Outdoor Adventure and Wellbeing

WIPL has a highly experienced team of staff who lead on programmes of outdoor learning and recreation at all levels from school, undergraduate, postgraduate, community and business sector.

We support the work of professionals in Wales across the UK and internationally in outdoor centres and businesses in the field of outdoor learning, adventure, bush craft and in particular linking outdoor experiences with the landscape with a focus on a ‘sense of place.’


International adventure and outdoor programmes

WIPL runs international summer programmes. The programmes are 2 or 3 weeks long and focus on developing sustainable approaches to outdoor learning, adventure activities, environmental education, sports science and cultural activities. Experiential education approaches develop independent learning and critical thinking skills.

A sense of place

For a number of years we have been using ‘a sense of place’ to enrich student experience in outdoor activities being one of the first to develop this form of teaching and understanding. Over the past decade interest in the significance of a sense of place in the literature of outdoor education has been increasing. In the UK, the relationship between outdoor education and the wider environment tends to be mainly focused on the science of the natural environment and the activity under study.
