Bryntysilio Outdoor Education Centre
Developing strategies for learning that make sense, sharing memorable and meaningful experiences. Connecting with ourselves, each other and the natural world.
Children’s learning at Bryntysilio is inspired by engagement with the local landscape. Learning strategies are developed and children are encouraged to make sense of their learning and understand it’s use in other contexts…at school,home and in the wider community.
Walking in the local hills, seeing people working on the land, looking at patterns in the landscape and reflecting on our natural world. Gaining an understanding of sustainable use of the environment and developing opinions and a positive relationship with their surroundings.
Physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development through the outdoor journey is developed through the activities used as ‘learning platforms’.
Bryntysilio has been providing adventure learning in the outdoors since 1969 to Walsall school children, and in recent years Bryntysilio has opened its doors to schools and organisations from all over the UK including as far afield as Greenwich and Lewisham in London to Shropshire and the Midlands, Derbyshire, Nottingham, Liverpool and Kent. Bryntysilio is the ‘home from home’ outdoor education centre that welcomes groups from all over the UK.
