Who we are

Whether we work in the office, maintaining the site or teaching activities we all love the outdoors. Some of us get on the water as much as possible, others enjoy nothing more than to conquer a new cragg, and there are those who just love going for a stroll on the beach in the mountains or through the forest.

What we do

Our four centres predominately provide adventurous activities through day trips and residentials for schools, colleges and universities. 

All our centres have a fantastic selection of outdoor and indoor activities to choose from, plus accommodation and facilities for students with physical and learning difficulties. Our team aims to ensure that all students have a positive and rewarding experience which will enhance their personal development.

Where we work

Hampshire Outdoor Centres is made up of four amazing outdoor centres.

Runways End Outdoor Centre in Aldershot brings a touch of the outdoors within a stones throw of Farnborough Airport.

Tile Barn Outdoor Centre is located in the stunning New Forest and has a history going back to the first world war when it operated as a military hospital.

Calshot Activities Centre, with its old seaplane aircraft hangars, is the biggest of the four centres and located in a prime position at the end of a spit of land surrounded by the Solent.

The Hampshire and Cass Foundation Mountain Centre is nestled in the Brecon Beacons and offers those who stay a taste of the truly stunning Welsh landscape.

Who we want

We want enthusiastic, motivated staff who believe in the value of what we do. Every role plays an important part in ensuring our customers leave us with memories that last a lifetime. Being outdoor centres mean the Instructional staff tend to get the glory. Although they are amazing at what they do, we all know if it wasn’t for the support staff in the background making the bookings, talking to the customers and fixing the broken kit the instructors wouldn’t be able to run those inspiring sessions.
