Teenagers in Nature

NCS Phase 1 Residentials

We have been working with young people on phase 1 residential programmes since the inception of the NCS scheme.  We love that the core themes of developing individuals in terms of their confidence, resilience, and endeavour fit perfectly with our own ethos.  Established since 1976 we have a wealth of experience in motivating young people, and building teams using outdoor programmes. 


It's actual Adventure....

We pride ourselves on the fact that our activities are genuinely adventurous! 


We are situated in one of the finest outdoor playgrounds, as the North Devon area gives us some of the most diverse geographical areas to go and have fun. 


Our 22 acre site perched on the edge of the Atlantic provides a fantastic base to begin the NCS journey.


Each programme is individually tailored to your needs. 


We appreciate that not every group needs the same thing, or has the same budget, so we will endeavour to work out your best programme as opposed to a standard course. 


Some of the activities available include abseiling, climbing, high ropes, archery, artificial caving, kayaking, rafting, surfing, coastal traversing, team challenges, bushcraft, overnight camps and many more.
