Why are Govilon Activity Centre great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

Our aim is to provide the children and adults visiting us with a safe, educational and enjoyable experience. We use a variety of traditional Outdoor Education methods and couple these with the residential experiences of living and working together in close proximity.

Our approach is non-confrontational, friendly and supportive. Participants aren't pushed into any situation with which they are uncomfortable. Each situation is explained and agreed in advance and anyone may opt out. We aim to encourage young people to challenge themselves and reach goals they could not imagine possible.

What size groups do you cater for?

The newly refurbished centre offers warm, comfortable, bunkhouse style affordable accommodation.

The centre can accommodate up to 38 visitors with a variety of sleeping options including twin rooms, a room of 4, 2 rooms of 6 and a favourite with a lot of schools a room with 16 bunk beds.

Is there first aid on site?

Yes, all centre staff are first aid qualified.

Do you offer access for visitors with disabilities?

Yes - Ground floor bedrooms and newly refurbished disabled toilet, shower and washroom facilities at either end of the building.

Anything else?

Rather than selling a package off the shelf, each course is designed in consultation with the lead teacher, EVC or headteacher allowing us to tailor each course individually.
