Every year Primary Schools come from all over County Durham and beyond to experience an adventure like no other. We pride ourselves on building confidence and resolve amongst our young adventurers, and we have no doubts that they go home more confident, and with a sense of achievement like they may never have experienced before. Standing at the face of a cliff or looking down a waterfall, it is easy to doubt yourself, but with a little encouragement and some self belief it is amazing what these young people can do! I am surprised every week, and the victory is not about getting to the top or jumping off the highest waterfall, the victory is about learning to believe in yourself. For us one step off the ground is just as impressive as reaching the top!
Seeing that sense of achievement in the young person's eyes is incredibly rewarding. I will never tire of that.
