Many of our instructors are ex-services and all activities are overseen by a former serving officer. We focus on honing leadership, teamwork and developing confidence, discipline and trust.

Choose from single-day activities to a residential trip covering many activities. Suitable for any group size and experience level, with locations across the UK, near military camps or in rural settings.

    “The feedback from the instructors and cadets is that they thoroughly enjoyed the events. As for myself, the pre-trip info and advice was spot on. I have already recommended you to the others. Thanks for everything!”

    Lothian and Borders Battalion ACF

    “It was great to see pupils emerge as natural leaders, share ideas and work through the tasks. The level of commitment and support shown for each other was outstanding and even the more nervous pupils helped support their teammates down tricky sections, whilst everyone cheered each other as they got lowered down steep waterfalls.”
    Thanks to the school staff and outdoor activity provider, Lost Earth Adventures, for organising such a great trip.
