About us

Our ethos

We believe that the outdoors is the place to make unique discoveries.

Surrey Outdoor Learning & Development is committed to achieving positive personal development through outdoor experiences that challenge the mind and body. Through these outdoor experiences, we guide participants to discover more about themselves by learning and developing personal, social, emotional, physical and key skills

We treat each person we work with as an individual with his or her own unique core strengths and limitations. Together, we work to achieve the best each person is capable of, whether this be newfound self-esteem, the ability to communicate effectively with friends or strangers, or the completion of a strenuous uphill hike.

Self-evaluation and the recognition of achievement are the two fundamental principles behind our work. Participants must assess their own capabilities in order to perform. Ultimately, learning and development will then occur when an individual chooses to fulfil these capabilities through action and is able to recognise their actions as a new and remarkable personal achievement.
