Bespoke outdoor adventure itinerary

At Cumulus Outdoors we pride ourself in crafting bespoke itineraries that meet the needs of each individual school or youth group that visits our Residential Centre. We will work with you to design a programme of activities that meets your requirements, depending on your budget, planned duration and desired learning outcomes.

Our sample itinerary gives you an insight into a typical day at the Cumulus Outdoors Residential Centre. As you’ll see, as well as enabling the students to take responsibility at certain times, it also allows plenty of time for your chosen exciting adventure activities or excursions as well as scheduled time to relax and socialise.

Customise Your Trip

Our residential programmes are designed to meet your required outcomes while satisfying your choice of outdoor adventure activities/ field studies and budget. Our purpose-built centre provides facilities to ensure you have all you need for a great residential experience. The centre has three dormitories, each with their own recreational area, which are assigned based on your group number. Teachers are supplied with a rooming list to assist with your organisation of participants. Your group is then allocated your own team leader who will be linked to your group throughout your stay. A staff member will be available on-site 24/7 for any additional needs that may arise.

We offer various durations for trips, and prices are inclusive of accommodation, washing facilities and food (full board). Our tasty and nutritious menu is cooked on-site by our in-house chef with food options consisting of breakfast (a hot option with fruit and cereal), a packed lunch and a two course evening meal. Evening activities are available at no additional cost. Staff teachers are included free of charge based on a ratio of one staff member to every 10 participants. Generally, our trips are designed to include two daytime activities (AM and PM) and one evening activity. All of our activity prices are inclusive of transport to and from the venue (please let us know if you have your own transport). However, our flexible ‘customise your package’ option allows you to select as many (or as few) activities as you so require.
