Education Outdoors

Education is the point at which we decide whether we love the world enough to assume responsibility for it, and by the same token save it from that ruin which except for renewal, except for the coming of the new and the young, would be inevitable. And education, too, is where we decide whether we love our children enough not to expel them from our world and leave them to their own devices, nor to strike from their hands their chance of undertaking something new, something unforeseen by us, but to prepare them in advance for the task of renewing a common world.

Education Outdoors

Up the creek will work with you to facilitate meaningful authentic experience. Our aim is to offer positive memories of people in nature that will last until well past a students retirement. We do this by co creating bespoke experience. As a direct consequence we do not offer off the shelf programs. Book in for a free consultation where we can explore your needs. If there is a spark we can develop a program fit for context and purpose.

Up The Creek offer bespoke experiences aimed at meeting the educational needs of your school / organisation and our philosophy. Read the website and if there is a spark. Let's start a fire!?
