Ashridge Outdoor Learning provides spirit of adventure by presenting you with a series of tasks and challenges, some of which are slightly off ground. This creates a perceived risk, which helps a team to really focus and work closely together, drawing on a variety of skills and leadership techniques. But it is not about drill training, or sailing on rapids, or mountaineering or survival training. While all these types of training have value, they do not form part of our in-house activities.
We predominantly use a low-ropes course which is set in the beautiful natural woodland gardens of the Ashridge estate. Combined with the ropes course, we have a variety of team activities which involve problem solving skills, and do not involve being off ground. These are often mobile and can be done either in or outdoors depending on the weather.
