About us

Active Schools is committed to providing schools with unique and engaging outdoor activities and team-building experiences. Our team is passionate about helping students develop important skills and values through fun and interactive experiences in nature.

On average, today's kids spend seven hours a day staring at electronics like phones, laptops, tablets, and television. Evidence demonstrates that kids today tend to swap active outdoor recreation for more sedentary activities, often to the detriment of their health and quality of life.

Encouraging children to increase their time outside and away from their devices aids their physical health and helps them become emotionally and intellectually tougher. There's simply no denying the benefits of getting outdoors more!

All our staff are fully trained, Garda Vetted, and have completed Safeguarding and First Aid training.
