Learning through


At Scout Adventures Fordell Firs, we’re passionate about what young people can achieve in the outdoors so we are committed to offering flexible, affordable outdoor residentials for schools.

From activity days to full-week residentials, we are happy to tailor our packages to your needs. Just give us a call to tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll be happy to help.

Residential experiences, like the ones offered at Fordell, allow our pupils to develop a wide range of skills in a challenging but supportive, natural environment together with their peers.

Short school residentials

Our shorter one or two-night residentials are perfect for schools based nearby who wish to introduce outdoor adventure to young people, without the added cost or time commitment of a longer stay. Shorter residentials are also popular with younger classes looking to prepare for a longer outdoor learning adventure in the future.

Get in touch with us to make a booking enquiry.

Starting at £45 (+VAT) per head, our short residentials include:

One night's accommodation in our cosy dormitories (we also offer camping for a more adventurous and affordable option!).

Four activity sessions carried out over two days. 

Minibus collection and drop-offs for local schools, subject to availability.

Catering, which can be organised for an extra charge. 

Winter residentials

Winter may not be the most obvious season to take part in a residential, but there are many benefits to going away with your class at this time of year. Taking part in a residential earlier in the academic year will give you more opportunity to apply all the positive outcomes of your outdoor learning experience to your classroom teaching, and the prices are more budget friendly too.

Our winter residential packages are available from 1 December to 28 February.

Our winter packages

£35 (+VAT) per person for a one-night stay and two days (four activities)

£80 (+VAT) per person for a two-night stay and three days (6-8 activities)


Training and Team Building

We also offer survival skills activity days for teachers who’d like to develop their own outdoor learning skills. Prices start from £15.50 per person for a three-hour survival skills session. You can do this at our centre, or we can come to your school to deliver this too. Just get in touch if you’re interested.
