Summit Monkeys was founded by Rachael Passant-Coy in 2013.

A qualified outdoor instructor, science tutor and secondary education consultant, Rachael has more than a decade’s experience teaching in secondary schools and outdoor education centres across Europe.

The business began with the belief that engaging with the natural world, by active participation in personally challenging outdoor pursuits, can deliver huge benefit to any individual, regardless of background or experience.

Today, Rachael encourages children and adults to challenge themselves safely, delivering fun, healthy, activity based programmes that promote self-awareness, risk assessment and personal growth.

Above all, Rachael believes the great outdoors are accessible to all. The natural world is not just a playground for elite athletes or extreme sports enthusiasts. Outdoor pursuits practised at every level offer enormous benefit to everyone. Anyone can take part.

Summit Monkeys combines the delivery of high quality outdoor education to small groups of children and adults, through bespoke programmes that can be tailored to suit a wide range of personal requirements.
