Bringing the fun to you:
Adventure activities at schools in Cumbria and beyond
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!
Bring the adventure into your own school with Independent Adventure Ltd. Our mobile activities promote physical activity in primary schools, secondary schools and colleges, providing a natural platform for children to improve their interpersonal communication, cooperation, confidence and a host of key skills.

Our instructors have a wealth of experience in delivering fun activities for middle school aged children ranging to fun leadership activities for high school students.
By having us at your school, your time, effort and budget are saved and you are able to fill the day with valuable activities, rather than travelling. We do our best to fit around your school timetable, minimising disruption to your routine. Our instructors aim to have all activities in place and ready to go by the time registration is over, maximising your activity time to end just in time for a short review before the home time bell.
Suited to your own individual school
Our activities are suited to school playing fields, with some of them able to be organised in a school hall. If you don’t have access to a suitable outdoor space then we are happy to liaise with your local authority to arrange our activities at a park or green space nearby. Our close links with Carlisle City Council mean that we are able to provide activities at Hammond’s Pond and other locations across the city.
Remember that you are always welcome to bring your group to our base at Talkin Adventures, Talkin Tarn Country Park for a wider range of activities & water sports.
Bespoke enrichment activities for kids near Carlisle, Cumbria
Every school is different and the desired outcomes from outdoor education, although similar, are unique to you. Some schools book our activities to add to their adventure sports week towards the end of term, whilst for others, our visit will really help teachers to mould their class for the year ahead. Build on your outdoor experiences and learning activity with us to help with your lesson plans. Our instructors will be fully aware of your desired outcomes and will liaise with you during the day to ensure that you are pleased with the progression of your event.
Each of our enrichment activities for kids will be adapted in line with your needs. For example, a fun archery session may have a greater emphasis on numeracy through keeping score in friendly competitions, or supporting others through team games and peer review. Our problem solving activities will be selected with your goals in mind, bringing a competitive edge to aid teamwork, or including a time management element to help engage the group.
All of our instructors have an enhanced DBS check.
