the use of activities such as climbing and canoeing. Your group can explore, discover and conserve their new surroundings, maintaining the main John Muir principles. The programme can be designed to offer a powerful mixture of adventure, self discovery, learning and fun. Through a wide range of activities students will discover more about themselves whilst acquiring many new skills.
Alternatively your John Muir Award can be largely based around the environment and geographical interest with elements of outdoor activities. There will be a strong focus on integrating the environment into the learning objectives and values of the course, through the incorporation of the John Muir Award and encourages people of all ages to connect, enjoy and care for wild places.
The John Muir Award can incorporated within specific areas of school study:
- Environmental Studies
- Outdoor Education
- Personal & Social Development
We just wanted to thank you for running our Real Adventure Club. It was a great success and very much enjoyed by the children. We really appreciated the though and planning that went into each session and your enthusiasm and commitment to the venture. It seemed very strange to not be out on the fells in the dark this week!
We hope we will be able to work with you again in the future.
