Eco School Trip Challenge
The Eco School Challenge is a school trip abroad out of the ordinary. We arrange Africa challenges and educational expeditions for groups of young adventurers from colleges and schools. A trip abroad in the developing world will stretch comfort zones, teach life skills, and expand minds outside the classroom.
Worldwide Experience can provide tailor-made Africa challenges to suit the needs and ambitions of your group. We are already well established at a number of schools, colleges and universities within the UK, having planned their Eco School Challenge trips to various locations around the world. The aim of each school trip abroad is to promote a sense of adventure, leadership, responsibility and international understanding, preparing young people to meet challenges of the future with conﬁdence and compassion.
Although each Eco School trip abroad is entirely tailor made, we know what works well and are able to provide draft itineraries as a starting point for the process of designing your Eco School trip. See some existing options below of Eco School Challenges we already provide.
Education through experience is the heart of the Eco School philosophy, and our Eco School trips offer the experiences of a lifetime. Worldwide Experience will arrange expeditions packed with physical challenges and eye-opening cultural exchanges in some of the worlds most beautiful countries. Eco School expeditions are exhilarating journeys of self discovery that beneﬁt young people from all backgrounds.
Operating in several countries, and with the emphasis on “making a difference,” our challenges are based around conservation and community work with the added extras of adventure and R&R. What makes each experience so special is that the Eco School Challenge is completely ﬂexible, and can be tailored to suit each individual group depending on what elements are required.
We can help you make a completely unique itinerary for your school trip abroad.
How Does It Work?
Organizing your Eco School Challenge couldn’t be easier. Our fully trained UK and in-country teams are on hand every step of the way to help tailor your trip abroad to your school’s exact requirements.
There a number of activities to choose from, with each of the Eco School Challenges beneﬁcial both to the nature reserves and communities which you assist, and to your students on their unforgettable school trip abroad.
Eco School activities might include teaching, care and outreach projects in struggling communities; maintaining nature reserves that are home to elephants, big cats and rhinos; and tracking or caring for safari animals. Imagine a school trip abroad that includes a night time game drive or survival style sleep-out on a game reserve! Whether you want to focus totally on conservation elements, or spend the majority of time working with the community, we can create detailed itineraries for Africa challenges based on what you and your students require. We also run Equestrian Riding Trips in South Africa and Croatia!
