What we offer on a school trip
South Cerney Outdoor Education Centre has been established for 40 years and has a senior coaching team with over 100 years collective experience delivering a range of water sports experiences and qualifications as well as team building, archery and orienteering.
Whether you are looking to offer your group a fun half day out, or would like to immerse them in a full residential experience, we have something to offer you and would welcome the opportunity to discuss your needs.
Many of the children that visit us through schools or youth groups come back with their family to enjoy our Pay and Play boat hire, water sports clubs, courses, birthday parties or family tipi experiences.

To achieve the following outcomes?
Just some of our most popular packages:
Discovery Package - If you are looking for a package that encourages self discovery and personal success, we have created a series of taster activities for your young people to take part in. The learning is experiential and based on simple and safe techniques that encourage young people to take and make decisions in an unfamiliar environment. Qualified and experienced instructors will facilitate the learning through a plan, do and review approach to ensure they have fun whilst learning essential life-lessons in and around our 45 acre lake and woodland experience area.
Water Sports Experience - This package will enable young people to gain the benefits of physical activity through the exhilaration of watersports such as Kayaking, Windsurfing, Stand-Up Paddling, and Sailing. They will gain the skills and techniques to take on competitive challenges suited to their ability level, whilst building self-confidence and team working attributes. The learning is progressive and well resourced using our experienced, qualified instructors to coach and review their progress. If required we are able to adapt courses leading to nationally recognised qualifications.
Residential Packages - Take advantage of our lakeside location with bunk beds in rustic cabins, roll-mats in traditional tipis or overnight camping. We offer self-catering and fully catered packages to suit your needs and, with all activities on site, you are only a step away from the fun and challenges. We work with groups to develop personal qualities and co-operating over activities such as domestic chores wrapped around engaging and developmental activities throughout your stay. This is an excellent choice for leaders wanting positive changes in confidence, managing feelings, cultivating successful relationships and problem solving.
Re-Engage Package - Do you have individuals that struggle to fit within the traditional educational framework, or that regularly disrupt the learning experience of others? We have adapted programmes specifically developed to explore behaviour management, relationships, problem solving and communication, tailored to suit the individuals and engage them in fun yet challenging tasks that lead to positive outcomes through competition and discovery. An ideal investment for individuals qualifying for the Pupil Premium that can have a lasting positive impact both in and outside the classroom.
