We like to offer our customers the best experience during their visit or stay. Therefore, we like to have an energetic, motivated and friendly team where we all work together to ensure everyone has a great time.

Before, during and after activity sessions it is the Instructors responsibility to set up and pack down the equipment and activities used and ensure that all participants are safe and are taking part in accordance with the centre's health and safety requirements. Instructors will also help ensure the safe running of the site through kit care and kit logs.
