Passionate about playing and the outdoors

Our Vision

Our vision is to see more children and adults taking part in outdoor play and reaping the benefits of being outdoors. We want play to be unplugged, social and excitingly challenging.

Our Mission

Our mission is to challenge the barriers to indoor & outdoor play and increase the opportunities for everyone to play more and get outdoors.

About Us

At Operation Play Outdoors we are passionate about play and the outdoors. Our aim is to empower people of all ages and from all backgrounds to spend more time outdoors. Our programmes incorporate play, bushcraft and Forest School principles for learning and are tailored to meet the needs of each group or organisation. We want groups to experience the improved health and wellbeing associated with being outdoors and provide the added experience of learning new skills, challenging themselves and understanding the value of play.

Supporting Healthy

Our mission is to support individuals, groups and organisations in providing high quality play and outdoor experiences for people of all ages and abilities! Play, and specifically outdoor play, provides opportunities to experience risk and challenge and is fundamental in supporting healthy development. It provides a great opportunity to keep active and it makes a positive impact on physical and mental well-being.

We understand the importance of providing opportunities for everyone to take part in that most natural and enjoyable activity – play.

We don’t stop playing because we grow old.
We grow old because we stop playing.

Hire is available to families, groups, schools, nurseries and any other organisations looking to get outdoors and play!
