Outdoor Education: Kayaking

Our speciality is providing flexible residential school breaks employing “Real Activities” in the outdoor environment that will engage and challenge pupils, to enable positive development in team work and confidence. We do not use plastic climbing walls or extensively use low level on-site activities, we offer real activities in the real outdoor environment for a real adventure experience! We pride ourselves on providing traditional outdoor education that is safe but has not removed all the excitement of challenging activities. To enable us to operate at such a high level we employ only the most experienced of instructors. All hold at least three years post qualification experience. Most hold many more years experience. Having such experienced instructors mean that your pupils will stay with the same instructor for the duration of their stay. This enables a greater level of trust to be developed and a greater level of achievement made by your pupils. Our instructors remain with us season after season, delivering continuity in professional practice. When they’re not working at one of the many activity delivery centres, you will find them out in the hills, rivers or rock faces of Wales and indeed the world, doing what they live and love. For our instructors this is not just a job it’s a way of life. “You have to live the dream to be able to share it!”
