Young Persons Summer Camps (age 12-17)

We've been running our adventure sports summer camp for young people (12-17 yrs) for many years. That experience has helped us identify the most important ingredient in outdoor learning - Fun. On our summer camp, all our courses focus on providing maximum enjoyment whilst learning and developing outdoor skills, with each of our highly qualified instructors a true enthusiast, keen to pass on their skills as well as their unique approach to the outdoors. Once again we're running a range of young persons skills courses taking up the entire Plas y Brenin building. On our adventure sporst summer camp, you will be surrounded by people of your own age and interests. In addition to instruction, you will always have male and female members of staff close at hand, to sort out any problems or answer any questions. In the evening, our staff organise a wide range of other events, quizzes, competitions and activities including orienteering, low ropes courses, kayak races, mountain bike sessions, climbing competitions and raft building experiences. So why not join us for a summer camp with more than a hint of adventure this summer.
