We work together with you to tailor-make programmes that match your group's objectives, using our years of experience to develop brilliant programmes that challenge, encourage and inspire young people to grow and continue learning.
We take on as much of the planning, logistics and organisation as you want, so that your students and school leaders and get high-quality, enjoyable and memorable experiences.
With this support we make these great programmes happen!
The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award
We believe wholeheartedly that the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award gives young people invaluable opportunities to learn new skills, grow in confidence and fulfill their potential.
As a leading provider of the Award and Expedition section in Germany, we advise and support schools introducing and establishing the programme, undertake programme administration as well as delivering the expedition section.
We have a realm of beautiful terrain on our doorstep and run Bronze, Silver and Gold expeditions- on foot or by bike- through the foothills and lakes of the Bavarian Alps or in the depths of the Bavarian Forest (Bayerischer Wald).
“I regard it as the foremost task of education to ensure the survival of these qualities: an enterprising curiosity, an undefeatable spirit, tenacity in pursuit, readiness for sensible self denial, and above all, compassion.”
- Kurt Hahn
Residential school trips for secondary schools
Our unique residential trips provide more than just amazing memories for your students. We draw upon the natural resources of our surrounding area- to explore and discover the local culture, history and environment.
Each residential is designed specifically to fit your school's priorities and needs.
Whether exploring the magical city of Salzburg, the historical sights of Munich, or hiking up to King Ludwig's fairytale castle, we provide opportunities for inquiry-based activities and reflection, enabling truly enriching experiences.
