Description

Our fantastic school adventure and challenge days offer the option for groups to take part in an action packed experience with activities that are specifically designed to meet the needs and requirements for the age groups with which we work, focusing on ensuring pupils are clear on the outcomes and theme of the day’s activities and maintaining the pace and fluidity throughout the event with us to keep the group engaged and motivated throughout.

Schools can select from one of our superb adventure challenge day activity packages or we can design a bespoke project to meet your specification. We ensure all of our package days are great value for money and fun filled.

Please summarize why you are great to support learning. Think about anything unique.

SSG Active Adventure & Challenge originates from programmes designed to support schools with their PE, school sports and learning outside the classroom needs. All of our programmes and the activities have mapped learning outcomes embedded in them to ensure everything we do has maximum impact towards the benefits for the participants.

Our qualified education team ensures that the method, content, level and type of delivery activities are suitable for the different key stages/age groups we work with and are able to map learning within our proogrammes to any curriculum outcomes desired.

Because our programme planning starts with the needs of the participants, which are then linked to the most appropriate types of activities and formats we can offer, we can ensure the pupils/learners are getting exactly what they need to from the experience with us and all desired learning outcomes are met and evidenced as required.

What does a typical school workshop visit include?

SSG offer two school based workshop programmes:

•             Active Adventure Activity Day

•             Wild Survival Activity Day

The Active Adventure Activity Day is based on team building and problem solving challenges and operates a fun competitive framework with groups working independently to get more ‘team points’ than the other teams taking part. The activities for this day are selected by the school, in consultation with us, based on what they would like to include and what they wish the outcomes of the day to be. We offer a wide range of different activities, including headliners such as our mobile climbing wall, archery and inflatable obstacle course.  This is a truly amazing experience and with our scaffold rigs, flags, bunting and other staging we transform a school field and/or playground into a spectacular event experience.

The Wild Survival Activity Day is based around bushcraft and survival skills, through fun and engaging workshop sessions, that will promote working effectively in a team, appreciation of the natural environment and how important it is to operate effectively as a team to survive in an outdoor environment we offer an experience on your school site unlike any other.  We will work with the school to stage the day in the best possible way and utilize any natural woodland and outdoor space they have, although this is not essential, as the Wild Survival Activity Day can be delivered just as effectively in the most urban of settings.

Our activity days follow a flexible framework to suit a school needs and can be adjusted to suit varying participant numbers, age groups and learning outcomes.

Through our exciting mobile equipment and excellent staging, we transform everyday school spaces into engaging and exciting learning/participating areas.
