Youth Work


Working with young people is very important to us and forms an integral part of our company’s ethos. As experienced teachers of Alternative Curriculum we find we are well able to develop strong working relationships with often difficult youngsters. For us, getting young people in the outdoors offers them a vehicle for change. Challenging behaviour, low self-esteem and self confidence are improved through safe and fun adventurous activities designed to meet the needs of your group.

Going away to Arran and working with the other guys taught me to control my temper, to be more patient and to work with others.’
