During the secondary school years, young people develop important relationships with each other and develop rapidly into young adults. With this in mind, My Expedition Rocks draws on significant experience working with the secondary school age in developing resilience amongst this age group, and working hard to ensure that they are building the right skills to exceed and contribute to school and life. There are so many activities available to support their learning and development, from more cognitive activities like:
To more physical activities requiring more significant involvement:
As a young person, we begin to understand that we are on a journey through life, and as such our activities can be tailored to emulate that journey based experience, whether this is over a day or several. We can arrange planned walks or canoe trips, with several aims encompassed within the journey. The overall aim to meet outcomes associated with their school work, or something more personal, i.e. self-esteem, confidence, resilience or self-regulation.
Please get in touch to discuss journey options, as these are arranged on a bespoke basis to meet your unique requirements.
We also offer the Wild Passport scheme, which provides a structure to bushcraft sessions, and is progressive and an easy to follow pathway for children and teachers alike. It can be started as early as 5 years old, with a progression over 5-6 years to become an expert outdoors person. It is split in to 5 different levels:
Each level has 25 learning outcomes associated with each, and within those learning outcomes many skills which support a young persons learning in the classroom as well. The programme requires regular participation, please get in touch to discuss a programme if this would be of interest to you and your school.
Activity days can be booked as individual days, or as progressive packages. This is all customisable during the booking process. We will discuss all your ideas and topics to be delivered, to ensure you are happy with the overall package.
