Outdoor Ted was established in 2017 to give local schools a safe environment to visit, to give the children a memorable and very special day out. Based at the Skylark Nature Reserve Barlow, Nr Selby, this hidden gem is closed to the public when schools are on site.
We started offering team building activities but our offer now extends to outdoor learning across the curriculum, Stone Age, Great Fire of London, Nature Art, Problem Solving, Maths, Science, but not forgetting the favourites of both staff and pupils campfire cooking and shelter building.
We work with teachers to plan the perfect day to give both staff and pupils a day to remember.
By kind permission of Drax LTD we are now taking bookings for visits from October 1st 2021.
A huge thank you to DRAX for allowing us to come 'home' but also to all you schools that stuck by us and booked us to come and work with you as well as waiting patiently for us to re-open.
We can't wait to welcome you back!
Our children's books
Our first children's book is out now! Meet Outdoor Ted as he meets new friends after finding he needs a new home, a book about helping each other, problem solving (which link to activities we offer) and making friends. A happy adventure that's easy to act out in your own gardens or local woods.
BREAKING NEWS BOOK 2 IS ON ITS WAY!
