We believe in getting back to basics and using the real, natural environment for our activity sessions, including lakes, mountains, rivers, beaches, crags and caves.

Over 35 years, we have built up an excellent reputation for safety and delivering quality activity programmes and now have 11 accreditations and hundreds thousands of customers travelling with us each year.

Our traditional pre-erected camping villages are designed to give our groups their own private space for sleeping, eating and socialising, to encourage a real ‘community spirit’. This is a really easy environment for teachers/leaders to monitor their group and make sure everyone is safe and having a good time.
