This paper which has evolved out of a much larger doctoral thesis, explores the value of placing the learner at the heart of their own learning, whilst using the notion of learning in through and about movement as a pedagogical approach. This approach is examined in the context of Outdoor Adventurous Activities (OAA) at a residential camping centre, located on the Essex, Greater London borders in South East England in the United Kingdom. One hundred and sixty children, over a four-year period to date, have taken part in the venture and their views and thoughts are used to illuminate the discussion surrounding the value of learning in through and about movement in the outdoors.
