United Kingdom·October - January
Go wild with Nick CarterVIEW DATES
Over the last few years, I've been on some wild adventures: swimming the English Channel, running across the Sahara, journeying into the world's deepest caves, exploring the Amazon rainforest and climbing Mount Everest. My mission is to help young people learn important values like kindness, empathy, teamwork and toughness. I thought it was high time I 'show' children, rather than just 'tell' them, how adventures can change your life for the better: so for the first time ever I'm putting on a weekend of values-based adventures for children near London, with some of my coolest adventurer friends. There'll be activities like bushcraft skills, a climbing masterclass, orienteering challenges and fire-side adventure stories. It's going to be really full-on and personal. Who's with me?
On this amazing adventure, Nick will be joined by some really inspirational and educational friends. The expedition team is comprised of school teachers from the Adventure Society who have more than 15 year's experience putting on adventure activities for children across the UK and abroad. All leaders are DBS checked and trained in physical and mental first aid.
As a fully qualified PE and games teacher, Ellen is happiest when off in the great outdoors. Born and raised in Norfolk, she has great experience in kayaking, sailing, skiing and white-water canoeing. Ellen has taught in "barefoot learning" schools in India, where the school day would often involve a 10km hike to the nearest waterfall so that the children could explore the natural world around them.
