A council-run outdoor education centre looks set to shut, with the loss of 22 jobs.
Leicestershire County Council wants to close Quorn Hall and sell the building.
The decision followed a three-month consultation on the future of three council-run outdoor education centres, which have received a total of almost £410,000 in subsidies in the past financial year.
Some £254,000 of that was on Quorn Hall.
Under the proposals, Beaumanor Hall, in Woodhouse, would remain open and Aberglaslyn Hall, in Snowdonia, could be transferred to a trust or community group.
Tony Mulhearn, assistant director of children’s services, said: “The council doesn’t have a statutory duty to provide outdoor education and schools are increasingly choosing other options and providers for this.
“In this austere climate we can’t continue to subsidise the centres at this level.”
Quorn Hall is a grade II-listed building and has been used as an outdoor education centre since 1983.
The majority of its visitors are from abroad.
In addition, it is used for residential and day visits by Leicestershire schools and youth groups. It also hosts meetings and training events.
Although school visits have increased, bookings for training, meetings and conferences have declined and expenditure has far outweighed income.
