What we offer on a school trip
We offer a wide range of activities which can be incorporated into your bespoke programme. We place a great deal of importance upon the skills developed during these activities reflecting on what has been learnt at the end of each session.
A sample of our activities include: archery; low ropes; nightline; team building exercises; orienteering; woodland walk; pond dipping; rocket building; camp fire; scavenger hunt; swimming; pioneering; bushcraft; den building and new for 2017... Jacob's Ladder! This is a giant swinging ladder and is our most physical and challenging activity yet. It involves agility, great communication and strength. Up to 3 people climb at once with the rest of the team getting involved by holding the ropes and cheering their classmates on! Our fully qualified instructor team can work with groups of all ages and abilities.
