Abseiling

A descent from any of our purpose built towers is an experience not to be missed.

It’s a great activity for conquering fears and getting people out of their comfort zones. It’s very popular with primary and secondary schools and team building groups. Our instructors will guide you down a controlled descent working on trust, confidence and overcoming fears.

Physical education

Outdoor adventure activities help to build fitness and promote physical wellbeing. They also help with concentration, improve teamwork and communication skills. Many activities allow for personal development too, helping children and young people realise their potential and building confidence. Getting active in the outdoors helps improve motivation and self-esteem.

Communication & Listening skills

Being able to hear something, process it and formulate a favourable response in a short space of time.
We’ve developed a range of activities where groups have to learn to communicate and listen to one another to ensure tasks can be completed successfully.

Managing risk/Developing resilience

The ability to bounce back and thrive after disappointment or unmet expectations.
Through our activities, we give children and young people a chance to view setbacks as learning opportunities. Evaluating and planning helps a young person to think calmly and positively about a setback and helps build their confidence to try again.

Trust/Stronger relationships

Trust building activities help teams develop a level of understanding about their fellow group members and builds confidence in individuals as they learn to trust one another throughout their tasks.

Conquering personal challenges/Overcome fears

To think positively about tackling new challenges. The ability to take on challenges and overcome fears will help develop a “can do” approach to life. We give groups the chance to take on challenges in a safe affirming environment. It teaches life skills such as perseverance and resilience.

Self-confidence

Children and young people really come on in leaps and bounds on our residentials. Being away from home in a different environment, having to rely on their peers, trying new activities and finding their place within their group, gives a real boost to their confidence. They find skills they didn’t know they had.

Evaluate strengths and weaknesses

Developing strategies to make the most of your strengths and work through and improve your weaknesses. Our range of activities help identify strengths, the things that come naturally to a person and that they enjoy doing, and the things that don’t come so naturally. Perseverance in things that don’t come naturally helps build confidence and boosts self-esteem.

Growth in aspirations

The opportunity to try new activities can help develop and grow aspirations.
Getting everyone down the abseil tower or through the high ropes course puts the whole group on the same level of achievement. This helps young people realise their potential, sometimes for the very first time.
