The Centre provides a natural setting for personal development, through sport and adventure, study and reflection. We offer a safe, supportive and stimulating environment for youngsters from all walks of life, including those with a range of disabilities.
We are passionate about transforming the lives of young people, inspiring them to grow in mind, body and spirit. Team leaders and our own trained instructors challenge and motivate participants through a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, building confidence and encouraging cooperation.
