Lambourne End Centre for Outdoor Learning

Lambourne End Centre provides personal development opportunities for young people, ranging from adventurous, farming and environmental activities, designed to build confidence, self-esteem and aspirations.

  • Mission statement

    Lambourne End Centre is a unique combination of ingredients – a working farm, and residential centre for environment & horticulture education and outdoor adventure activities – designed to give children and young people precisely the right social and learning skills to support their development. We strive to continually improve the facilities and opportunities available to young people at the centre and are dedicated to maximizing the skills and learning they can take away from their time spent with us.
    Situated ideally within the M25, on the border with rural Essex and urban London; the Centre has become increasingly popular with community groups, schools, youth agencies and special needs groups from East London, Essex and further afield as part of their educational, developmental and life skill programmes for young people 5 to 25 years old.
    Many of the young people with whom we work are deemed to be 'at risk' or struggle in mainstream environments, be that employment, school, with law or family. Yet in this alternative environment, they flourish and feel relaxed, confident and motivated.

  • Aims

    Lambourne End Centre for Outdoor Learning aims to:

    • To provide a safe, welcoming, interesting site, where people can use our adventurous, farm and environmental facilities to enjoy bespoke programmes of activities focusing on personal development.
