  • Multi-Activity Trips for schools

Through adventure we inspire

There’s more than one way to deliver a transformational experience on a PGL Multi-Activity course.

For young people it’s about digging deep, finding the courage to jump, to climb, to take a step into the unknown. 
It’s learning to give and receive support, strengthen friendships, grow.

In the freedom of the outdoors, your students can be more than they are inside the classroom.

Through the series of adventure challenges we'll give them, they'll work together to experience success as part of a team, improving their self-confidence and faith in their own abilities.

Watch them rise to the challenge that each activity presents, discover new skills, and have the time of their lives in the process!

They’ll leave with memories of a trip that made a difference - the difference that helped develop engaged, motivated students, eager to learn.

Activities

We have a huge range of activities on land and water for you to choose from. And we design a flexible programme to meet the specific needs of your group.

Each day is packed with adventure to excite, inspire and build confidence, bringing a different dimension to the learning experience.

There are four, one-and-a-half hour sessions each full day with different activities to keep everyone engaged. Watch your high fliers on the zip wire, see who braves the trapeze, or help your students build a raft to race across the lake.

And after your action-packed day, there’s even more to come.

We’ll create and run a tailored evening programme to round off their day.

Whether it’s ‘ambush’, ‘wacky races’ or ‘casino night’, our unmissable evening ‘ents’ are guaranteed to keep you and your students busy and entertained.
