Secondary schools and youth groups

Thrills and skills above the Water

Our activities and programmes are designed to help young people experience the satisfaction of completing new challenges in life. We encourage communication, collaboration and competition, developing an understanding of how to succeed in different activities and how to evaluate and recognise success. While safety is our priority, fun is our philosophy!

We can organise GCSE P.E. Adventurous Activities – indoor climbing incorporating the NICAS scheme.
