Circle of Life Rediscovery


We are a Community Interest Company based in East Sussex that provides funded and bespoke learning with nature experiences and training for young people, adults, families, schools 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, Recognised Centre of the Open College Network West Midlands Region and Award Provider of the John Muir Award at Discovery and Explorer Level. Since 2004, we have successfully raised funds towards creating outdoor opportunities for the most disadvantaged groups in our society.

Over and over again we have found that this kind of work leads to better health and wellbeing, more opportunities, a greater sense of community, respect and love for nature. 

Whether you’re a teacher looking for activity days at your school or in the woodlands; an organisation looking for residential camps or family days; 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 how 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.

"“It is easy for us to get caught up in the day to day issues that plague our own lives, our families, communities and nations, and loose sight of a broader vision to create a better world. To think that one person cannot make a profound change in the world is to not understand the cause of human development – for it is the only thing that ever has, ” is our differences that keep us together – “in the final analysis it will be our uncommonality more than our common ground that will provide the fertile soil for us to sow seeds of respect and understanding – the very soul of Rediscovery."
Thom Henley (Founder, Rediscovery Foundation)
