We Are Adventurers is on a mission to help children connect with the natural world through outdoor activities for kids packed full of adventure. Working across Manchester, the team provides an extensive range of outdoor education opportunities and forest school programmes that allow children to explore the great outdoors, learn new skills and increase confidence through personal challenges.

From holiday clubs to birthday parties and KS1/KS2 school educational programmes to nursery and toddler sessions. We believe that every child can benefit emotionally, intellectually and physically with time spent in the great outdoors.

Looking for a big adventure? Here at We Are Adventurers we also support corporate adventure days, and team building events for adults.


Our adventure led outdoor activities for kids focus on helping children develop core life skills including resilience, communication skills and how to assess risk.

Climbing, archery, campfire cooking and nature learning plus so many more adventure based activities for children aged 5 – 11.

SAS survival skills, Teddy Bears picnic, Fairy Forest, Robin Hood and more. Two hour long outdoor adventure parties for large groups hosted in woodlands in Chorlton, Trafford Ecology Park and on private grounds.

Every year, we engage ten thousand children from nurseries and schools across Manchester in our tailored adventure programme. From EYFS through to KS3, on school grounds, in a nearby park, or at our base at Trafford Ecology Park.

“The kids have been going to Adventurers since the beginning – they’ve grown up in the movement really. We’ve booked birthday parties and holiday club spaces and even some archery workshops as a reward for the footie team at the end of season. Now my eldest has come back to develop leadership skills as a young leader. I can’t thank Paul and the team enough for how they’ve been there for the kids over the years. They’ve learnt so much about the natural world but even more about themselves.”

John, father of three


Our mission is to get children and grown ups to engage in learning about the natural world through adventure.

We work with more than 10,000 children every year to deliver our extensive programme through in school teaching, after school clubs and holiday clubs.
