Mount Cook Adventure Centre


Pushing Boundaries, Opening Minds.

Description

Mount Cook is a not-for-profit organisation based in Wirksworth, Derbyshire. We are dedicated to providing exciting outdoor activities and learning experiences for children and young people.

We know that the best outcomes in outdoor learning are achieved when the activities we offer relate to your desired outcomes and classroom teaching, whilst encouraging positive personal and social development. Our wide range of exciting outdoor activities, from high ropes and archery, to bush craft and water sports, are designed to develop key skills such as teamwork, communication and resilience, boost attainment and promote intellectual curiosity.

Our purpose-built Centre offers modern, en-suite accommodation for 140 guests, with accommodation for a further 40 guests offered in our unique, wooden Glamping Pods. Full catering is provided in our impressive glass-fronted Main Dining Hall, serving delicious home-cooked food to keep energy levels up throughout your stay!

Great accommodation / food / some excellent instructors. Would like to include some off site activities next time (July 2019 - Primary School)
Provider Response: Thank you so much for your review, we hope that we see you again soon where we can include some offsite activities for you!



Small and lacking in seating/cover for most of the outdoor team tasks, but the fact that only one other school attended and the superb attentiveness of the manager and most leaders resulted in a superb visit which achieved our goals. (May 2019 - Primary School)
