Schools Programmes

school programmesAdventure Activities
A wide range of outdoor activities can be provided for anybody over the age of ten years. On the land there's Hillwalking, Orienteering, Rockclimbing, Abseiling, Obstacle Course and Petersburg Challenge. Our water based activities are Kayaking, Canoeing, Windsurfing, Sailing, Raft Building, Gorge Walking and Caving. All safety gear is provided. Adventure programmes can be combined with a residential experience. Click here to download activity list.

For primary schools all of our outdoor activities are on offer. Your school tour will begin at 10am and run until 5pm. Each child will participate in two outdoor activities while in Petersburg. The idea behind this would be that each individual will have plenty of time at each of their two outdoor activities. Generally children take part in one land and one water based activity and as opposed to ‘just having a go' kids participate in a quality learning experience. See gear to bring lists for what you might need on the day and if you have further queries don't hesitate to contact us.
