Essex County Councils Outdoor Education Service delivers a range of high quality outdoor learning programmes at centres across Essex, and beyond. In particular, Essex Outdoors provides outdoor learning opportunities to young people. Essex Outdoors believe passionately in the power of outdoor education. Taking the classroom outdoors can broaden horizons, promote positive values, and develop confidence and self-esteem. Outdoor learning can also raise social and environmental awareness. Essex Outdoors centres deliver many different courses ranging from outdoor learning programmes and environmental education through to adventurous activity courses.
Participants who have been involved with outdoor learning are often exhilarated by the experience of achieving their goals and having successfully worked outside of their comfort zone. This provides them with the confidence to tackle uncertainty and challenges elsewhere in their personal, school and working lives, thereby realising more of their potential. In short, outdoor learning works!
Essex Outdoors is committed to delivering high quality outdoor learning opportunities to the young people of Essex and the wider community.
