Adventurous School Trip Ideas in the Forest

At We Are Adventurers, we offer a school trip experience at Trafford Ecology Park, an 11 acre nature reserve where we’ve built our adventure base or – if budgets are tight – we can bring a school trip experience to your school grounds. Our school trip experience can last a half day or a full day.

Children arrive by coach/car (arranged by the school) and are greeted by our lead adventurer who will take them into the woods for a safety briefing. Themed school trip ideas for younger children could be centred around the fairy forest or a teddy bears picnic, for older children it could be Robin Hood, Harry Potter or survival skills.

Everybody brings a packed lunch, but older children will be able to try their hand at cooking sausages and making damper bread, while younger children will be able to toast chocolate brioche.There is plenty of den building and game playing and every session ends with a campfire and toasted marshmallows.

Trust us to deliver the best school trip

Our school trips are tailor made programmes of activity to best suit the needs of the class. The school trip can be linked to a curriculum based topic e.g how to make early tools used in the Stone Age or how to make your own sword and shield for the Romans.

The site and the activities are all fully risk assessed and our team, made up of qualified teachers, outdoor instructors and forest school leaders, are keen to share their passion for adventure.
