Getting young people back to nature
Wilderness Academy provides an authentic outdoor camping and adventure experience, immersing young people in all the benefits that nature has to offer.
We aim to inspire primary and secondary aged pupils through a range of outdoor activities designed to ignite curiosity and spark adventure.
Through environmental and adventurous learning activities, based in the heart of the Staffordshire Moorlands, pupils will find a way to ‘reset’ themselves spending time away from modern confinements.
We have four programmes designed to fit around your school and the needs of your pupils. Ranging from adventure days to 5-day camp residentials our programmes maximise excitement, learning, personal development and fun, resulting in a truly magical outdoor experience.
Wilderness Academy 5-day Camp Residential
An extended, full-on adventure experience, with a range of adventurous outdoor activities split over 5-days. Activities can include rock climbing, weaselling, water sports, day expeditions and bushcraft.
Wilderness Academy 3-day Camp Residential
An exciting blend of adventure and environmental themed learning, with a mixture of both bushcraft and traditional outdoor activities. Evenings can be spent sat around the campfire, sharing stories under the stars.
Wilderness Base Camp
Base camp allows pupils to experience a night under the stars in the familiar surroundings of their school grounds. Pupils will take part in a range of exciting outdoor activities from bushcraft to a mini-expedition giving them the chance to develop their confidence, learn new skills and help them take further steps towards a life of exploration and adventure.
