We want you and your group to have the very best residential experience and to achieve what you want: Maximising the learning and enjoyment and providing the right level of challenge.
Once your group has a course booked a Peat Rigg Course Director will be in touch with you to help you organise the residential and ask what you and your organisation want out of it.
We want to run a course that will meet your learning objectives. This could include National Curriculum objectives in line with
- Personal, social and health education
- Physical Education
- Extending opportunities
- Food Education
Or focusing on particular aspect of the Every Child Matters agenda (most of our courses contribute to all of these!)
- Promoting healthy choices
- Providing a safe environment
- Supporting enjoyment through learning
- Helping to develop young people socially & emotionally
- Promoting economic well being
We will design a course that will use a range of outdoor activities that are relevant to your group and help to achieve those aims.
Many of our courses start with a particular theme, and incorporate a variety of appropriate activities to make the course enjoyable and relevant.
For the best results it makes sense to ask exactly what you want: Your course may be the groups First Adventure together.
- Outdoor Adventure
- Health and Wellbeing using the Outdoor Environment
- Outdoor Adventure and Conservation incorporating the John Muir Award
