The Ultimate Experience for Schools and Youth Groups

Outside EducationGet 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.

School-Group-Outdoor-Education
Introducing children, young adults, students and youth groups to outdoor adventures at a young age has long-term benefits, but will also have an immediate and positive effect in the classroom, at home and on the playing field. Problem solving, communication, teamwork, trust and self-reliance are just some of the skills that evolve from outdoor education.
We provide a range of outdoor activities for school groups, Scouts, Guides, and Cadets which can be tailored to your group.

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!

Outdoor Education

For schools, the activities can be developed in order to focus on specific parts of the curriculum at different Key Stages.

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)

Outdoor Activities

Outdoor pursuits center Yorkshire
The outdoor activities provided by Lost Earth Adventures are ideal for showing students, and other youngsters, an alternative exercise that they can participate in. Outdoor activities are also great for improving the confidence of your charges. During the activities we run, our focus is on team building skills and encouraging everyone to take part so they feel important to the outcome of each challenge.
As students become more confident we like to give them responsibility for different aspects of the activity, passing our knowledge on to them and giving them a sense of pride and accomplishment. Most importantly we focus on fun and making sure the whole group is having a good time.

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
  • Caving helps students work together as a team as well as being an awesome confidence builder. Never failing to bring even the most anxious student an amazing sense of wellbeing whilst learning the geology of the underworld.
  • Abseiling encourages students to overcome their fears as they descend

Pricing Information
All of these prices are based on an Adult from your school or youth group being present. The Adult is welcome to take part complimentary in the activity. If there is no Adult present then we will have to increase our staffing levels to deal with the group management. The increase in price will depend on what exactly we will be doing and how many children will be participating.
