Personal Development
A fun, challenging environment
  •  Mini management training course
  •  Many outdoor pursuits offered as a double session (3 hours)
  •  Briefing and debriefing analysis
  •  Team building, leadership and personal development training

Our Personal Development Course has been developed for schools and was adapted from our successful management training courses, which we previously operated for "Blue Chip" companies.

We try to encourage our quiet and more reserved guests to express themselves and encourage our over-zealous youngsters to listen and appreciate the suggestions and opinions of others before making their own contribution. Children learn quickly in a fun, challenging environment developing and progressing in a surprisingly short time.

Obstacle Course · Raft Building · Survival Skills · Blind Trail · 20 Initiative Exercises · Orienteering · Bivouac Exercise · Non verbal Communication · Expedition Experience · Climbing · Abseiling · Crate Stacking · Compass Work · Artificial Caving System
