What types of skills can my child gain from attending camp?

Outdoor adventure camps offer a unique blend of physical activity, social interaction, and exposure to nature. Children benefit from improved physical fitness, enhanced problem-solving skills, increased self-confidence, and a lifelong appreciation for the outdoors. 

An adventure camp provides a foundation for honing a variety of different skills. Children learn to become leaders, solve problems, enhance communication skills and strengthen their decision-making. Through activities like bushcraft, , climbing, and team-building exercises, children develop valuable life skills that extend beyond the adventures they’ll experience during camp.

Does PGL promote activities that enhance mental health and wellbeing?

Nothing helps to stimulate mental health and wellbeing more than the outdoors and lots of exercise! Swap the classroom for an otherworldly outdoor experience, to discover the excitement of bushcraft and our range of amazing activities that leave children truly awe-inspired. 

Outdoor adventures provide a break from screen time to help foster active minds, increase enthusiasm towards exercise and develop focus, which will have a long-lasting impact on the future endeavours of all children who attend camp.

Are the activities at outdoor adventure camps safe for children?

All of our activities are designed with children’s safety as our top priority. Dedicated PGL Activity Instructors lead all sessions and instruct children throughout each activity with carefully planned activities with adherence to our strict safety guidelines. 

We also have a list of risk assessments and activity descriptions available on the link here. Our staff are extensively trained in child safeguarding practices. A copy of our child safeguarding policy is available here.

Are there lots of opportunities for children to develop socially?

Our wide range of fascinating activities are designed to promote teamwork, enhance communication and allow for children to delve deeper out of their comfort zone. Children who attend camp can make new friends, develop social skills alongside their peers, and build new connections with children of the same age. 

All of our adventure camps are designed to provide children with a safe space to interact, communicate and make new bonds in an exciting, captivating environment.

Can outdoor adventure camps provide long-term benefits for a child’s development?

Children’s enthusiasm for outdoor activities can increase self-esteem, deepen their passion for the natural world and build resilience. The experiences provided by the opportunities at a PGL adventure camp can help children develop new perspectives on life and the world around them.
