The Chapel Gate Outdoor experience provides you with an excellent opportunity to build reslience, team work and a further understanding of the natural world. Environmental psychology, and the studies surrounding human well-being and connectivity to the environment have shown us that by staying close to nature we feel more grateful and appreciative of what it has to offer (Proshansky 1976)

We can help you develop personal skills that are applyable to your personal and professional life, these skills will be developed by combining camp craft techniques such as Fire Lighting & Safety, Tarps & Hammocks, Knots & Hitches, Shelter Construction, Adventure Games, Forest Art, Nature Walks & Education, Archery and how to use survival tools like knives, saws and axes safely. 

Learn numerous ways to use natural resources wherever you may find yourself, and begin to see a world full of valuable and familiar tools that you can rely upon should you need them. 

Our outdoor sessions can be tailored to suit the needs of your group, we will work with you to meet your aims and objectives for the session, whether this is a children's party or a corporate team building experience.

The outdoor communal area is also available for booking as a meeting space if you are looking for that functional space with a twist. We can provide your team with hot drinks, a short introduction to camp craft skills as an ice-breaker or team builder before or as part of your team meet.

Recent Testimonials

Our team took the opportunity of working together in a different environment by spending a day at Chapel Gate – holding our morning meeting in the woods and working on our laptops in the Garden Room in the afternoon. Layne was really welcoming and had a fire set up for us when we arrived, with bean bags and hammocks around, and hot drinks with water boiled on the fire. It really enhanced our team meeting in allowing us to connect with nature and offered time for reflection in a calm setting.

Thanks again to you and Mark for facilitating this day, we look forward to coming back again. - BU Student Services Team
