Pendine Outdoor Education Centre specialises in residential actvity packages for young people.
The School residential groups traditionally visit Pendine for a curriculum linked five-day activity package from Monday to Friday to undertake a programme of outdoor pursuits and environmental studies. Shorter stays and day visits are also available.
The activities are led by centre staff who have a wealth of experience and qualifications in varying fields including Geography, PE and Science teachers, Mountaineering, Climbing and Canoe instructors.
All staff are qualified to, at least the minimum requirement for the relevant National Governing Bodies for the Adventure Activities. All staff are also First Aid qualified. On booking, schools are sent a pack containing visit guidelines, information to parents as well as medical forms, safety information, kit list etc.
We encourage teachers from new schools to come and have a look around the Centre before booking and we offer a service where we visit new schools to do a presentation to parents and teachers.
3 and 4 day courses are also becoming popular, especially in the ‘fringe season’ when discounts may be available.
A carefully planned evening programme enhances the experience with Team building games, Night Orienteering, Marshmallows around the open fire in the Oak roundhouse, swimming and Disco.
Non Residential Courses
The Centre also provides day courses which schools sometimes use as a ‘taster’ for the younger pupils, the itinerary can include any of the activities offered on the residential courses.
Off Site Expeditions
These have become popular over the past 5 or 6 years and we now take a number of schools on day trips to Pen y Fan and the Preseli hills as well as weekend expeditions to Snowdonia and Mid Wales.
We also offer open canoe journeys down the Taf and the Teify and will consider preparing any bespoke journey with our experience and qualifications.
