Kench Hill offers a wide range of exciting and inspirational outdoor activity based day visits for local schools, home school groups and community group day visits. All activities are linked to the National curriculum and are taught with a cross-curricular learner led approach. On booking, a member of our tutor team will arrange a meeting with your class teacher or group leader to plan the day’s activity timetable, identify learning intentions and build a bespoke activity timetable tailored to your group’s objectives and needs.
Activities on offer include:
- Kitchen garden and healthy eating
- Shelter-building & Bushcraft
- Mad about Minibeasts
- Animal adaptations
- Sustainability and Recycling
- Orienteering (KS1/2)
- Environmental art
- Team games and problem solving
- Local adventure ramble through farmland, fields, woodland and stream!
- Meet the animals (Ponies, chickens, guinea pigs)
- Rocks and soils
- WW2 day
- Anglo-Saxon Day
- Circus skills
If needed the Centre can provide minibus shuttles to and from school at a small charge.
Day trips are from 9.30am-14:30pm and include a half hour lunch break. The cost will be bespoke for each booking depending on the group size, number of activities and tutors needed. For example, for a class of 32 the cost will be £150 with 1 tutor for the day, or if the class were to split for smaller group activities and need 2 tutors this will be £275 for the day.
All of the Kench Hill tutors are passionate about earning through nature and have a background in teaching and environmental education. All staff hold current DBS and first aid certificates.
