Abseiling

Abseiling

Outposts' abseiling sessions all take place outdoors on natural rock faces. No man-made climbing towers in sight - this is the real deal! The group will be all the more elated with their achievement as a result.

The instructors based at the top and the bottom guide each child in navigating their way slowly and carefully down the rock face much to the delight of their on-looking teammates.

Caving

Caving

We operate in a number of naturally occuring caves in Somerset and using our qualified and highly experience caving instructors, we guide groups through the array of tunnels, each route designed to cater for the age and confidence levels of the participants. 

This activity is aimed at developing communication skills by using a buddy system whilst underground. It also takes most students out of their comfort zone and challenges them, building their self-confidence and sense of achievement. 

Learning outcomes

  • Resilience
  • Challenge and risk
  • Self-confidence
  • Communication skills
