Environment & Outdoor Learning

Environment & Outdoor Learning

Alcoa, our local partners are currently supporting us to deliver a brand new and exciting programme of environmental learning and outdoor education for Scouts, Youth Organisations and Schools.

This is a great, new way of experiencing the woodland and all that it has to offer… whether you want to complete a nature badge with your Cubs or Scouts or you are a teacher who wants to deliver primary or secondary education to your students, we can offer a range of bespoke packages to suit.

Thanks to our partners Alcoa, Bradley Wood can now offer a wide range of environmental and outdoor learning opportunities. As an ancient woodland set in a fabulous 55 acre area, we have the perfect venue to host a range of activities for all ages.

Who are our environment packages aimed at?

We can offer packages to suit both primary and secondary education. Either pick from one of our standard packages, use our wide range of in house resources to run your own sessions or work with our team to create a bespoke package that works to your specific needs.

Awards and Badges

Scouts, Guides and other youth groups can complete any of their nature or environment badges at Bradley Wood, we also offer volunteering opportunities for badges and awards such as Queen Scout or Duke of Edinburgh.
