Jim was really helpful from the outset.  Nothing seemed to be too much trouble & he was great with the children.  

The care and attention given to us as a school and all the children individually was brilliant.  

I have not taken school children to a better residential experience.  The instructors & all staff at Skern Lodge are responsible for this - thank you.
