About

Circle of Life Rediscovery is a Community Interest Company based in East Sussex that provides funded and bespoke learning with nature experiences and training for young people, adults, families, schools and organisations. Our team of outdoor Learning specialists are passionate about nature and our aim is to share our knowledge and expertise with the next generation.

We are an approved East Sussex Outdoor Centre, Recognised Centre of the Open College Network West Midlands Region and Award Provider of the John Muir Award at Discovery and Explorer Level. Since 2004, we have successfully raised funds towards creating outdoor opportunities for the most disadvantaged groups in our society.

Over and over again we have found that this kind of work leads to better health and wellbeing, more opportunities, a greater sense of community, respect and love for nature.

Whether you’re a teacher looking for activity days at your school or in the woodlands; an organisation looking for residential camps or family days; want to gain a qualification in leading your own Forest School programme or just looking to brush up your bushcraft skills, we can help.

We know what learning outdoors can do:

We see time and time again how getting in touch with nature and learning about the outdoors can benefit not only children and young people’s self-esteem, but their communication skills and physical development too. For the adults who benefit from our training, we provide a great combination of theory and practice – an opportunity to reconnect with nature and learn new skills.

We’re based just outside Lewes, in East Sussex. You can find out all about us on our main website www.circleofliferediscovery.com

About Outdoor Learning

There is no great difference between a stone-age body and a modern one. Movement and time spent outdoors improves health and well-being for both teachers and pupils. Developing young people’s motor skills, ability to co-ordinate and awareness of their own body is a natural part of outdoor learning.
As an outdoor practitioner and teacher since 1992, I agree wholeheartedly with the research that shows how teaching in the outdoors affords huge benefits young people. We know for example that it develops self-autonomy and confidence, a rich and varied spoken language and the ability to communicate with others and express thoughts.
