Woodland Classroom

A real environment where you can utilise risk, experience adventure, share your story and learn how to develop your own BOLD Perspective.

What is the Woodland Classroom?

Brand NEW for 2021!

The Woodland Classroom is a unique outdoor space (free from mobile phones) to enjoy new experiences; opportunity to be completely off-grid, to connect with other people and gain a healthy respect for nature.

Our newly-built timber cabin is set within the woodland at Ballabrooie. A cosy indoor space with a Scandinavian style log burner and purpose-built kitchen. Unwind in a relaxing environment after time spent outdoors…

Enjoy utilising risk, getting comfortable with challenge and navigating the unknown.

Launching April 2021

We have designed single day courses (coinciding with the apple blossom season), to prepare you for progressive outdoor adventures this summer!

Contact us for dates & details

  • A family-friendly day for groups of 6 – 8 persons
  • Families – Friends – Work Groups – Teams
  • Scheduled late April ’til early June

Learning how to use the outdoors is an essential skill (not just in current conditions), to enjoy and maintain your wellbeing.

Healthy people, Healthy thinking, Healthy environment.

a BOLD Perspective

A BOLD Perspective is a way of looking at the things we do, and aspire to do. It is a literal definition that is personal to you. It is different for each of us…

The Woodland Classroom is the Island’s first BOLD centre. Open yourself to challenge, and develop a new and BOLD Perspective, with us.

By providing an environment where you can learn to utilise risks responsibly, by showing a pathway to achieving your own goals, and by progressively handing over responsibility to you for your own learning, opportunity for development is maximised.

Leave your mobiles at home. This one is for you and your team, not your phone.

What will we actually do?

Story Telling – It’s what we do.

In order to share your story, memories are first created… unforgettable adventures are experienced as a team, and reflected upon… a BOLD Perspective is developed.

  • We provide an experience suited to you and your group’s needs, and space in your day to be…
  • Open your eyes to opportunities
  • We will offer a follow-on course in the autumn, with a progressively challenging theme.

There is nothing more valuable to learning than honest experience.

Risk Utilisation Education

We assist people to develop informed decision-making skills (through adventure sports).

  • Learn to prioritise whilst enjoying personal challenge
  • Be part of a journey where informed decision-making is natural
  • Share your integrity

team building – problem solving – solution generation – communication – resilience – dynamic planning – nurturing leadership – building trust – enhancing motivation

Leadership Training

Challenging, unique courses with a fresh, outdoor theme, in the Isle of Man.

We can devise outdoor simulations, coupled with review sessions that take aspects of your in-house programs and turn them into potent learning events.

Gain an understanding of the sea, and the surface in between. Learn about the tide, consider the environment, have real experiences and feel the benefits.

Enhance what you have

‘When coaching, the emphasis can often be on identifying things that are wrong and trying to correct it. A different approach is to concentrate on what worked well, and increase the likelihood of it happening again, and again…’ Jurg Gotz

  • Develop a new perspective to see the options
  • Make positive informed choices
  • Enhance (not replace) what already exists

Perspectives Change, People Develop
