Welcome! At Essential Skills Outdoor School our passion is wilderness adventure, and our focus is safety, personal responsibility and respect for the environment.
“Bill, I’ve been meaning to tell you what a fabulous time we had on our spring trip. What a glorious day of climbing! You offered do-able and challenging climbs, along with a great sense of humor and a real understanding of teenagers. Thanks for the wonderful day and the lasting memories. The students have been bragging about their day on the rock ever since we arrived back here at Scattergood Friends School.”
