Devons Most Exciting Adventure Centre

What a Bronze package could look like?

A typical bronze package consists of six days of activity. Initially there will be two days of skills training. The first day will be spent learning basic first aid, how to use a portable cooker, packing of a Rucksack, Route card writing and environmental awareness. The second day will be spent with a suitably qualified instructor practicing basic navigation and applying those new skills and role playing emergency scenarios.

These two days will be followed by a practice expedition that will run over two days and will require a night out camping. Teams will work closely with an instructor on the first day but will move to more remote supervision on the second day. Our staff will be on site camping with the groups.

There will then be a final, qualifying expedition. This will also take place over two days and the team will be remotely supervised by experienced instructors throughout. Our staff will be on site camping with the groups.
We are also able to tailor each package to suit your needs and are happy to base each session at locations convenient for you. Feel free to use the contact us form requirements with us.

What people say rock and rapid

"Great rainy day activity for all the family"

Bouldering centre private hire

As a family of five who like to try new things, I can’t recommend this enough. The staff member who helped us was top class. Friendly, accommodating and keen. Although, we were all at different levels of experience, some of us complete notices at climbing – we all managed to spend an enjoyable couple of hours.

"Great place and great staff"

We visited this whole on our holiday on a rainy day, my son enjoyed it so much he wanted to go back so we did. Twice! The staff are super friendly and very knowledgable. We will no doubt be back next year!
