Join the Adventure

The Adventure Pioneers is an organization, that first started in 2017 when a group of friends who all had experience working with young people in Scouting, the Princes Trust, the Duke of Edenborough Award, and experience based learning, etc. got together and talked about starting a youth group and in 2018 The Adventure Pioneers a none profit youth organization became a realization.

Two of the Adventure Pioneers team have just returned from the Institute for Outdoor Learning annual conference held at YMCA Lakeside Cumbria. We were asked if we could provide a workshop for some of the members attending the conference under the heading How to make a comfortable camp (dens, fire, furniture and gadgets. with this in mined our base camp Playing with sticks in the facilitate play and adventure and things we used to call childhood "playing out" as we used to call it. We had a brilliant time explaining the different aspects of simple camping from the very basics up-to something more comfortable but all working around playing out, including methods of camp cooking, improvised shelters, gadgets and how to make them.

The Adventure Pioneers have just been on Radio Lancashire for over an hour talking to Sally about our youth organization the Adventure Pioneers, and all the things we can do for schools, youth organizations and groups, including individuals and others. we had a great time remembering about the things Sally did at guides, and what a difference getting involved with out door active's makes in helping young people in later life, and what a good thing we were doing to help young people to achieve a better understanding of outdoor living, and how the importance of getting out and doing things is in the development of young people, and preparing them for later life,  

We have just completed 4 bushcraft and survival days at St Johns school Poulton-le-Fylde teaching the importance of team work lessen one, two, building shelters etc. three, the importance of finding water and filtration and four, food, shelter and fire. all involved had a great time and they all had nothing but praise for what we had done. we are always available to introduce young people of all ages to outdoor learning, and the importance of team work and working together, all we want to do is make outside learning fun, or should we say playing out.


We have just completed two days instructing over 160 young people from St Marys Catholic Academy in an introduction to fire lighting and simple cooking on an open fire at Waddecar Scout camp site. Everyone had a great time and we received nothing but praise for what we had done.

Unfortunately At the start of the COVID outbreak We had to cancel all our planed activities and put everything on hold but this gave us the opportunity to rectify   some thing we did wrong when registering Adventure Pioneers with Company House. We are now registered with them as a a Community Interest Company or CIC.

Adventure Pioneers (Northwest) CIC

A community interest company (CIC) is a type of company introduced by the United Kingdom government in 2005 under the Companies (Audit, Investigations and Community Enterprise) Act 2004, designed for social enterprises that want to use their profits and assets for the public good. A community interest company is a business with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or the community, rather than being driven by the need to maximize profit for shareholders and owners. CICs tackle a wide range of social and environmental issues and operate in all parts of the economy. By using business solutions to achieve public good, it is believed that CICs have a distinct and valuable role to play in helping create a strong, sustainable and socially inclusive economy.
