Circle of Life Rediscovery


We are a Community Interest Company based in East Sussex that provides outdoor learning experiences and training for young people, adults, families and organisations. Our team of Outdoor Learning specialists are passionate about nature and our aim is to share our knowledge and expertise with the next generation.

We are an approved East Sussex Outdoor Centre, Alternative Education Provider, Recognised Centre of the Open College Network, West Midlands Region and Award Provider of the John Muir Award at Discovery and Explorer Level.

“We aim to teach participants to care for themselves, care for others and care about their environment.” (from our Principles)

Whether you’re a teacher looking for woodland day activities for your school; an organisation looking for residential camps; want to gain a qualification in leading your own Forest School programme or just looking to brush up your bushcraft skills, we can help.

We know what learning outdoors can do:
We see time and time again the difference that getting in touch with nature and learning about the outdoors can benefit not only children and young people's self-esteem, but their communication skills and physical development too. For the adults who benefit from our training, we provide a great combination of theory and practice – an opportunity to reconnect with nature and learn new skills.
We provide a 'learning springboard'.
