Adventure Society

The Adventure Society is incredibly popular with Hampton boys. We do not meet on a weekly basis but organise a series of events throughout the year – local, national and international. The Society is open to all boys and is geared towards allowing them to face physical and mental challenges in a safe and nurturing environment.

Weekend and Holiday trips are arranged for all years and include the following range of activities:

Lower School

There are a variety of activities the lower years can take part in with the Adventure Society. These include:

  • Camping / Youth Hostelling
  • Walking
  • Orienteering – day and night!
  • Rock Wall Climbing
  • Mountain biking
  • High and Low Ropes Courses
  • Paintballing
  • Coasteering
As well as the above we also arrange a Second Year water sports activity weekend at Poole Harbour which focuses on sailing and kayaking. Second and Third Years also enjoy a multi-activity course in Snowdonia which includes mountain walking, rock climbing and abseiling, mountain biking and Canadian canoeing.

Upper School

In addition to the regular adventure society trips these years also enjoy a water sports trip to the South of France and the Mediterranean. Biennial Expeditions abroad are organised for our older boys. For many these have been the highlight of their time at Hampton and in the past destinations have included Malawi, Namibia and Borneo. The purpose is to introduce the boys to a variety of cultures and enable them to put their skills to use in helping the local communities. Most of these expeditions involve the physical challenge of a three or four day mountain hike.
