The sites that we choose for your residentials can handle large numbers of students and pass our rigorous safety requirements. Our residentials are a mix of outdoor education, creative activities, and teambuilding experiences that are designed to foster leadership, physical challenge, and a fun sense of adventure! In the Fall term we focus on teambuilding between students and students & teachers. In the Spring term we focus on celebrating the school year.
