What we offer
X Adventure specailises in personal and team development programmes for schools and youth groups. We use adventurous outdoor activities to facilitate group and individual challenge, personal development and team bonding. Each visit is completely tailored to the aims and objectives of the group and we deliver all of this at our fantastic development Centre on the outskirts of Norwich.
We work in consultation with every group to ensure we deliver an engaging programme which enables each participant the opportunity to make consequential decisions, to develop clear principles of working together, boost personal confidence, boost self-belief with a clear emphasis on reinforcing positive learning experiences.
We have an experienced staff team who are passionate not only about the outdoors but also about making a difference to the guests who visit out Centre. Many schools and groups use us for their transition programmes, enrichment programmes, NEET programmes and personal development programmes.
The venue has a number of adventurous activities, including;
First aid training
The Development Centre has some fantastic outdoor activities but also has some great additional indoor space, with a team room capable of seating up to 40 people for conferences, training or team briefing, a lounge and tuck shop, a dining room seating 40 people and a fully fitted self-catering kitchen. We also have a large shower and toilet block, dormitory accommodation for up to 36. We also have a tented village capable of accommodating up to 80.
We also deliver day trips and residential trips throughout the UK; including North Wales, The Peak District and Scotland, delivering activities such as coasteering, Gorge scrambling, rock climbing, mountaineering and canoeing. We can organise the complete trip from start to finish.
We can also offer as an approved activity provider DofE expeditions at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels either on foot or by canoe.
What makes us a great choice?
We have a unique site that feels like you have stepped into nature. We are surrounded by wildlife and the positive feedback on the location from schools and groups is focused on how the young people feel relaxed at the Centre.
Our organisational ethos is focused on development and we positively challenge the groups who visit our Centre; without a doubt this approach gets proven results and each participant gains from this rewarding experience.
A unique part of our service also allows us to deliver activities at different venues allowing us to be completely mobile; we can deliver activities at your school, canoeing on a local river or climbing on a local crag; this part of our service is completely flexible and a great addition for many yearlong school or group programmes.

The youth participants have ranged from extremely vulnerable youth at risk to leadership potential and in full education. Adrian and has team have managed each particular group with professionalism, kindness, excellent health and safety management and have been able to manage and support us with any crisis that has developed. The company will always go the extra mile to meet the needs of our charity and the participants.
