Pushing
personal boundaries
to explore one’s true potential

alphabet_outdoor_exploration_thin

Alphabet Outdoor Exploration is simply the best adventure camp in Italy. Our program is designed to take 12 to 16 years old campers through an endless outdoor sports journey, in direct contact with nature at its wildest.

 

Participants will acquire lifelong skills working in teams, learning about the environment, practicing orienteering and experiencing an amazing overnight expedition. They will put themselves to the test rock climbing, whitewater rafting, mountain biking through the woods, and much more.

 

Ultimately they will improve their communication skills and confidence by learning through experiential education, pushing their personal boundaries and exploring their true potential.

 

The opportunities for personal growth are embedded in everything that we do at Outdoor Exploration.

The camp is run entirely in English and our whole staff  is made up of qualified mother tongue instructors and teachers.

Sports and activities

Every day campers will face a new outdoor activity, representing for most a totally new challenge. A briefing session precedes every sport and once properly instructed and fully aware of the safety measures needed to practice the activity safely, our campers get into action and put themselves to the test climbing a vertical rock wall, whitewater rafting, mountain biking through the woods, practicing orienteering to navigate unknown territory, experiencing an amazing overnight trekking expedition, and much more.

In their down time, campers can make use of the pool, play beach volleyball, beach soccer, or simply lounge on the veranda chatting with their new friends.

Academic Program

outdoor-exploration-camp-0051

All campers take part in a 12 hour weeklong academic program specifically designed to improve their language skills. Students are tested upon arrival to evaluate their level of English and placed accordingly into classes of 4 to 6 with qualified mother tongue teachers. They follow a Cambridge ESOL based curriculum which focuses on enhancing speaking, listening, reading and writing.

The English academic program is engaging, communicative and complementary to the camp as a whole and serves to build confidence as well as provide parents with feedback on their child’s understanding and practical usage of English through an end-of-the-week report.

Location and Facilities

Our camps are located in central Italy in the wonderful region of Umbria, approximately 1.5 hours’ drive from Rome.  During the year all locations operate as ‘Agriturismo’, generally described as country estate.

We take these lovely locations exclusively for our staff and students, ensuring all the local honey, jam, eggs and scenery is ours alone to enjoy!

All bedrooms are charming and rustic, the right décor of country living with all the essential modern amenities.  All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, a daily cleaning service and night lights. For safety reasons there are no keys left in the doors and counselors, who sleep in adjacent rooms, are never more than a few steps away.
