Dorset Outdoor Education Service

Bespoke day and residential courses and experiences for children, young people and adults.

Our 4 centres located across Dorset provide a range of indoor and outdoor activities for people of all ages and abilities. We can tailor activities and courses to groups and individuals. From water sports, orienteering, sleeping under the stars, to rock climbing, historical activities and environmental field studies, we've got it covered!

We also administer the Duke of Edinburgh's Award and provide forms and guidance for all school offsite activities and events.

We are open to families, friends and individuals for sessions.
