Several group leaders who have paricipated on our activity course have commented how they see a different side to their students during the course. By setting mental, social and physical challenges in an environment that cannot be replicated in school, students can flourish doing things that are completely new.
An environment where they have more than simply academic achievement by which to judge themselves.
Morning and afternoon session are split to provide as many different opportunities as possible during a stay.
Day 1: Arrive around lunchtime. Packed lunch bought by students. Afternoon spent pitching tents and activities such as archery, orienteering. Dinner
Day 2: A day divided between Via Ferrata, Abseiling and Park activities that can include conservation projects.

Day 4: A day of activities that can include, Greasy Pole, Coracles, Monkey Tree, Assault Course and Park activities.
Day 5: Initiative Exercises, strike camp. Lunch and departure.
