LEARNING OUTSIDE OF THE CLASSROOM

Nothing inspires and engages kids more than a school trip outside the classroom. At Challenge Academy we provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to experience outdoor adventurous activities, learn and develop a range of life skills and get to know each other,  whilst having fun and adventure in the great outdoors. We work closely with schools to develop a tailored programme for the day to meet their specific needs.

    "

    The instructors are amazing and so encouraging when you have those occasional ‘I can’t do this’ moments! There are lots of them which means their organisation is second to none, safety is paramount and all this for a fantastically great value price! I didn’t know this place existed but I’ll be spreading the word, Thank you Challenge Academy!

    CA provided a day’s training for my team of Tutors and partners for Facilitator Training in Team Development skills. We had an amazing day - incredibly productive, creative and got the results! Even individuals lacking in some confidence and not as willing as others to get involved, engaged and got a huge amount from the training. We had great fun! If you’re willing to try something a little different, I can really recommend this kit and training - FANTASTIC!” Rachel Clarke – Manager Derby Adult Learning Services
