The Lake District Calvert Trust is a residential outdoor centre with 40 years’ experience delivering challenging outdoor adventure holidays for people with disabilities.

On the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake, in the heart of the Lake District National Park, our centre offers a warm welcome; accessible accommodation and exciting breaks for schools, groups, families and individuals with their friends and carers.

We are accessible to people of all ages with sensory, learning or physical disabilities, including those with the most complex needs for which most outdoor centres cannot cater.

Learning in the Lakes with St Vincent’s School


The Liverpool Echo newspaper has written a piece about St. Vincent’s School's recent successful visit to the Lake District Calvert Trust.


You can read the story by clicking here.


St Vincent's is a Special Educational Needs (SEN) school catering for children with sensory impairments and other needs, with pupils ranging from Year 1 up to Year 14. In mid-March a group of 8 pupils and St Vincent's staff visited our centre for their annual ‘learning outside the classroom’ residential trip.

We thought we'd share the Echo's piece which talks about their experiences and the benefits of learning outside the classroom for children with special educational needs.
