School Trips @ Pro-Active Adventure

Home / Residentials Wales / Gwynedd

Pro-Active Adventure is a respected and experienced provider of Outdoor Education. The company was formed in 2000 so we have many years experience of providing residential outdoor breaks to schools. All our instructors are widely experienced and hold National Governing Body Awards in the activities they lead and have at least three years post qualifying experience, all are also multi disciplinary (They hold more than two qualifications in different skills) This means they can stay with their group for the duration of their residential and the school does not have to swap between instructors. This means a more trusting relationship is developed with their instructor and the pupils tend to try new things more comfortably thus more confidence is gained from taking part in more challenging activities. We cater for all age groups and all levels of ability. There are also numerous historical and places of interest close by for teachers to run self-led activities in the evenings.

All activity sessions last half a day so there are two activity sessions per day. Activities normally start at 9:00, we stop for a packed lunch about 12:30 and start again about 13:00 and finish in the evening about 16:00. There is an optional extra of an evening activity which runs from 18:00 to 19:30.
