Enhanced Learning With Outdoor Activities
For School Age Children In Cumbria

Arrange a wide range of outdoor activities for school age children. Bring your class to us at Talkin Adventures, OR we can bring the Adventure to your school for an action packed day. Contact us now for a digital copy of our Schools Activity Brochure.

We are ever adapting to the Coronavirus guidelines and your safety and that of our team are our top priority. We have our own risk assessments and will comply with your school's policies to keep everybody as safe as possible. School day visits and activities can still happen and we are keen to stop your pupils missing out on valuable experiences!

Created around your desired learning outcomes and goals, each activity package is bespoke. Let's have a chat about your hopes for your event and we will tailor an itinerary around your needs. Our outdoor adventure and team building activities are suitable for ages 8+, great for years 5/6 through to college students. Top picks for school groups are Archery, Canoeing, Kayaking, Raft Building, Orienteering and The Treasure Chest. Take a look at our activity listing here. Our land based activities can even be brought to your school.

We are AALA accredited, all of our activities are fully risk assessed and each one of our friendly, experienced staff hold an enhanced DBS check.

Adventure experiences with us range from school activity days with an emphasis on learning outside the classroom. These activities are lots of fun and highly engaging, meaning that they also work well for youth group events, birthday party activities, holiday clubs and day camps at our Cumbria venue or in your school grounds.

Ideas For School Activities in the Cumbrian Environment

We all know the importance of physical activity in schools, but sometimes it can be a challenge to get all children to fully engage with sports during school hours. The benefits of outdoor activity transfer to focus and achievement within the classroom. Combining the wonder of nature and the outdoor learning with physical and mental activity is key in the success of social and emotional development activities for school age children.

Why not combine physical activity with learning outside the classroom to create the ultimate engaging and fun leadership activities for high school students and primary school students alike? Archery and team building challenges can work brilliantly on your very own school field. Alternatively, bring your pupils for a day on the water at our activity centre base at Talkin Adventures, Talkin Tarn Country Park, Brampton, it’s only a stone’s throw from Carlisle in northern Cumbria.

The National Curriculum requires that all students should ‘take part in adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team’, as part of the physical education syllabus. We can both tick that box and surpass the requirements by providing a fulfilling and exciting activity day with little to no organisation and work by you. Of course, we actively promote your participation in your adventure activities, as shared experiences promote and help to consolidate valuable relationships between teacher and pupil.

If you are looking for ideas for school activities then please do get in touch. We will be pleased to send you our package outlines.

Outdoor Activities & Camps For Families And Younger Groups

In addition to school activities, we provide a range of adventure experiences for families to enjoy. During the school holidays our adventure day camps provide the ideal opportunity for kids to blow off some steam and spend time in the outdoors, away from screens and other distractions. Our day camps are a non-residential “summer camp”, or “holiday club”, providing an “outward bound-like” experience and a break for parents during the school holidays. Please do take a look at our Adventure Day Camp listings and tell your pupils and parents about this opportunity.
