Bringing the fun to you:
Adventure activities for Schools and Youth Groups
Join us at Talkin Adventures for an action packed day. Our wide range of activities promote physical activity for all ages, providing a natural platform for children to improve their interpersonal communication, cooperation, confidence and a host of key skills. Whilst our school/youth activity packages are aimed at Years 5 through to college, we also have some specialist options for younger groups.
We are ever adapting to the Coronavirus guidelines and your safety and that of our team are our top priority. We have our own risk assessments and will comply with your school's policies to keep everybody as safe as possible. School day visits and activities can still happen and we are keen to stop your pupils missing out on valuable experiences!

Suited to your own individual school
Take a look at our brochure for a wide range of options, or get in touch for something more bespoke. We often arrange activities on Summer's evenings and weekends.
Your group will have access to warm showers and changing rooms, should they be required. Lunch and breaks are usually outdoors or in the woods, but shelter can be provided in the event of bad weather. The Education Cabin at Talkin Tarn is available to hire seperately through the City Council if you prefer (we can arrange this).
Bespoke enrichment activities for kids near Carlisle, Cumbria
Every school is different and the desired outcomes from outdoor education, although similar, are unique to you. Some schools book our activities to add to their adventure sports week towards the end of term, whilst for others, our visit will really help teachers to mould their class for the year ahead. Build on your outdoor experiences and learning activity with us to help with your lesson plans. Our instructors will be fully aware of your desired outcomes and will liaise with you during the day to ensure that you are pleased with the progression of your event.
Each of our enrichment activities for kids will be adapted in line with your needs. For example, a fun archery session may have a greater emphasis on numeracy through keeping score in friendly competitions, or supporting others through team games and peer review. Our problem solving activities will be selected with your goals in mind, bringing a competitive edge to aid teamwork, or including a time management element to help engage the group.
All of our instructors have an enhanced DBS check.
