All our Activities are based on site so there are no coach transfers between activities, just a short stroll through the woodland from your Accommodation to each of the Activities. We offer a wide range of Activities and Teams rotate around the different activities during the week long programme.

One of the Highlights of the week is the full day expedition which includes a 10 mile hike to an Iron Age Hill Fort. 

Brave our Quick Jump

Each evening there is a camp fire, and opportunities for Teams to discuss the days activities and plan for activities and challenges to come as part of the 4 week NCS programme.


What our customers say

On behalf of myself and all the staff here I would like to send our sincere appreciation for your efforts this week in giving us and the students a wonderful time considering the weather. We all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Mark Gamble -Saints Foundation Education Manager -Nov 18

Very good centre staff, incredible communication. The instructors were very good at including everyone, and pushing them to everyone's individual limits. Campfire was a brilliant way of getting whole wave to bond together and everyone to join in.

NCS The Challenge - Summer 17

A quick note to say Thank You for hosting our group this weekend. Georgia has fed back how great your staff were in adapting their language and approach to the YP we had on this NCS, particularly to the staff who played football and cards with the YP, it’s simple things like this that show the YP they are valued and helps it run smoothly.

Rachael Clarke - NCS Leicestershire

From what I hear the weekend was excellent and despite poor weather, you all kept the young people in very high spirits as we had them all raving about the weekend as they came onto Phase 2!
