Pride Escapes

Pride Escapes Logo

Pride Escape is a school holiday programme where we take your children away for a five day trip of a lifetime.

We are currently running one Pride Escape a year. We design the trips to give the cubs the very best of Pride Lands, with a focus on social education, teamwork, self-organisation and participation. We help them develop a sense of responsibility and discipline and we do heaps of structured physical activity to keep them fit and healthy.

We accept and include all children at Pride Lands. Being neurodiverse, anxious, non-binary, non-verbal, having behavioural struggles or anything else are no barrier, we welcome everyone.

If your child requires extra support during a Pride Escape, we can provide additional, dedicated, one-on-one mentoring for them during the entire trip. See our fees page for the cost.

If you have any questions about how we can support your child or children when they attend Pride Lands, please give us a call.

The kids help to make many of the great nutritious meals we have, and we all eat together.

There are only 24 places available on each Pride Escape, and they fill up quickly, so book early to avoid missing out.
