Where all paths lead to adventure…

With over 35 activities to choose from, we’ll make sure your group has amazing adventures they’ll never forget. We’re experts in bringing out the best in young people and have years of experience in delivering tailored trips. We know that the benefits of away days and residential visits can be life changing.

The great outdoors - and great outcomes

Taking children out of their usual environment can be a brilliant way to encourage them to grow, learn and step up to new challenges. A trip to one of our centres provides the opportunity to have adventures that aren’t possible in a hall or classroom.

At our centres, children of all ages and abilities develop new skills in a unique environment as they increase their confidence, change their perspective by broadening their horizons, develop better team working and communication skills, and improve health and fitness. And it’s not only the children that benefit. A good residential experience can have a lasting impact on the whole group by increasing cohesion and strengthening relationships.

We had a fabulous three days for the Hopwood Hall College 4th year residential with the Skills for Life students. Great staff. Loved the snack shack this year around the fire.

Tailored trips at the right price

We recognise that one size doesn’t fit all. This is why we can create bespoke packages for your group that meet your needs and can be tailored completely to your budget, whether for a day trip or residential stay.

How do we link to the curriculum?

We specialise in affordable activity breaks for school groups, including day and residential trips, and we place emphasis on the benefits of learning outside the classroom. The activities we offer are tied into learning and development at key stages 2 and 3 of the national curriculum, as well as the ten key outcomes as specified by the English Outdoor Council.

We are proud supporters of the Brilliant Residentials campaign, making the case for high-quality residential learning.

A safe space

Of course we want you and your group to have fun, be challenged and take appropriate risks. Our first priority is always to keep you safe. Our fully qualified, accredited staff will be on hand to support you during your visit and full risk assessments can be provided to support planning your trip.

Book your visit

Planning an activity day or residential trip can be stressful and time-consuming – that’s why we’re here to help. By choosing one of our centres, you are already on the right track.
