Forest Trips For Schools & Colleges
FOCUS – RESILIENCE – MOTIVATION – CONFIDENCE – DETERMINATION – TEAMWORK
Training for life…
Our philosophy in training and working with students is to inspire & teach them staple tools & techniques that they can apply in every day life. Being outdoors and around nature is beneficial with mental and physical wellbeing & the students grow in confidence. They will discover a fun & unique obstacle experience teaching teamwork, motivation, mindset, focus, resilience, self-confidence, determination & friendship. All abilities & ages 6 + years.
Climb a ladder, rope or wall, then they can learn to climb other ladders in their life.
Jump over ridges, bars and water, then they will be able to jump up an over challenges that they are confronted with.
Balance on beams, bars and slacklines will bring balance in their mind and emotions.
Crawl under, though, over and down, then they will be able to crawl and adapt to those things around them.
Run for enjoyment, rather than to escape or fend off.
Be part of a team, to delegate, to lead, to guide, to mentor and to follow.
Enjoy the outdoor environment, nature and it’s beauty.
Appreciate that exercise and fitness, can be fun and enjoyable.

We are into our 4th year using Nuclear Races as part of the Woolwich Poly 6th form enrolment programme and they have delivered every time. The PTs are great at getting our year 12 students involved in all aspects of the course which is a feat in itself. They create a fun environment where the students are happy to give obstacles a try. The smiles, feedback and memories our young people make here is priceless.
The experience we has from arriving to leaving was unbelievable. The way the staff were interacting and motivating students to become resilient was inspiring and the students were motivated because of this. The staff were friendly, kind and enthusiastic. The pupils on the day were hesitant about getting muddy and felt like it would be a challenge and the pupils would not have been able to do this if it was not for the staff constantly encouraging them to overcome obstacles. This is a location in which we will be attending again due to the positive responses we have received from the students. Students have stated that
‘This is the best trip of the year’
‘Can we do this every year’
‘Really challenging but this was such an exciting trip’
What a great day out for everyone. Very relaxed and perfectly paced. Thanks to Tracy and Katie for bringing the best out of the children, who had more fun and found more strength than they thought possible.
Wild Forest are a force to be reckoned with! What an incredible experience this was for our Year 10 students, all of whom had a really muddy time. In these days in which image and tech seem to prevail amongst the young, it is great that they can abandon make-up, glossy hair, designer labels and phones for a couple of hours and just get down and dirty and enjoy un-self conscious fun! It was especially a delight to see the few who can find classroom rules a challenge, enjoying the chance to embrace leadership and teamwork so wholly. Thank you so much to the brilliant staff for such a positive experience. We’ll be back.
Thanks so much for everything you did in making our school visit to you so memorable and enjoyable. From the initial enquiry, though the excellent communication re booking, you made the whole process simple and efficient. My school would not hesitate to recommend you or to visit again in the future.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team. From the minute we arrived our students were made to feel so at ease particularly in a completely new environment. Our students absolutely loved the day! As teachers we loved that we were able to get stuck in and create different bonds with different students. Your team made it clear that it really didn’t matter if they were successful in getting across the obstacles as long as they gave it their best go, which really encouraged our students. It is a must resilience builder for schools! Cannot wait to organise the next trip!
Nuclear Wild Forest were extremely accommodating and helpful throughout the whole trip planning process. On the day the instructors were well organised, motivating and encouraging to all our students. Our Year 10 students thoroughly enjoyed their Resilience Day and came away with life long memories, an experience of personal challenge, developed team building skills and found a new love of mud!
We had a truly fantastic trip to Nuclear Forest with our year 6 children this year. The activities reinforce our academy values of achievement, belonging, confidence and determination, which all lead to excellence. Encouragement from the supportive and knowledgeable staff allowed every child to take part and feel that they could take on new challenges. It was wonderful to see the teamwork shared by the children and how they encouraged their peers to try their best. We would certainly recommend Nuclear Forest and will definitely be back next year!
Our Year 5 children (and staff) had an excellent day and the wild forest. It was fast paced, giving children so many memorable experiences. It was wonderful to see them all come together as a team, supporting each other to persevere and try new things. We will definitely be rebooking for next year!
A huge thank-you for a fantastic day at Wild Forest for our year 6’s. Your staff are amazing and made the day so much fun for all our students, even the ones who needed a little more support. We’ll definitely be back next year!
The staff were amazing from start to finish the kids really really enjoyed themselves! They have not stopped talking about it all morning. Thank you for being so patient with changing numbers etc and providing such a great activity for our pupils!
Yet again, we have had the most amazing school trip with Nuclear Wild Forest. The team are so professional, organised and fun that we never fail to have the most wonderful time. The team excel at motivating and supporting every child (and adult!), encouraging us all to take risks and get up and try again if it doesn’t go well the first time – every child leaves feeling valued and proud, whatever their capabilities or level of involvement is. This trip is the highlight on our school calendar and we can’t wait to return!
Just wanted to say a massive thank you, all of the students and staff have loved the site and all of the activities. All of your staff where amazing and gave the learners a brilliant experience.
We booked Wild Forest mud assault course for our students following a successful trip last year. Every time a new set of students follow up on a previous trip, you wonder whether the experience will be the same and worth it. The day was amazing from start to finish.
If you’ve not been there before its well worth a visit, even the arrival on coach takes you into a large open area with obstacles looming in the distance. Sam and her team were there to greet us at the ready ensuring names were ticked off and disclaimers registered (always appreciate the rigour, shows true professionalism). Quick spot of lunch and then we were off in groups of 30.
We all had images of us mad dashing across an assault course, out of breath, the fittest winning. However the obstacles were taken through one at a time and this allowed some less fit students to have the same engagement and helped to build the whole team spirit.
Obviously mud was the order of the day, one student saying to me ‘where’s the mud, I came here to get dirty’. They didn’t let us down and soon we were elbow deep in mud and fun. Thee water slide being a particular favourite for the day.
I could wax lyrical about the day but the overall theme is the instructors are there to keep it light and make sure there is controlled fun and a great atmosphere.
For other educators out there, they make the day easy and ensure students come away worn out and satisfied.
A great experience and well worth the money.
Once again we had an incredible time with you all today. The children loved it! Thank you for being so caring with J and making their Leavers trip one to remember. Same time next year
What an incredible team you guys are! Over the years I have organised and supported many, many school trips and the ones which are really memorable are those where the people we meet are outstanding. You and your team are exactly this.
Thank you for being so helpful and accommodating with all of my nit-picking in the run up. I know that it must have been irritating and I really appreciate your patience.
The students have had a wonderful experience and I am already receiving messages from parents whose – at first reticent – children have come home absolutely buzzing. There was not a feeling of enormous anticipation from either students or staff. From the students, in part, as school trips are often seen as an opportunity to wear your cool clothes. I think that today enabled them to see much more important qualities in each other, and just relax and have fun and laugh at themselves. I even heard one girl say ‘I am so glad that I didn’t wear mascara!’ Likewise the staff were not all really keen, and the Deputy Head stopped me to mention this before we left – I think that he perceived that I was pushing people who really wanted to supervise to participate. However, several of the staff who had either not come with a change of clothes or a particularly positive outlook thoroughly enjoyed themselves and fully participated. I had to find one of them a change of clothes to travel home to London in as she couldn’t resist the fun!
We had a fantastic time at the Wild Forest for our Form 6 leavers treat day – what an incredible, jam-packed day full of fun, adrenaline and physical activity. The children were greeted by very welcoming staff and then were taken to start the course. The course included activities such as, a variety climbing and hanging walls, going through tunnels and climbing up water ramps and much more. The children thoroughly enjoyed the final activity; The Death Slide. The instructors were brilliant in encouraging nervous children to participate in all of the activities. We had a wonderful time and we would highly recommend for school trips.
I just want to say thank you for a brilliant day! It all went so successfully and so many children have exceeded my expectations! Thank you to your team who were fabulous. I will definitely be pestering SLT for me to be able to bring year 5 next summer.
Dear Sam,Just to let you know how impressed we all were with the activities, organisation and management of the whole day yesterday. Every one of our pupils, regardless of ability had a fabulous time and would love to come again.Thank you so much.
This was our first trip organised as a school since the beginning of the pandemic, and it was brilliant from start to finish. We organised it for our year 6s in lieu of their cancelled residential. Sam was very helpful during the planning and organising and answered all the questions I had before the trip. On the actual day, it was very well organised and the children got to make the most of their time there by getting involved with a range of obstacles. The staff were friendly and encouraging to everyone, including the teachers! They clearly demonstrated each obstacle and made them seem achievable, even to the children who were anxious. There were basic showering (hot wash with a hose) and changing facilities at the end, which were fine as the children were well prepared with their kit. Would recommend this to any other schools wanting an active day outside of the classroom; the children developed their team-work and communication skills, how to challenge themselves and most of all had lots and lots of muddy fun!
Our students (and accompanying adults) had a great day at the Nuclear Races. The staff were organised, friendly and managed behaviour effectively. The children were challenged throughout the day and many achieved things they initially thought they wouldn’t be able to do; they were encouraged to push through their boundaries and persist. Parents were extremely happy with how the day was run and how excited their children were when they got home. It was a great way to end the year and I thoroughly recommend to schools looking for an active, inspiring and stimulating day out.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for hosting such a great day for our Year 6 pupils. It was so wonderful to be able to challenge the children with new experiences and to hear their screams of laughter!
The staff were amazing and supported every child in overcoming fears, encouraging them to try activities that they previously thought they would not be able to do.
Our year 6 students usually go to a residential but this year, due to Covid, we thought we would try something different and more local. We are so glad that we did! Staff certainly felt that the day at Nuclear Races went above and beyond and we are now considering planning a staff event as soon as we are able.
A fantastic day for all – made possible by a friendly and supportive team from Nuclear Wild Forest.
I thought the day was excellent and so well organised. The children were enthusiastic to take part in the activities and were expertly guided through the obstacles and coxed superbly to do activities they may have been nervy of.As a staff we felt we couldn’t single out one member of the team as we thought you were all excellent.
The students and teachers from The Chalfonts Independent Grammar loved their trip to nuclear races. It was thrilling, exciting, fun and messy! An excellent team building experience and worth all the mud in the world. This was our 4th trip to Nuclear and we will keep going and going – no better way to test your resilience and you have an amazing sense of achievement afterwards.
Our whole year group, children and staff, had a great time on our Nuclear day. The children threw themselves into every challenge they faced, particularly if it meant landing in water or a massive pile of mud, and came out at then with new confidence and better teamwork skills. We will be back again!
As part of an activity week, we took nearly 350 pupils over 3 days to the Nuclear Wild Forest site.
The day was well planned and offered tasks to suit and challenge the children’ physical skills and abilities, improving their team work skills and resilience.
Many of the children were just looking forward to getting really messy in the mud… but the inclusion of the obstacles really boosted their self-confidence and gave them a real sense of achievement to take away with them!
There was never any pressure to complete the obstacles, but plenty of positive encouragement and advice was offered every step of the way by staff, who many are serious OCR competitors themselves.
The team leaders celebrated the pupils successes and highlighted good practice along the way for other to learn from.
We had an absolutely fantastic time visiting the Nuclear Wild Forrest venue and would thoroughly recommend the day to others!
I’ll probably bump into you or your staff this summer for your Saturday classes!
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the Wild Forest. Our favourite part was the death slide, where we would shoot down a wet slide that would launch us flying into the lake. After 3 hours completing the obstacles and zip wire, we were so muddy we were pleased to get in the warm showers. It was very enjoyable and we had a great day. We would most definitely do it again. Y9 & 10 Thank you for creating an amazing experience for our students. They were begging to return as soon as we got on the coach. So, see you next year! Very happy students make very happy teachers!
The hugest of thank you’s to Laura and Sam for an amazing time at Nuclear Wild Forest – the day surpassed all our expectations! Monkey bars, climbing walls, ropes, obstacles galore, ‘the deathslide’ and mud… so much mud! The girls had a blast – working together to face challenges whilst getting filthy and soaked – and they are still buzzing from the experience! Instructions at each obstacle were delivered in an informative but fun way, and all safety measures with regard to COVID were well executed. A huge success and we can’t wait to come back!
Our children absolutely loved their afternoon at Wild Forest! I know that it’s something that they will remember – most said it’s the best school trip they’ve ever been on. Your instructors were excellent and were able to encourage the timid children and control the boisterous children. We will definitely be back next year with our Year 6s! Thanks for organising it for us.
Yet another amazing day with the Wild Forest Team! This is the trip that all the children and staff look forward to and spend the rest of the year talking about!
The day was so well organised by Sam and her fantastic team and every instructor ensured that all children were safe, encouraged, supported and ultimately had the most fun ever! As a teacher, the day gives you such a unique experience to build relationships with your class, develop team spirit and respect and share such an exciting adventure that would not be possible in a classroom environment. This is the fourth year that we have visited and are already looking forward to returning next year!
Thank you so much Nuclear!
We all had an amazing time. Thank you so much. Laura was extremely pleasant, polite and understanding of our boys’ needs. She was encouraging and patient, demonstrating the best way to complete the obstacles. Our boys thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Torrential rain… perhaps not the best of conditions, but it did nothing to stop the girls having an absolute blast.
What a day at Wild Forest! So much rain, and SO much mud, but Third Form got stuck in (literally!), showing bravery, teamwork, resilience and kindness in bucket loads. All girls faced a fear in some form or another, but with the guidance of Laura and lots of cheering, all obstacles were tackled – absolutely brilliant! Our quote of the day: “I feel like a superhero”.
Thank you to the team for making pretty awful conditions a lot of fun, and bring on next year!
Thank you so much for a memorable enrichment day. The staff were fun and engaging and really helped to motivate the students to do their best. It was lovely seeing all the students experience an obstacle course that tested them mentally and physically. Once again THANK YOU for such a great time
I really enjoyed this school trip to Nuclear Races considering it was the first trip we had in a long time. There were so many activities to do and enjoy with our friends, it was a fun day which brought us all together making a memorable and fun day for all. My favourite thing was to watch my peers and some of my teachers go down the Death Slide and fall into the lake. Another activity I really enjoyed was the wall, running up the ramp and trying to hold onto the rope or edge trying not to fall and the cheering of your friends encouraging you told hold on and get to the top gave an excellent rush of excitement and adrenaline. I would definitely go again! 10/10.
