Kempston Outdoor Centre

This is Blue Peris’ sister centre in Bedford itself. Located in Kempston it is ideally placed to offer challenging and exciting activities such as:

  • Indoor Climbing and Abseiling
  • Outdoor Climbing and Abseiling on a tower
  • Archery
  • High Ropes Course
  • Camping Expeditions
  • Canoeing and Kayaking
  • Initiative Challenges

Courses at the centre are designed to promote the personal development of our students through adventure experience and provide opportunities for lifelong learning skill development.

As at Blue Peris, we also believe that self-confidence, an increased awareness of others and a positive approach to the world around us can all be enhanced through carefully constructed learning in a new and challenging environment.

Kempston Outdoor Centre is a part of Bedfordshire Outdoor Adventure and, alongside Blue Peris, is one of the first centres to gain the Learning Outside the Classroom Badge LOtC.

There is lots going on at the Centre all the time. If you are a group that wants activities or you are just on your own contact the Centre Manager for more details:
