My older boys aged 10 and 8 go to the Outdoors Project most holidays and absolutely love it. My littlest had his first holiday club yesterday and came away buzzing and didn't stop talking for the rest of the day about everything he had learnt and experienced plus how much fun all the leaders were. Thank you for offering such an amazing experience for my kids!
The outdoors project gets a big thumbs up from me and my three boys. They have never failed to enjoy a session. The sessions are great fun and get the kids active, using their brains and working in teams. The instructors are brilliant. And itâ€™s great value. I canâ€™t recommend the outdoors project enough!
"I've always loved the idea of being my own boss but I'd never had an idea of my own that I felt so convinced would work that I was willing to take the plunge, either psychologically or financially. I've always loved the outdoors too, but ideas around opening campsites or buying some forest to use for...something...always felt so vague and risky. The Outdoors Project was a business I'd known of for a while and I always loved what they did. Getting kids outdoors and active is an objective that it's hard to feel anything other than incredibly positive about. When I heard there was an opportunity to take on a franchise it just seemed to make so much sense; here was a business completely in-line with my personal interests and goals, which operates with a social conscience and has been proven to be commercially viable. The Outdoors Project has been going long enough to know what works and what doesn't, what should be prioritised and where time should be focussed in those crucial first years. My experience as a franchisee is feeling the autonomy of running my own business combined with the comfort of knowing I can access support from an experienced HQ team when I need it. It's an exciting adventure without a blind leap into the unknown, and it's the best decision I ever made."
"After some amazing adventures & time working around the world in the adventure industry and working in the UK with a children charity for many years The Outdoors Project set a new challenge for me. Fast forward a few years and I find myself the Franchise owner for The Outdoors Project Bristol. I have found buying a franchise a huge benefit, as so much of the ground work has been done for me, enabling me to start up the business quickly and start earning money without having to go through lengthy and costly trials and errors. All procedures, branding, systems and paperwork were all in place so that when I started it, I really hit the ground running and had 5 full clubs within the first month of trading; with all staff having uniforms, schools having brochures and very thorough paperwork in place. Starting up, I had a lot of involvement from the Franchiser, including a multiday visit of the premises and a visit both to my own premises and a visit from myself to the franchiser. Going forwards I get a lot of support and advice on best practices and marketing. I get gently nudged in the right direction but am free to choose how to run my operation and in what direction"
