Why Use the Natural Environment of Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons)?

Use of the natural environment through adventure activities can make a unique contribution to personal growth through sharing experience, improving self confidence, exploring personal beliefs, attitudes and values whilst living and learning with one’s peers.

“We had a fantastic time with you. Everyone – children and staff – came back exhilarated and keen to pursue the activities they had started to learn. As a veteran of many school camps, I can honestly say that you thought of, and took care of our every need – even quite personal ones! The activities were great, with the right level of challenge and many parents report that their children’s self-esteem has rocketed! The children themselves can’t stop talking about the trip, and ‘sawsome’ is now part of the class vocabulary!” Louise Bray, Burlsecombe School
