Studfold Farm Activity Centre and Camp Site
Outdoor Education, Team Building and Adventure Centre
Pately Bridge, Yorkshire Dales
Studfold Activity Centre is an award winning, 4-star residential adventure facility for groups looking to learn or bond through adventure.
Our focus is on the highest standards of learning through adventure and outdoor education. We cater for groups that prefer quality, providing outstanding service, attention to detail and an overall exceptional experience. Instructor to client ratios are low, equipment is top of the line, clean and regularly updated, the food is fresh, nutritious and hearty.
We provide a platform for your organisation to develop as a team through real experiences, facilitated learning and high, bespoke levels of challenge. Programmes are centred around activities designed to improve transferable skills such as leadership, communication and teamwork.
Learning outside the classroom should above all else be F-U-N! We also believe in creating engaging, challenging and unforgettable experiences (mucky boots and smiling faces included). We provide a range of outdoor activities for school groups, Scouts, Guides, and Cadets, tailored to your group.

Want to please the youngsters, challenge the teens and keep the adults amused? Activities can be tailored to fit all skill levels, ages and abilities. Make it as fun or as adventurous as you want it to be, we’ll help you find the perfect fit and tick all the boxes!
