Innovative and professionally run outdoor adventure programmes
Outdoor Academy is a contemporary, independent outdoor pursuits provider based on the grounds of Ufton Court in Berkshire. With guidance from our team of professional instructors, you could embark on the outdoors like never before . . .
Our strengths lie in creating specialised programmes centred on individual and group requirements. Our staff team draw upon a wealth of experience to devise and run engaging activities that achieve an important end goal. We are happy to work independently or alternatively, in partnership with your organisation.
Our diverse range of outdoor programmes cater for all abilities and our flexible approach to work means we are on hand whenever you need us. We co-ordinate a wide range of activities for corporate events, stag and hen parties, primary and secondary schools, colleges and youth groups, birthday celebrations, families and even one on one intensive coaching. If one fun-filled day doesn't suffice, why not try an Outdoor Academy activity holiday or residential package designed to suit your needs?
Working with young people
We pride ourselves on our affiliation with young people, and strive to become the leading force in youth development by offering alternative curriculum and social projects in the outdoors. Our work to date has proven that our dedicated team can achieve desired outcomes in a safe, stimulating environment.
All of our activity sessions are run by approachable, experienced
staff whose utmost concern is to make your day a safe, fun and unforgettable one! There are no hidden charges- our prices are inclusive of all specialist equipment (even waterproofs!).
