What is it all about?

Let's look at personal growth. We will use different activity-based learning activities to look at goal setting performance and review. We will work in teams and use both low and high ropes courses to develop cooperation, trust and problem-solving. We will examine safety requirements - physical and emotional. Correct belay technique will be an essential part of the programme. The adventure elements will be matched to the confidence and ability of the participants.
