Ernest Cook Trust: The OWL Collaboration

We joined the Outdoor Weeks of Learning (OWL) programme right at the beginning of the concept in 2020, agreeing that ‘every child should experience an immersive week in nature – as a rite of passage, rather than a journey for the fortunate few.’

Ernest Cook Trust has subsequently enabled us to support 230 young people who would otherwise never gain the opportunity to experience a whole week on our h ill farm.

The collaboration with eight other organisations providing outdoor education has been incredibly helpful, inspiring and reassuring to know that engaging young people, really does ‘make the difference.’
