Benefits to Young People

At Lea Green we believe every child and young person should experience the outdoors as an integral part of their learning and development, complementing learning in the classroom. Our vision is to help schools and organisations create successful outdoor education courses that enables individuals to grow and develop for the future.

High quality outdoor education can stimulate and inspire, aid personal and social development, and can often motivate reluctant learners. We offer a range of activities and environments to open the eyes of children and young adults, to show them how they can learn outside the classroom and re-energise their appetite to learn.

Safety and Standards
The safety and welfare of young people and adults in our care is our primary concern at Lea Green. Whilst we can’t guarantee that accidents will never occur, we spend a large amount of time making sure our safety polices and risk assessments are of high quality to reduce the risk of accidents occurring.

It is important for young people to experience elements of risk in a managed way so that they can learn the skills that will help to keep them safe and enable them to develop into confident young adults. With our professionally qualified and highly experienced staff, alongside our safety measures, we can provide that experience, in a safe environment.
