The Berkshire Outdoor Education Trust (BOET) was founded in 1977/78. The original purpose of the Trust was to locate and operate an Outdoor Education Centre for the use of Berkshire school children. The Trust was started with the active encouragement and support of Berkshire County Council and its then Director of Education, Peter Edwards and the late John Wood Griffiths an officer in the Berkshire Education department.

Aims & Objectives
Berkshire Outdoor Education Trust Ltd. (BOET) gives grants to assist Berkshire schoolchildren, to participate in a visit to a centre for outdoor education in the UK.
Applicants intending to visit the Outdoor Education Centre at Rhos y Gwaliau in North Wales will be favoured but this should not deter schools from making applications for grants towards other outdoor education activities.
