School Trips @ YMCA

Home / Residentials South East / Hampshire

At Fairthorne Manor, we use a wide variety of activity programmes to help develop life skills, stimulate learning and improve confidence.

Our programmes include water activities (kayaking, canoeing, raft building, bell boating), high ropes (climbing, abseiling, Jacob's Ladder, aerial runway and more), team sessions (blind trail, team challenge, obstacle course, initiative tests) and much more.

We appreciate the great importance of a group trip, recognising the value of the complete residential experience delivered to a high standard by our impressive staff team.

The YMCA Way brings together our values and our mission to deliver outstanding services.
