Meet Pete

All activities are led by me - Pete Hubbard. My mission is to offer adventures that inspire you to get outside, learn new skills and explore amazing places.

Previously an engineer, and then a maths teacher, I have always had a passion for the outdoors. My experience of teaching outdoor activities grew and I have worked for a variety of outdoor centres, schools and adult groups.

I help children discover the places and activities that have inspired me. By keeping group sizes small, I get to know the children well and tailor our adventures to suit their interests and abilities. I will always be managing safety and will encourage kids to find a challenge appropriate for them.
