School Trips – Day Trips with Bowles
A day or activity session at Bowles is an unbeatable way to inject energy and enthusiasm for learning into your group. Excellent classroom-based education needs to be supported by equally good learning outside the classroom. Whether you want to support the curriculum, build rapport and understanding among your class/year group, or to reward them for all their hard work, a day visit to Bowles will have a huge impact.
We have developed a new range of day courses on top of our traditional range of core activities. These new day courses are;
Out and About with Bowles
Although Bowles is traditionally associated with high quality residential programs, we are now taking our skills, expertise and experienced staff team on the road. We use many different venues in Kent and Sussex, and in order to make your trip easier we are able to meet your school at these venues or even pick groups up from your school grounds.
Themed day courses
Day courses at Bowles which not only provide quality outdoor activities but are also directly linked to topics within the national curriculum
We are currently offering three different day days, Carbon Cycle, Mountains of the World and Local Rivers. With imagination the outdoors can be linked to so many topics that it would be impossible to list them all here.
Team Challenge at Bowles
There are 11 team-building challenges set within our woods. Groups of between 8 and 12 students (depending on your overall group size) will be given maps to navigate to different challenges scattered around the enclosed one acre woodland area.
The aim is to work together and complete as many challenges as possible within the set time.
Bowles is currently developing a range of mobile team building activities so we can bring Bowles to you. All we will need is an outdoor area such as a sports pitch and we will be able to set up a wide range of team building challenges. This is a great one day option for schools, saving time and money on transport to Bowles.

A day course works well if timescales or budget prevents a group coming for a residential trip to Bowles. Some schools also use this as an opportunity to introduce younger pupils to adventurous activities in the years preceding a residential trip with us.
