The team support and run things so well that as young carer keyworkers we can focus on encouraging our young people and supporting social skills. (June 2019 - Secondary)

Definitely a 5 star experience for everyone involved. The staff could not do more to ensure that our stay was successful, they were all accommodating and adapted to any change in plans or circumstances. The instructors supported all of our pupils - encouraging those who were apprehensive, extending those who needed it, excellent discipline, setting a fabulous example. (June 2019 - Primary)

Accommodation would be improved with showers in each cabin, having 21 boys trying to shower with the 2 showers in the shared block took a very long time. (June 2019 - Primary)

Well organised and staffed. (May 2019 - Primary)

Very good day. One problem was concerning canoeing activity. We went to a different part of the river than usual to access the canoes. We had to walk down some narrow, steep concrete steps. This was a dangerous way to get down considering we have some very uncoordinated children with us, two of whom have cerebral palsy. (May 2019 - Secondary)

A very valuable learning experience for the children. Encouraging and dedicated staff. The only small criticism I would mention was lack of provision if a child falls into the river whilst canoeing. We had 3 children fall in and there was no dry clothing available- we had to ask for dry clothing to be delivered from school. It was a good thing it was a warm day. Next year we will all bring spares. (June 2018 - Secondary)
