An education program that brings you up close and personal to Pembrokeshire

We have brought together a group of activities that will introduce you to our local environment, the geography, the history and its flora and fauna. The 3-5 day schedule will take you from Prehistoric times , through the stone age and more recent human history. At the same time you will explore the locality from the sea to the mountains here in Pembrokeshire and get a real feel for the flora, fauna, the celebrations and the threats to our beautiful landscape.

The program is flexible and takes in 3-5 days of structured activities,delivered by our own staff and partner operators. Due to the nature of course and class sizes we are able to target across a broad range of ages and abilities and tie into school key stage skills or anything up to university level. These courses are also available individual and it is not a requirement to be staying with us.

Many schools recognise Forest Schools and outdoor activity programs and similar establishments as legitimate education providers that can compliment your child's education. As such you may not be limited to visiting during school holiday times, please check with your schools guidelines to extracurricular activities.
