During this year’s Education Show, Rock UK Adventure Centres are offering schools a chance to put them to the test for free by bringing a class of students to one of their outdoor adventure centres for a free day of activities with lunch.
On a Rock UK residential or day visit, children get out of their comfort zones doing something new and challenging, often trying many of the 40 plus adventure activities available for the first time. Activities such as, archery, canoeing, fencing, and abseiling, help children overcome their fears, build confidence and gives them a sense of achievement.
Spending time away from home and school, working as a team and overcoming challenges together, helps children understand their own capabilities and builds better relationships with peers and teachers back in the classroom. It equips them with valuable life skills, boosts self-esteem and enables them to create a brighter future for themselves. Rock UK offers tailor-made activity programmes to suit all budget and their bursary fund means no child needs to miss out on their school trip.
Richard Sewell Centre Director of Frontier Centre said, “The heart our instructor have for the children is to see them overcome fears and grow in confidence. We want schools to try us for free so that they can see for themselves the benefits of taking their class away to one of our centres, and teachers can experience the positive impact and change it has.”
The free activity day, which is available for a class of up to 32 children, is available to any school that has either never visited a Rock UK Centre before or has not been within the last four years.
If you want to know more about this offer and Rock UK, come and see them on Stand H94 at the show and they’ll be happy to talk you through what you can expect from your visit.
About Rock UK
Rock UK is a Christian charity that runs four LOtC Quality Badged outdoor adventure activity centres across the UK. It started in 1922, when a group of Sunday school teachers from London took their schoolchildren, who had never had a holiday, out of the city to the South coast for a healthy and adventurous time.
Today Rock UK employs over a hundred staff and volunteers, and welcomes over 50,000 visitors to their centres as day and residential visitors, schools, youth groups, uniformed groups, community groups, corporate groups, all faith groups and other organisations such as the Prince’s Trust.
