A stepping stone to a lifetime of adventure
The first KE school group travelled to Pakistan's Karakoram Mountains in 1988 and since that time demand for school expeditions has become increasingly popular. We have a School Group Team dedicated to this aspect of our business. On this website, you will find 2 and 3-week school group itineraries to the mountainous regions of Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America, as well as shorter adventures in Europe, North Africa and Arabia. As a general rule, they are designed to be suitable for students aged 14 and over.
School group adventures worldwide
At the heart of our School Group Adventure Travel programme we are pleased to be able to present a worldwide collection of more than 20 adventurous and educational itineraries, each of which has been devised with school groups in mind. As a starting point for your school, we recommend that you consider one of these established trips. Each of these itineraries can, of course, be amended to suit the particular needs of your group, to ensure that your students are confronted with a range of contrasting activities. Whether your priority is for trips with cultural, historical or geographical interest, or whether it's the sheer challenge that appeals, you will find what you are looking for on this website.
Adventure Travel, an educational experience
School group adventures are recognised to make an important contribution to the curriculum, with adventure travel providing a great opportunity for youngsters to learn through first-hand experience. Travelling to new and exciting geographical environments, confronting new challenges and experiencing very different cultures, students gain a better sense of perspective and a clearer understanding of their own place in the world. Other acknowledged benefits of the group travel experience are improved self-confidence and the development of leadership, teamworking, planning and communication skills.
Get Involved - Juniper Trust
Working together with KE's partner charity, the Juniper Trust, many school groups choose to include a community project within their itinerary. This is often found to be one of the most rewarding aspects of the trip.
