PROGRESSIVE ACTIVITY PROGRAMS

We'll put together a progressive activity programme for your students over a term or school year in a range of activities to build resilience, confidence and a passion for adventure. They'll achieve certification and qualifications.

  • CAVING 
    Students get to explore progressively more adventurous caves in the Mendip Hills and even South Wales learning about geology, exploration and even ropework.
     

  • PADDLESPORTS
    Students can learn to kayak, paddle board and canoe over several sessions and finish the programme with an exciting river expedition on a local river such as the River Avon or River Exe. Students can achieve the British Canoeing Paddle Explore or Paddle Start award.
     

  • ROCK CLIMBING
    On a climbing programme, students will climb and abseil on a wide range of venues throughout Somerset and, by the end of the course, be able to safely climb with a partner with minimal supervision.
     

  • SKIING
    The only snowsports slope in Somerset, perfect for students about to head on a ski trip. We'll put together a package of lessons to help them make the most of their trip. Lessons are run at a ratio of 1:8 and we can have three beginner skiing lessons and one beginner snowboarding lessons taking place simultaneously.
     

  • ORIENTEERING
    Orienteering is a sport designed for teams to navigate an unfamiliar terrain between checkpoints using a map in the quickest time possible. It aids team building, leadership and decision-making skills in a fun and exciting endeavour that challenges teams to discover the most efficient route to win.
