Personal Development

  • Mini management training course
  • Many outdoor pursuits offered as a double session (3 hours)
  • Briefing and debriefing analysis
  • Team building, leadership and personal development training

Our Personal Development Course has been developed for schools and was adapted from our successful management training courses, which we previously operated for "Blue Chip" companies.

We try to encourage our quiet and more reserved guests to express themselves and encourage our over-zealous youngsters to listen and appreciate the suggestions and opinions of others before making their own contribution. Children learn quickly in a fun, challenging environment developing and progressing in a surprisingly short time.

Personal Development Course Benefits

" Many of the activities used during this course are part of our Superbreak Adventure course, but taught and run in a different way. For example, raft building can be a fun activity, to build a raft and get to the other side of a lake, or it can become an activity to develop team building skills, leadership skills, listening & communication skills and problem solving. For this reason a single activity session on Superbreak Adventure requires a double session on this course."
