Adventure is offering young people and adults the opportunity to paddle or even sail a canoe around a great lake, pitch up and enjoy a brew on a remote island, explore the vast underground caverns, navigate around an orienteer course and more.

Adventurous activities are usually a shared experience, so they provide excellent learning opportunities for social development. Throughout the programme the consequences of student choices will be real and apparent, one outcome will be to learn to balance our own needs with those of others – a crucial life skill. Your Real Adventure development programme will have an effect on all those involved, staff and young people alike.
Aims to Develop
- Self-confidence and self-esteem through achievement of challenges.
- Awareness of personal strengths and weaknesses through active reviewing.
- Basic target setting skills. The difference between those who succeed and those who are less likely to.
- Giving and receiving feedback from peers through group reviews during and after activities.
- Trust in self, peers and staff through shared experience.
- Problem solving skills through challenging use of the outdoor environment.
- An excitement of being in a team through exploring.
- A belief in the team if a situation becomes challenging and a conflict arises.
- Openness to give and receive support through the use of tasks which will stretch the edge of personal and team abilities.
- The willingness to accept personal sacrifice to resolve conflict through building trust.
- Learning only takes place in an environment where individuals feel safe, both physically and emotionally. Real Adventure staff will work with your staff to create an environment in which the young people will feel confident enough to challenge themselves over and above their expectations. It is envisaged that the development aspect of the programme will be tailored to each young person, in close consultation between all relevant staff and, where appropriate, the young person concerned. This will allow the flexibility needed when working with people.
Special educational needs
At Real Adventure we regularly work with special educational needs (SEN) children and young people who need extra support, or require an advanced programme of learning in order to reach their full potential.
We work with individuals who have speech and language difficulties, learning difficulties such as dyslexia and autism, and individuals with social, emotional and mental health needs, or have a combination of these.
You may also work with gifted and talented individuals - although we believe all individuals are gifted and talented in their own way!
A key aspect of working in this field is identifying individual needs and being responsible for creating a safe, stimulating and supportive learning environment. We will work with you to understand each individuals' needs and design a programme and support staffing needs to accommodate accordingly.
