Share Discovery Village highlights 6 benefits of Winter Residentials

We believe the transformation is greater the sooner a residential takes place in the school year. Yet residentials in schools are more likely to take place in the summer term, just as the teacher is saying goodbye to their class. Here are some compelling reasons why schools should plan #WinterResidentials. 


1. A greater Return on Investment with a Winter Residential for your School

Cost can be the main barrier for many schools and groups when it comes to organising a school residential. But what if you could have all the benefits of a residential at a much lower cost?

Booking a residential during the low season, November – February can prove to be much more affordable giving schools a greater return on investment. 

2. A positive start to the school year

A residential between November and February is an opportunity to build foundations of resilience, relationships and a healthy attitude to learning at the beginning of the academic year

3. Encouraging being active outdoors all year round with a Winter Residential

Why only play outdoors when it’s warm and sunny? A winter residential gives young people the opportunity to see how the outdoors can be explored all year round. It introduces positive, active behaviours and habits. 

4. A Winter Residential is ideal for SEND students

Booking a Winter Residential can often mean that there will be fewer other groups.  This relative peace and quiet can be ideal for young people with behavioural problems or sensory difficulties, giving a more favourable option for SEND students.

5. Fire up imaginations with evening activities during Winter Residentials

Shorter days mean more opportunity to sit around a campfire and take part in torchlit walks, activities that simply aren’t possible during the longer summer/autumn days.

6. Carry on regardless

Winter weather can be a fun way to teach resilience amongst young people. Pack for rain and cold and allow students to earn a real sense of accomplishment in completing outdoor activities in spite of the weather!
