We work with schools, colleges, youth groups, employers to enhance the lives of young people. We aim to teach confidence, awaken adventure and immerse students in what the great outdoors and nature have to teach us. 

This year  28,000 young people accessed a service through Notts Outdoors. We welcomed schools, youth groups, and families from within Nottinghamshire and the surrounding counties.                                                                                2022   

We have eight centres across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, all offering something different and unique. Our two residential centres, St Micheals and Hagg Farm, are located in the outstanding natural beauty of the Peak District National Park. In Nottinghamshire, we have a wilderness experience camp - Camp Redwood located near Clumber Park, and five environmental education day centres, Perlethorpe, Brackenhurst, Sherwood, Rushcliffe and the Mill Adventure Base.
