With modern facilities set in rustic woodland on famous Dartmoor, your base for this adventure uses nature itself to create amazing activity camps.

From the moment your group arrives in one of the country’s finest National Parks to the moment they leave, there will be non-stop adventure from wild camping and hill walking to canyoning and rock climbing at Haytor. Not to mention splashing around in the on-site swimming pool and the evenings toasting marshmallows around the firepit

We have provided challenging, team building trips for school and youth groups for over twenty years and every year we add new and exciting activities.

Students will take part in a variety of activities, learn new life skills and create lifetime memories with their friends. All with the help of our friendly and fully trained Instructors.  

What size groups do we cater for?

At our Dartmoor site, bunkhouse and cabin accommodation will sleep up to 70 plus leaders. Plus, there is an additional camping field – with space for up to 80 campers.

Please contact us for your exact requirements.

What does a typical school trip or educational visit include?

We can offer your school or group a completely bespoke residential experience. Our friendly team will work with you to plan any specific learning outcomes you hope to achieve.

However, from our 20 years’ experience, we have put together some tailored packages that include all the activities that your group is likely to want to try!

Our staff team are highly qualified in a wide range of outdoor activities and we pride ourselves on our customer service. 

One of the important aspects of any residential is for young people to make their own decisions. Our staff are always on hand to oversee these decisions to ensure the safety of the groups, but it is important that we don’t interfere too much and allow them to make mistakes which can be reviewed and corrected for future improvement.

We feel that this modern style of coaching is key to our success and why our clients’ believe we offer a high quality residential experience.

We offer 1 free staff place per 10 students
