From our helpful and friendly booking team to our experienced activity instructors, your Blackwell Adventure begins today! We support teachers visiting the centre from start to finish, from creating bespoke programmes, helping with travel arrangements and sending kit lists or simply helping you to move luggage when you arrive. Having run for over 11 years, our product is above and beyond and our low cost does not reflect the high quality product, we have options to suit all budgets. We have over 150 schools who have been returning to Blackwell for many years and we feel our packages offer fantastic value for money -

Activities – On our 2.5 Day package you will do around 16 hours of activities and we do not have any exclusions so they will experience a wide variety of bases to suit all abilities.

Evening – We also run activities in the evening such as orienteering, toasting marshmallows around the camp fire or cooling off in our outdoor swimming pool.

Catering – The food here is highly rated by our customers as its home cooked and very tasty. Food choices would include cooked breakfast, sandwiches for lunch , lasagne or homemade pizza then for pudding homemade chocolate brownies.

Support – As a member of the LOTC we ensure your learning outcomes are met. We also provide a group co-ordinator from the beginning of your stay, who is there to ensure you have a great time and can help with anything from washing sleeping bags to making hot chocolate if the kids need a warm up.

Service – We want to make the whole process as easy as possible for you, so we will always be here to help and will come to your School to do a presentation to parents and children to show what their experience will entail and the benefits.
