Our aim:

To provide opportunities which challenge our groups both physically and mentally via a program of adventurous activities in a safe and controlled manner.

We do this jointly by identifying your requirements and then building an appropriate course of activities for you.

Each activity we offer allows us to follow our ethos of:

‘Discovering yourself and your community’

‘Exploring a magical environment of mountains, rivers and sea shore’

‘Caring for yourself, your friends and your environment’

Activities range from Team building, Problem Solving, Rock Climbing & Abseiling, Kayaking, Canoeing, Sea Kayaking, Gorge Scrambling, Coasteering, Sea Level Traversing, Hill Walking.

We are used to linking these activities to various areas within your curriculums from key stage 3 up to GCSE levels.

Bookings:

The procedure commences with us discussing in detail what you want your pupils to get out of the trip. We will then send you our Operating procedures and Risk & Benefit Assessments.

We are happy to organise site visits if required or come along to school to help with a presentation session of the course.

Right through to the completion of the course and afterwards you will have the same contact to help in any arising matters.

Accommodation:

Courses are normally offered on a non residential basis although we can offer self catering accommodation on-site in our bunkhouse or for those wishing a real experience by camping on our small 1 acre site (ideal for GCSE Hill walking or college BTEC courses).

We highly recommend a number of local Youth Hostels; namely the Snowdon Ranger Youth Hostel (sitting at the foot of mount Snowdon) or the Bryn Gwynant Youth Hostel.

To discuss your requirement please contact us either via email or telephone: 01286 650643.


Bach Ventures would like to remind you that participation in outdoor pursuits is fun but does involve an element of risk. That although at all time you will be under the guidance of qualified instructors, participating in outdoor activities can be hazardous as all activities are dangerous and accidents can occur.
