Adventure Summer Camp July & August 2021
If your children are looking for outdoor adventure during the summer holidays, look no further than the Christ College Summer Adventure Camp.
Making the most of the mountains, lakes and woodland of the Brecon Beacons, children aged 10-16 will have the choice of a range of activities such as canoeing and raft building, high ropes and archery, rock climbing, abseiling as well as gorge walking and even some forest navigation.
This is an opportunity for children to have fun, build new friendships and enjoy a great sense of achievement as they explore beautiful places and harness their spirt of adventure.
If you are looking for your children to enjoy some quality time outdoors with other young people, then this camp will be ideal.
Based at Christ College, we make full use of the surrounding areas nearby. Children will have the best of both worlds: adventure during the day and comfort and relaxation time 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!
Camps are one week residential. There is also an option to participate on a daily basis.
