Outdoor Residential Centres

School trip outdoor residential centres provide a great environment for pupils to get out of the classroom and experience a multitude of different sports in the great outdoors. The benefits are numerous physical exercise, challenging experiences and team work plus having lots of fun around the camp fire. From these experiences pupils will gain personal skills such as resilience, self-confidence, wellbeing, problem solving skills and social interaction.
