At Barton Camp I tried caving for the first time ever and it was amazing. I overcame my fears!

During the school holidays we take groups of young people on residential trips away. Here they try a variety of activities from outdoor pursuits such as canoeing, caving, and climbing, right through to forest survival skills, team building exercises, and building fires. 

We camp, or stay in accommodation, and young people are encouraged to get involved in planning and reflecting on activities we do. We even get some cooking and doing the washing up!

Going away as a group is a great opportunity to get young people away from their environment, get some fresh air, and broaden their horizons, and set some challenges to take them out of their comfort zone.

We regularly visit Barton Camp in Winscombe.

School holiday time only.
