School trips, Projects, Orienteering

Rachel’s Learning Centre is the ideal location for school trips in the hills of Turin, offering a vast selection of educational green workshops, aiming towards the 2030 sustainable development goals. 

The centre was established in 2003 driven by a passion from the founding members to reconnect kids with nature in an outdoor educational environment. We pride ourselves in being a small centre enabling us to connect with every student that comes. Over the years we have hosted thousands of children both from schools and privately, sewing the seeds and inspiring them to be green change makers.  

We can adapt the workshops to your students needs depending on the teaching curricular. We offer trips from 1 day to 1 week. 

Students are involved in activities ranging from environmental workshops, sports, team building, animal care, arts&crafts to world famine projects with refugees.

Exciting – Challenging – Fun!

We love to connect children with nature from an early age.

Elementary School

Exciting – Challenging – Fun!

Hands-on nature projects for young learners. Our centre is a safe little paradise in Castagneto Po. The projects involve the use of different intelligences and cover all school curriculums from art to maths. All activities are conducted in the English language with mother tongue teachers. From projects with mud, adventure park challenges to riding our “team” of mini-ponies the children come alive in our outdoor classroom taking home lasting memories and a love of nature. 

All school subjects can be taught outdoors to further enrich their “in-class” experiences. From 1 day to 1 week, we can tailor workshops/trips to your classes’ needs. Please feel free to call us directly or fill in the online form.

Middle School

Educational – Informative – Fun!  

Welcome to the middle school years. An extremely important age for young minds. Fresh young students need inspiration and direction. Our school trips are full of fun and challenging activities to bond classes, build meaningful relationships and encourage empathy between students. We haven’t forgotten our passion to re-connect the students with nature and confront them with a series of activities including plastic pollution and recycle art. Our trips include canoeing in one of the most marvellous natural reserves in our area “il Parco Fluviale del Po”, a place where you can see turtles, river birds and a vast array of flora and fauna. We work closely with the teachers to design an unforgettable school trip based on your classes requirements. All our trips are conducted in English and include transport, lunch, activities and insurance. Duration of the trip can be from 1 day to 1 week. For costs please contact us with your requirements.
