Likely Itinerary

(We do change activities to suit the group and weather, so everyone gets the most out of the experience)

We are super flexible on pick-ups and drop-offs.  In fact, we’d encourage parents/carers to leave their car at Bryntysilio and have a walk themselves – it really is stunning.  

We ask for Saturday drop-offs between 1pm and 6pm and Friday collections between 1pm and 3pm (we’ll feed the young people lunch before they go)

Want the memories to last longer?

Each activity group’s instructor will take a camera with them so that they can record the trip and create memories of each activity. At the end of the week we use a simple online file sharing service so they can access them upon their return home.

A Summer Camp that gives you extra!

Every child that comes to stay with us for a week during summer will be given thier own Brynty Hoody to remember their time here when they head home on the final day.
