Day Programs

Our day programs for school children of all ages are focused on a wide range of topics, ideas and environmental issues that are relevant to school syllabuses and teachers of sciences, arts and the humanities.

They are designed to be self contained, comprehensive learning experiences that do not require any special pre-trip teaching preparation and can be appreciated at any time during the school year.

We conduct our trips in a range of different natural environments.

Some take place at specific locations dictated by the program theme, and others are available at the following locations:

- The Po hills, 20 km east of Torino and 100 km south west of Milano.

- Parco Naturale delle Lame del Sesia, in the Vercelli area, 60 km east of Torino and 60 km west of Milano.

Upon request we can carry out some of our programs in alternative locations, and can tailor-make programs on other subjects or syllabus themes.

“Outdoor and education came together perfectly as our classes experienced a range of purposeful and exciting trips that were also hugely entertaining!”.
Mark McGough, Head Teacher of the Bilingual European School of Milano

“Your hands-on approach to teaching and the way in which you encouraged students to conduct their own inquiries and investigations made our day trip memorable… Not only did this exciting day trip compliment the curriculum I am teaching in class, but it broadened both the students and my own knowledge of ecology”.
M. Schryburt, year 3 teacher, Bilingual European School of Milano
