Schools and Activity Groups
The Ultimate Experience for Schools and Youth Groups
Get outside and explore nature’s playground, learning isn’t just for the classroom anymore!
Lost Earth Adventures firmly believes that educational experiences should be engaging, challenging and rooted in fun. To get outside enjoying the great British countryside and being physically and mentally challenged is nothing but essential to a young person’s development.
Starting from just a half day to multi-day adventures, our friendly, qualified and experienced team will help to take the hassle out of planning, so you can concentrate on having fun!
For example the curriculum states that: ‘A high-quality PE curriculum enables all pupils to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity.[…] As a result, they develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and learn about the value of healthy, active lifestyles. Discovering what they like to do, what their aptitudes are at school, and how and where to get involved in physical activity helps them make informed choices about lifelong physical activity.’ (Department of Education: 2013)
Some of the activities we provide are listed below. For more information click on the links or see the table at the bottom of this page:
- Rock Climbing is great for teaching students to look for ways to solve their own problems as they search for hand and footholds among the rocks

- Abseiling encourages students to overcome their fears as they descend

Reviews"Lost Earth Adventures put on a fantastic day for our Year 6 children. Their staff had a great rapport with the children, encouraging everyone to get involved, but at the same time maintaining high standards of professionalism & safety throughout. I highly recommend them to schools wanting their children to experience fantastic outdoor adventurous activities."

Treks can be as challenging as the participants want. We can provide treks to Everest Base Camp or the peaks and passes of various other mountains in the Himalaya. You will be staying in huts or under canvas. Read more about our adventures to Asia.
Our Asian Adventure and Volunteer programs are very rewarding and will make the children feel proud, knowing they are doing something good for a lesser advantaged community. It will teach them to be resourceful and increase their confidence no end.
