Summer Adventure Camps August 2024
If your 10-17 year old children are looking for outdoor adventure during the summer holidays, come and join the Christ College Summer Adventure Camps.
Aiming for everyone to have fun, make new friends as well build confidence and leadership skills with their peers, our adventure camps are made up of a wide range of activities taking place in the local mountains, rivers and woodland of the Brecon Beacons and the Gower coastline.
Adventure, sport and cultural activities will be part of the camps and will include high ropes, zip wire, climbing & abseiling surfing on the Gower coast followed by a coastal scramble, gorge walking as well as our new adventurous activity of Supakarting. A number of multi-team sports competitions will also be enjoyed as well as the choice of art, cartoon illustration or music making. This year also sees the new options of golf or horse riding. A supplemental fee is payable for horse riding.
This is an opportunity to have fun, build new friendships and enjoy a great sense of achievement as children challenge themselves in new way and harness their spirt of adventure away from home.
Based at Christ College, we make full use of the surrounding areas nearby and further afield along the Gower coastline. Children will have the best of both worlds: adventure during the day, an evening programme of fun and relaxation at night back at the boarding house.
Activities are gently challenging and aimed at encouraging teamwork and having fun. As a parent you are offered complete reassurance that your children are enjoying themselves in the great outdoors. As children, you will have fun and a great adventure!
If you are looking for your children to enjoy some quality time outdoors with other young people, then this camp will be ideal.

The Brecon Beacons National Park is one of the premier locations in the UK to enjoy a wide range of adventurous activities such as gorge walking, rock climbing, canoeing, raft building and abseiling. Take a look at some of the activities that may be included in the summer camp for 2024.
Surfing & Coastal Scramble
Have fun in the sea and surf of the Gower coastline and learn from experts how to manage and stand on your surfboard and travel with the waves for most of a day followed by a coastal scramble to explore the beach.
High Level Ropes, Zip Wire, Climbing & Abseiling
Unleash your inner Tarzan with our high-level ropes and zip wire course. Equipped with a safety harness and climbing helmet, camp goers will attempt several rope challenges starting from ground level up to 30ft high, including the balance log, trapeze bar and cow tails. Next, check out the range of routes on the climbing wall and learn how to abseil. Will you attempt the vertical take off? Don’t worry, instructors and team mates are there to gently encourage and keep a close eye at all times. Campers will then swing to the finish line with an 80 metre zip wire.
A firm favourite amongst our camp-goers, this immensely popular activity includes jumps, slides, swims and an array of challenges. Wearing wetsuits, buoyancy aid and water helmet you will follow an instructor to embark on a journey heading upstream of the river, exploring behind waterfalls, jumping off ledges and jumping into deep pools.
Brand new to our summer camp this year is karting. To get adrenaline pumping we’ll be going to Newport’s number one indoor go-karting centre where you will enjoy racing on the largest and fastest track in Wales.
Despite busy and action packed days, students will enjoy free time to relax in the grounds or in the boarding house with supervision at all times. There will also be a full programme of evening activities in which to participate and round off each day.
Excellent facilities include extensive sports fields, heated swimming pool, sports hall, tennis and squash courts, all-weather sports pitch, 9 hole golf course, a performance hall.
Social events include, camp fires, parachute games, team challenges, treasure hunts, quizzes and an end of camp party.
