Welcome to High Adventure
We're a premier outdoor education provider in 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 specialise in Primary School Adventure trips, with exclusive KS2 indoor accommodation, nurturing staff, rainy day facilities & waterproof kit, on-site, fast paced activities and water sports available.
Our bespoke secondary school adventure trips give older pupils an excellent combination of on & off-site activities with access to real crags, water sports and proper caving as well as quality GCSE PE courses.
Our facilities are excellent for uniform or adult groups seeking an adrenaline fuelled outdoor adventure. With on & offsite activities that combine land & water, our quality activities won't fail to impress.
Our high quality GCSE PE programmes offer teachers & pupils a comprehensive programme that achieves excellent results.
Stand out from the crowd with a fun-filled Adventure Party that includes up to 3 activities, a party room and the option to include food.

You can book your school residential trip with us in absolute confidence because we only ask for a £50pp+VAT 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.
We're proud to recruit and train the best instructors to ensure our activity programmes are engaging, motivating and fun.

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!)
We want you to make things as easy as possible for you when you book your trip.
Our Low Deposit scheme of just £50pp+VAT deposit prior to your trip means you can have complete peace of mind when you book with us.
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!
