Just a few comments from our clients:
We had a very successful three days and achieved all of our course aims.
The caving was perfect and met the needs of the team. It pushed all into ‘stretch’ in one form or another and drew out a significant number of learning points.
The kayaking instructor was very good – excellent teaching methods and a very enjoyable session
The quality, quantity and cleanliness of the outdoor equipment were first class.
We felt the service provided by the outdoor staff was very good. All of you appeared comfortable to work with us and facilitate the learning.
Many thanks for a highly enjoyable and rewarding few days.
Cadet Officers, RAF Cranwell
Thank you for a wonderful day. The day was a great success and all my team thoroughly enjoyed it. What surprised me was how much they enjoyed the group problem solving exercises in the morning. They enjoyed having to work together as a team.

Thanks for a great time caving. We will keep an eye on your website for things to do next year.
Thanks for organising such a great day for all of us. The groom was absolutely delighted with the weekend, the highlight of which was the day in the Peaks you organised for us. He told me he enjoyed “absolutely every single minute of the trip” so we must have done something right! The caving was fantastic, a completely different world and one which only one of us had experienced before. The gorge scramble was also a lot of fun, a great end to the day. I doubt many of us had donned wellies in decades! We were still grinning (and shattered) on the Sunday.

I just wanted to say thank you very much for the canoeing activities on Saturday, everyone really enjoyed it, it was a great day out and just what we were after. I have to say I am covered in bruises from my small swim, but soon enough I’ll remember the fun bits!!

Student Year 12 feedback following a team building event for 120 participants
The teaching staff who attended the event do feel that the year group as a whole has started well and the students appear to be at ease in their new surroundings having done the Induction Programme.
The school staff commented that over the past year, since a similar event was organised last September for Year 12, the group seemed to settle more quickly into Sixth form life, and showed a greater interest in school life and took on greater responsibility throughout the school.
Andrea Chandler Head of Year 12 Sixth Form, Audenshaw School, Manchester, a Specialist Technology College
‘We have all had an amazing weekend, thank you.’
Caorunn Mitchell 50th Birthday Event
‘Thank you for a wonderful day and for being so helpful and building our confidence. See you next year’
Beccy, Rushcliffe Mental Health Support Group
‘Steve’s experience shone through and the children took to him immediately. He kept their attention and more importantly gained their trust which enabled them to attempt more than they normally would have. The children gained so much confidence and helped each other when they got a bit apprehensive. We will be booking further activities without hesitation.’
Lisa Longden and family
‘Just thought I would send a note to say how much we all enjoyed the two days of activities with you. We had a really good time and all felt we had gained something from the experience. Andy and Sarah really enjoyed climbing on real rock rather than the usual climbing wall and the trip in kayaks was a real hit with them. They are both keen to come back to the Peak District so you may see us again sometime in the future.’
Lynn Longhurst and family
‘Just a note to say that the children had a great day. The level of challenge was spot on.’
