From reward activities on site at your school, to motivational trips and activities that you can tie in to the curriculum at various locations across North Yorkshire and the Lake District. We cater for any organisation that works with young people.

“Just completed a two day navigation course with Alfresco adventures. Enjoyed every minute and learnt so much and can't wait to put it all in to practice. Even learnt about different types of heather and plants on the hills and local history. Can't wait to come back and do a night time navigation course soon!”

Very happy with everything over the 2 days course and would recommend Alfresco Adventures to anyone.”
