Where we come in

Breese Adventures offer outdoor residential and non-residential programmes and a range of outdoor activities. Our programmes introduce the benefit of learning outdoors, connecting with the environment and provide a whole range of opportunities to develop and improve life and employability skills.

Our activities

During our sessions we introduce you to the outdoors and a range of activites, promoting awareness of your individual strengths and abilities, an awareness of others and an understanding of the environment.

Programmes are small groups of 6 – 8 participants to allow flexibility and a high level of support for each individual. Each group will be accompanied at all times by 2 outdoor instructors.
