Activities at Skern Lodge mean a lot more than fun and adventure.


The Skern environment is ideal for developing children’s personal and social skills. Team building, problem solving and communication, combined with the range of exciting activities, gives young people the best experience they can have.  Add the residential aspect to this and their time spent living and working together enhances their development even further.  Skills not only valuable in the classroom, playground and on the sports field, but also in the workplace in the future.
