Reach Outdoors ran a residential camp for our Second Form, over 2 nights and two days, letting them experience bushcraft, climbing, orienteering, pioneering, kayaking and teambuilding. They also threw in a generous amount of wide games and walks in the local area. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed all the activities, and they were buzzing throughout.
The Reach Staff themselves were amazing, not only super keen and incredibly knowledgeable in the areas they were operating in, but also they were fantastic with our pupils. They struck up a great relationship with the pupils from the offset, and this was echoed throughout the camp. Similarly they made the lives of our school staff so much easier by being super organised, always coming up with ideas, and always wanting to be involved.
I was so impressed, as was all of the staff team that worked with Reach. Their boundless enthusiasm and excellent range of skills perfectly fulfilled our requirements, and I am planning to book them for the same activity next year. Alex Stuart, Cokethorpe School, Witney
