“First Class! I’d just like to say a huge thank you for last week. Children (and adults) greatly enjoyed the experience and have arrived back at school full of stories and just about recovered from the week. Please thank Havi, Beth and Nathan on our behalf; the care that the children received was first class. We look forward to seeing you next year.” – Rachel, Aldenham School,
May 2018

“I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say what a fantastic time we all had with you guys at Cumulus. Despite the rain we were all buzzing on our return. Please pass on our sincere thanks to Roxy, SJ, Tom and the rest of the team there. They were all great. I asked the kids to write a brief sentence or two about the trip… “This was the best experience ever!” “The food was so tasty!” “I loved the songs and rhymes” “Staff were amazing” So many great comments. I have had so many positive e-mails from parents about the trip. So, again thank you so much.” – Sian, Bromsgrove School, Yr 6, June 2017

About Cumulus Outdoors (residential)

Cumulus Outdoors’ residentials are action-packed, bespoke and tailored to your requirements, fully supported by the office team.

Programmes can include coasteering, waterpark, mud run, kayaking, mackerel fishing, rock-climbing & abseiling. The perfect choice for a school trip or leavers’ camp, fun and educational, the 3, 4 or 5 day programmes encourage students to enjoy and explore the great outdoors.

Set in a secluded camp on the edge of Poole Harbour, with 24 hour on-site pastoral care, each programme combines traditional bushcraft with exciting adventure activities with all meals cooked on camp. In addition to these fun activities, we can also offer a range of educational modules utilising our links with local providers such as the Jurassic Coast Trust, RNLI Swanage and RSPB Arne, providing added depth to your programme if you choose.
