Arete Residential Fund is a charity set up to provide funding for pupils who would benefit from participating on an outdoor education residential trip. It’s can help fund primary and secondary school children whose families or guardians need financial assistance towards the cost of the trip.
The Trust’s aim is to ensure that the opportunity to experience high quality outdoor education in a residential setting is available to everyone, and that no one is excluded because they can’t afford the course fee. There are real benefits to learning through outdoor adventures that include confidence and character, health and wellbeing, social awareness, environmental knowledge and broaden horizons. We believe these learning outcomes are vital as part of a young persons education.
To receive funding please see our application process which can be done as either a school or an individual for any outdoor education centre in the UK.
