Youth Organisations

 A Hindleap Warren trip is full of fun, learning, development and adventure all set in 300 acres of beautiful woodland in the heart of Ashdown Forest.

An adventure at Hindleap will give your group an unforgettable experience and memories to last forever. Whether this is getting covered in mud while out exploring the forest and its streams, waking up with deer grazing outside your window or pushing yourself outside your comfort zone on our high ropes courses.

    Residential trips have been shown to promote a range of benefits for children and young people in terms of personal development, these include:

  • ASDAN Accreditation

    Hindleap Warren can also provide ASDAN accredited Short Courses. Our staff will run the activities and facilitate the classroom sessions allowing young people to learn from their experiences in our woodland. This nationally recognised award can then be added to a CV and referenced in an interview or application.

    What is it?

    The ASDAN Activities Short Course accredits up to 60 hours of mixed activity. It can be used in most situations, but is particularly suitable for accrediting activities taking place in youth projects that do not fit easily into set challenges.

    The Peer Tutoring Short Course is a second award, which offers the opportunity of additional recognition for young people who are supporting others through the Activities Short Course (perhaps having completed it themselves), or who are taking on a leadership role for a group of young people engaged on a specific activity.

    The flexibility of ASDAN’s Short Courses means that they can be carried out in a variety of settings, over a time period to suit the individual or co-ordinating centre.

    Who is it for?

    Young people of all abilities, mainly aged between 13 and 19 (as well as adults and younger learners, where appropriate).

    Short Courses are multi-level and so, the focus is on completing challenges and skills development according to individual ability, rather than attainment at a specific level.
