"This is the fifth year we have used Oakerwood as a venue for our Year 6 residential and I cannot praise David and his team enough. They make each visit memorable for all our children giving them the best experience on a wide range of outdoor and adventurous activities. All the staff ensure that every one feels valued whilst pushing them to their limits providing excitement and challenge." Wyche Primary School - Malvern
Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?
We offer tailor made itineraries from our diverse range of adventurous activities including High Ropes, Low Ropes, Rafting, Pizza Making, Den Building, Target Shooting, It's a Knock Out, Quad Bike Trekking and Paintball.

They will have ample opportunity to improve their listening skills and build on their independence while on a residential with us as we encourage young people to be responsible for their own pod area and to help around camp with such tasks as washing up and fire lighting.
