A multi-week programme allows a class to work together over a period of 4 or more sessions, developing a range of skills. We offer a reduced price for booking multiple sessions, meaning this programme can be extremely economical to run.

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.
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).
