Why you are you a great place for educational visits?
Outdoor learning is a vital part of a young person’s education. It is extremely common that a young person who struggles in a classroom environment flourish when met with the outdoors. Their motivation and understanding changes when they are no longer faced with the four walls of a classroom. Those who excel in class¬rooms become more versatile learners. They learn skills that they wouldn’t usual find in an indoor environment, and find how to apply their current knowledge to new surroundings.

Do you have the LOtC Quality Badge or any other accreditation such as AALA?
