Outdoor Learning at The Kingswood Trust

We guarantee your experience will be a breath of fresh air, creating lasting memories and ensuring enrichment and achievement for everyone. Our outdoor education programmes promote health and well-being as well as nurture a sense of curiosity and fascination in the natural world.

Our charity, The Kingswood Trust, is a place where history comes alive with old buildings, air-raid shelters, historical features and artefacts. Outdoor learning takes place in our woodland and natural habitats, pond areas, bird hide, climbing trees, adventure ropes, forest school base camps and gardening areas. Opportunities to meet our sheep, ducks and chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs and tortoises are a favourite with all our visitors. Our team building programme offers essential skills activities for personal growth.

Satisfaction

Volunteer hours last year

We had a very enjoyable day, well organised and professionally run with great staff. There was laughter and nonstop chatter, from start to finish.

- Elizabeth Birch, Cheltenham Ladies College Guild.

Thank you for letting us do all the activities and have fun. I liked doing the peg trail and tree climbing. I want to go again because it was so good.

- Sophie (Aged 6).

The Orb was ideal for all our needs with space for the 15 of us to eat together, perfect for group activities and families. I think we would struggle to beat it on quality and value for money.

- Max Woollard from Cheshire.

Volunteering at The Kingswood Trust makes me feel valued and confident. It was great fun, giving the pets their breakfast and discovering freshly laid eggs in the chicken coop. Thank you for such an amazing opportunity.

- Juliet (Aged 12).

My favourite activities were the rope course, the midnight walk and the air raid shelters. Thank you for letting us stay for a night and meet the animals. You looked after us so well.

- Johnnie (Aged 7).

The Kingswood Trust is a great place to visit and volunteer. Working at the Trust has helped me become more confident and now I am now in full time work

- Stuart Bickerton from Telford.

Thank you for looking after my children at The Kingswood Trust Holiday Club. They have both thoroughly enjoyed their adventures, nature based and fun outdoor activities and arrive home happy and tired, ready for a good night’s sleep.

- Simon Briscoe from Wolverhampton.

The Kingswood Trust charity is a place where there are no limits to learning and no boundaries to the imagination.

- Rachel Wells - Head Teacher and Charity Manager, The Kingswood Trust.

I loved the zipline and feeding the rabbits. My most favourite time was when we ate our roast dinner and then went to the play area. I have been begging Miss Mason to come back soon and I hope we will.

- Rukudzo (Aged 7).

Discover nature. Learn outdoors.

I’m an advocate for outdoor learning and I’m going to tell you why I believe nature is good for your health, so here goes…. Not enough people are getting outdoors often enough. Perhaps it is lack of time, too many things to do indoors, too much technology, tv screens...
