Journey Based Programmes
Outdoor Learning and Adventure
Our Journey Based Residential Programmes for School and Youth groups are run over several days and can include overnight camping or staying in huts or bothys, these kind of expeditions encourage team work, leadership and resilience.
Adelong specialises in delivering Journey Based Outdoor Learning programmes and expeditions with school and youth groups in Devon and across the UK. Our programmes are designed to fit our clients needs in terms of outcomes, time of year, duration and budget. This type of activity can either be land or water based or a combination of the two such as “summit to sea”.
The significance of nature and our place within the natural world is central to our philosophy, through a journey based progamme there is greater opportunity to facilitate positive outcomes with young people. We take everything we need with us to avoid having to use shops or facilities; by doing this we remain as independent as possible throughout the programme to minimise intrusion into group dynamics and maximise the ’emersion into nature’ experience.
Participants do not need to have prior experience before the programme, expedition training is part of the package and the participants will learn navigation, campcraft and paddlesport/ backpacking skills during the expedition. Journey based programmes are designed to engage young people and encourage participation throughout as well as encompassing any desired learning outcomes and curriculum areas specified.
