Summer Adventures

Invitation to a Week of Adventures

Bryntysilio is a thriving adventure education centre on the outskirts of Llangollen North Wales.  During term time we welcome school groups as part of their education to Brynty.  In the summer we invite those students back who would like a little more adventure!  We have one week available, where we have invited a handful of known schools back with the dates and costs below.  Furthermore, on the next page, we have put together a quality programme that ensures the students will have a great time, have a sense of independence potentially lost in COVID-19 lockdowns and develop themselves, resilience, confidence, social connections and well-being.
