SSG’s Active Adventure Residential Camps are specifically designed to offer a back to basics rustic residential experience that allows schools to bring groups closer to nature and the outdoors in a cost effective and authentic residential experience that is tailor made for Key Stage 2/3 year groups.
Many residential camp options are based around high level individual activities that come with top end pricing structures and lack authenticity in relation to the overall residential experience. These activities are also often unattainable or accessible for younger age groups looking for an option for their first experience away from home.
SSG’s fantastic Active Adventure Residential Camp’s provide groups with the opportunity to experience a combination of stunning natural countryside camping together with rustic traditional adventurous activities, all delivered by experienced and highly motivated staffing team. Most importantly we work directly with your school to ensure that the residential experience is specifically tailored to your own requirements meaning you get ownership over the key aspects:
Choose your own activity options to best suit your groups age, target outcome and demographic
All camp customers are able to build their own residential from the ground up by selecting from a range of day activity options depending on the length of stay and the specific outcomes that you as a school wish to extract from the camp. An experienced manager will support you in choosing your options to ensure you have full understanding of options during a free of charge needs analysis meeting.
Team Building – these are your more traditional activities that are done in the outdoors where the group work around a number of different team building activities, which challenge a range of skills. Example Activities include:
Bushcraft – think wild survival in woodland, activities include:
Team Challenges – these are a mix of team building and more funky activities where the teams compete against each other. We have designed most of these ourselves and are all a bit different, activities included are:
Outdoor Adventure Activities – these are your more traditional outdoor activities, some can be very physically and mentally challenge but tend to be excellent headliners for events.
PRE SET ACTIVITY DAYS (unique to SSG Activities):
Groups are provided their own camping village with a specifically designated teachers tent/s as well as staff access to a centralised facility tent offering round the clock access to kitchen facilities, teas and coffees and a few home comforts.
Each visiting school will have an exclusive experience with us not having to share activities with other schools and will have a designated staffing team. (Note there may be other schools on site)
Our staff are key to the experience and each schools groups will be pre allocated (by the school) into working tribes and each tribe will work with a specific tribe leading team member who has a focus on building relations, trust and understanding of their tribe to ensure that each member of the tribe feels welcomed, important and at home with us at SSG Activities.
We also understand that communication with parents and guardians is essential and as such with all residential camps booked we offer a free of charge parent and student evening presentation at the school ahead of camp to provide information and offer opportunity for Q&A.
Upon booking schools will be allocated a specific Schools Account Coordinator who will look after the school in the build up to camp, we provide staff with a step by step survival guide including all of the relevant paperwork and actions required to organise your trip from a staffs perspective ensuring your build up to camp is as smooth a process as possible.
Thank you for the opportunity of a lifetime, teaching us to live in the wild. I really enjoyed the time and memories I had.
Thank you for making our residential experience very fun and memorable.
I had a fantastic time!
The residential was the "funnest" 3 days of my life
The residential was amazing because the activities were fun. It was a massive experience for me and the other children. I challenged myself to do the things I had never done before.
I had the time of my life sleeping in a tent with friends and the activities.
The residential was fun and I would really like to go again next year.
Thank you for being kind and helpful towards me and for being a kind leader. My group all said that you were kind and I would like to say thank you again for an amazing 3 days.
