Day Visits

"I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees"

Henry David Thoreau

A day visit to GWC is a great way to build rapport, support the curriculum and reward your group / class / year for all their hard work. 

A fun day learning outdoors will inject enthusiasm and energy into your young people, giving them a better understanding of themselves and others.  Even excellent classroom teaching is enhanced by good quality learning outside the classroom. 

A day visit works well if budget or time prevents a group coming on a residential trip to GWC. Some groups also use this as an opportunity to introduce younger pupils to adventurous activities in the years preceding a residential trip with us.

Our day programmes can be tailor made to support any aspect of the curriculum or group work.

The following activities are available for a day visit;

  • Climbing
  • High Ropes
  • Low Ropes
  • Archery
  • Sailing
  • Canoeing
  • Kayaking
  • Raft building
  • Orienteering
  • Grafham Challenge
  • Initiative and communication exercises
