Due to the pandemic some staff were new and inexperienced. We experienced some leaks in parts of the building. (June 2022 - Primary School)




(June 2022 - Primary School)




We visited the same venue last year and had a much better experience. Last year the group leader was more engaging and captured the boys imaginations. This year, the boys freely explored the woods which they enjoyed, however, we do feel a little more structure and planned activities was needed. Before visiting the venue, activities were discussed but they were not carried out. (June 2022 - Primary School)




Could have been better but due to lack of staff, poor toilets and damaged tents it was not. (June 2022 - Primary School)




The Year 2 and 3 children enjoyed their visit and the activities were fun, engaging and enjoyable. (June 2022 - Primary School)

They were a good company and professional, however, I do think we could have offered the activities we did at school bar one. (June 2021 - Primary School)




Considering we were one of the first groups to be using the site again the trip was good.

There is always a lot of time spent waiting around and the time needs to be more structured with tasks. Also some of the tasks lacked energy and enthusiasm from the group leaders. The wall climbing was excellent and was the high light of the trip. (June 2021 - Secondary School)
