Voluntary youth organisations and youth groups
The outdoors is a great place to be at any age. When you are young it is a fantastic place to learn more about yourself.
We have worked with hundreds of different voluntary youth organisations and youth clubs to achieve a variety of different aims. Together we've broadened the horizons of thousands of young people and achieved positive personal development.
What could time in the outdoors do for you?
Bespoke Outdoor Experience Programmes
So, you are taking the your group into the outdoors. That's brilliant! No matter what you have in mind, we have got everything you need to make your outdoor experience engaging, developmental, exhilarating and fun!
Defining the aim of your group's visit is very important. As their leader we work with you to specify their learning outcomes you wish them to achieve during their visit. These could include:
- setting goals
- broaden horizons
- self awareness
A residential stay offers a whole new dimension to a young person's outdoor experience.
Sometimes, a residential trip is the first time many young people have stayed away from home. Otherwise, it's a great opportunity to feel independent and enjoy time with their friends, creating lasting memories.
Benefits of a residential
Residentials have been shown to promote various benefits for young people in terms of personal development, such as:
- a greater sense of independence
- personal confidence
- improved interpersonal skills
- a greater sense of personal responsibility and time-keeping
- personal care and hygiene
And what could be more fun than living in the outdoors and spending quality time with your friends?
SOLD are able to offer a variety of residential options including teepees, yurts, log cabins and camping (using own tents). Visit our 'Facilities' page to see what our centres have to offer you and your groups.
This winter, we are offering brilliant, fully inclusive residential packages that will get your young people out of the classroom and into the outdoors. A comprehensive outdoor learning programme will keep them exhilarated during the day. In the evenings they will enjoy a warm and toasty stay in our deluxe log cabins, whilst enjoying home-cooked meals and as much hot chocolate as they can drink!
3 days/2 nights for £114* per student
Residential trips are a wonderful opportunity for personal development, inspiring improved confidence, interpersonal skills and a better dynamic between students and teachers.
Woodland Residentials take place at High Ashurst, which is a majestic 56-acre site nestled in the heart of the Surrey Hills. With direct access to Headley Heath, this is an idyllic setting in which to learn and develop.
