Residentials and Activity Days for Schools with Rock and Rapid
We are always very excited when those of school age join us for an adventure. To see the determination, thrill, adrenaline and challenges in children on our trips is what makes our job worthwhile. We strive for everyone to thoroughly enjoy their time with us and our aim is to provide an experience of a lifetime. A school trip with us will be like nothing you have experienced before.
In the UK we have many different packages for school children to stay with us for their residential. This is a favourable choice for those in their last year of primary education as a last chance saloon to run free and embrace all the fun of being a child before entering ‘big’ schools. We have structured days of pure fun from start to finish where children can partake in a variety of outdoor activities such as kayaking, climbing, abseiling and learn many skills such as raft building and campfire cooking. We offer adventures for school groups from Year 3 - 13.
We have designed our activities so that children of all ability levels can partake, with the emphasis being on co-operation, support and trust between peers. We find that the activity that can be the most daunting for the youngsters joining us can be Abseiling; it is a real opportunity for people to push themselves well out of their comfort zones and really achieve. The Raft Building exercises are extremely popular as challenges are set which are fun to complete and teach children vital skills such as working as part of a team, and working under pressure.
For those wanting a one-day adventure, we do that too! Choose from a large variety of activities such as canoeing, paddle boarding and unlimited rope fun and opt to stay with us for a full day or a half day, the choice is always yours.
Overseas expeditions for schools
At Rock and Rapid we have an Overseas Expeditions suitable for every school. We plan our school team expeditions to enrich the lives of every person about with amazing opportunities for personal development and character building. We are full of support and encouragement each step of the way to bring each child's potential to their fullest. Our overseas expeditions can last from 10 days up to four weeks and as with all of our services we can tailor design your school trip to suit your preferences, matching your wants with our experience to come up with a truly amazing experience for the children in your care.
Our overseas expeditions are designed with expert care, we use our personal experience to come up with a range of personal challenges and achievements for the children, such as - Trekking: This is where we bring children way out of their comfort zones and with expert support we bring them to their full potential both physically and psychologically as well as showing them sights they would otherwise never see such as the view from the top of Kilimanjaro. Our trekking experiences are sure to produce memories that will last a lifetime! We know that children love adventure and so we plan excursions to places such as Morocco for white water rafting or Gozo where the scuba diving experience is like no other.
We also want to provide education during your time with us and we do this by showing children, first hand, about different cultures and allowing the children to be as hands on as they wish by helping in different communities and meeting the local children. We’ve been a part of some truly amazing projects such as our time helping in a Kenyan orphanage.
After such an exhilarating and exciting time with us we leave the last few days fairly free and this gives time for reflection on your personal challenges, the sights you have seen and the new you that you will almost definitely feel. It is also a time for children to unwind and relax a little before heading back home full of a new lease for life and new love of the world.
