Half Day

A “half day” session with Moving Mountains allows enough time to briefly teach one or two skills, or to focus more carefully on one individual skill.

Booking a half day session is great value for money. The programme for the session can be customised for your own requirements, incorporating any of our outdoor skills

Booking Requirements

Venue

We can bring our half day programmes out to your school (or other venue of your choice). We will discuss with you prior to the event to ensure that the facilities at the school are suitable for the activities that you have selected.

Alternatively, we can run any of our activities at our Basecamp Venue at no extra cost.

Supervision

For all sessions, we ask that the School provide members of school staff who are familiar with the students, to the following ratios:

  • Primary: 1 adult to every 15 students
  • Secondary: 1 adult to every 20 students

Where there are students who have additional needs, schools should consider whether it may be necessary to provide additional staff supervision (please see our inclusivity policy).
