Re-connect Programme

Alongside our standard programmes we have developed a day visit for primary and secondary aged children aimed specifically at re-bonding, team working and resilience following the unprecedented period of school absence.

The programme involves a whole day spent outdoors focused on activities which bring the group together to re-establish group bonds and rebuild resilience.  We start with a variety of climbing and high ropes challenges promoting resilience and breaking fear barriers, followed by problem solving activities focused on team communication and decision making.  Keeping the session light hearted and fun focussed allows participants time to also re-connect with their classmates.
