Usually for youth groups only we have special permission for a mixed age group so that the whole family has the opportunity to enjoy a varied programme of canoe coaching and trips, bushcraft, camp craft, tracking (inc. many Deer and Wild Boar!) nature awareness and camp-fire-side craft activities led by a team of experienced and enthusiastic instructors.
We can accommodate unaccompanied children (but not adults) All instructors are DBS checked and two trained welfare officers are on site. There are nearby campsites and BandB's if parents want to stay locally and 'call in'. Collection from local public transport can be arranged and there will be a limited amount of communal tent space available.
