Millfield launches new ‘Nine at Millfield’ Outdoor Adventure programme

20 Aug 2020

Millfield is expanding its Year 9 programme with a specialised Outdoor Adventure module, featuring new exciting excursions, camps and international

trips. The programme, which aims to promote self-discovery and curiosity within an exhilarating natural environment, offers a progressive level of challenge, to encourage confidence, resilience and the ability to work effectively in a team.

Thirteen-year-olds who join Millfield in Year 9 will progress through the programme over the course of a year, with the opportunity to experience a three-day camp in Cornwall, caving in the Mendip Hills, Canoeing, Mountain Biking, Rock Climbing and weekly Outdoor Adventure expedition sessions. The programme will culminate with a 5 day Summer Camp in the Forest of Dean, and pupils will also have the opportunity to join international treks in mountainous terrain, such as in Norway and Iceland.
