These also provide aesthetically pleasing times but the emphasis is on learning particular technical skills:
Mountain biking (learn the skills of riding ‘Off-road’…cornering,breaking,use of gears and weight distribution…getting muddy).
Mountain Training Lowland Leader Award (Train to facilitate guided walks, D of E courses etc.) We provide both training and assessment courses.
Canoeing and kayaking (Paddling locally and learning skills and how to be safe on moving water).
Winter Mountaineering ( Scotland or North Wales are venues used. Learning safe movement in the hills in winter…use of ice axe and crampons, navigation skills and predicting possible avalanche conditions).
All the above skills courses build resilience, problem solving techniques,coping with challenge and opportunities for meeting and engaging with other people.
