The week camps start with arrival from 12pm on the Sunday and departure is at 12pm on the following Saturday.

Every day is action packed, designed to ensure your child is kept busy from morning till night.   Our staff are all well qualified & experienced instructors, are DBS (CRB) checked and are permanent members of High Adventure OEC.  They are all in the outdoor education industry because they have a passion for outdoor sports and a bigger passion for passing this onto young people.

Send your child to a High Adventure Summer Residential Camp and see them grow in confidence on their return.  It’s more than just a holiday, it’s the opportunity for your child to gain skills and independence which will all go to further them in their formative years.

We also run two options for Overseas Students:

1) English language lessons and adventurous activities- Each day will be split between professional English lessons and outdoor and adventurous activities.  When doing the adventurous activities students mix with the English students attending the activity week and also mix with them during the evenings adding to the learning opportunities. For more information and costs click here.

2) Activity only: Join UK students on our Summer Residential camps.  This is a fantastic opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the English Language in a fun and adventurous environment.  A very basic level of English is all that is required to access this course for just £699 per person per week.


All accommodation is at High Adventure main centre in Cowling, North Yorkshire.

All rooms are dormitory rooms from 3 to 15 beds.

Students will not have their own room, they will be sharing.

All meals are provided.
