Our Ethos

Our EthosThe natural environment is the most inspiring place for children, young people and adults to learn about their world.

The opportunity to experience this fantastic natural resource right on our doorsteps is one of the greatest gifts we can give. It is a well-known fact that a walk in the woods or along the coast can benefit us in so many ways, physically, mentally and spiritually.

Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit.

Edward Abbey

We hope that through the programmes we offer, participating children, teenagers and vulnerable adults will be able to develop a deeper confidence in themselves and their decision making as well as their creative and practical abilities.

We hope that they will start to feel a sense of pride and privilege for the places in which they live, recognising the magnificence of the natural environment around them and all that it has to offer.

We hope that by offering the opportunity for a positive experience of the outdoors, our participants will continue to use and care for this great resource throughout their lives.
