Welcome to High Adventure

We're a premier outdoor education provider based on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, owned by former teachers, providing over 20 years of exemplary service to primary & secondary schools, groups & families.

Our professional and dedicated team are here to help you get the most from your visit and we’re proud to offer bespoke primary & secondary school trips, tailored to meet your school’s objectives.


The magnificent Yorkshire Dales provide us with a wealth of world class venues for our off-site activities like caving and watersports. While most clients will combine on-site and off-site activities our excellent on-site facilities mean you could enjoy your entire trip at our centre.


We also have an Adventure camp in Lancashire available from May-July each year & organise Multi-Activity Holiday Clubs, Adventure Parties, Cycling events and more! 

"Another amazing residential week for 33 year 6 pupils. Full of adventure, challenge and fun. The food was great and they catered very well for all our different dietary requirements. The instructors were friendly, patient and helped pupils reach their personal goals so well. It was lovely to have the pupils and supporting staff so well looked after. Thank you to all the High Adventure staff who helped make this visit so special". 

Angie Henderson; Lindhead School.

Outdoor Education
at its finest

Made by teachers, for teachers. High Adventure is owned & run by former teachers, our school trips have been carefully designed to offer a high quality experience and our 90% re-book rate reflects this.


As a small & friendly centre, we're able to provide a personal service ensuring that school groups have bespoke programmes, a designated Group Leader, excellent pre-travel support, home-cooked meals, bedding & waterproofs provided and comfortable indoor accommodation that offers a home from home.  

Outdoor Education at its finest.


"Following many years of becoming increasingly disillusioned with residential centres who seemingly wanted nothing more than our money, we feel we have struck gold in High Adventure.  From the point of declaring our initial interest, right through until our departure, High Adventure made everything simple. All activities are within close proximity to the hub of the centre meaning time isn’t lost or wasted moving between activities. The activity plan is tailored to meet our wants and needs rather than having to fit in with the centre’s limitations and restrictions. We are very much looking forward to returning again in the next couple of months. Highly, highly, highly recommended!"

Jon, Burton Joyce Primary School


You can book your school residential trip with us in absolute confidence because we only ask for a small upfront deposit before your trip and then you don’t pay us anything until AFTER your trip. This gives you complete peace of mind. We also have Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge & AALA License and our staff are all DBS Checked.

Quality Instruction

We're proud to recruit and train the best instructors to ensure our activity programmes are engaging, motivating and fun. Our bespoke activity programmes enable you to design & influence your own activity programme in advance to suit your pupils. This means you'll know what you'll be doing well ahead of your trip. 


With highly qualified staff, we can deliver both on & off-site activities with opportunities for your group to enjoy real outdoor activities on crags, reservoirs and caves (mini-buses included) if you wish. Or, you can make the most of our extensive on-site activities with plenty of rainy day activities & waterproofs available (not that it ever rains in Yorkshire of course!)

KS2 Experts

Our Small & Friendly Centre offers the ideal environment for Primary Schools and we pride ourselves on offering younger groups a friendly space to enjoy outdoor education with activities that engage, inspire and enthuse young pupils. 


Going away from home can be particularly daunting for younger pupils which is why we make sure you receive a warm welcome and an itinerary packed with fun. High Adventure is a smaller centre, offering a safe & relaxed environment with exceptional staff, a great selection of activities and cosy rooms, many of which have en-suite facilities or toilets very nearby. We offer exclusive accommodation to primary schools so you're never with older pupils which makes the High Adventure experience relaxed, enjoyable and a lot of fun!
