We are passionate about the impact of outdoor learning on young people and about supporting young people to achieve their potential

Don’t just take our word for it…

100% of the profit generated by Bowles Learning & Development is donated to the Bowles Rocks Trust for the provision of educational programmes for young people

The course facilitator was excellent. He understood our goals and our business. We have found that we have converted the skills we learnt back into the workplace. The course has been a springboard to other targets and broken down lots of barriers – I spoke to my colleagues more during our time at Bowles than I have over the last six months. We can’t wait to revisit!

The great thing about Bowles is that it offers an outstanding opportunity to explore learning in an exciting, yet comfortable, environment. The facilitation is excellent and the food is fabulous! Through working with Bowles we are able to provide the opportunity for leaders in our business to explore the impact they have on others and practise the learning in a challenging and safe environment. We really get results!

We feel the weekend has been particularly effective in developing teamwork and encouraging greater degrees of co-operation and communication amongst our new 6th formers. We have appreciated the high levels of skill and expertise of the Bowles team. The weekend has met our objectives well.

There is absolutely no doubt that I would actively suggest BOC as a venue for programmes for clients in the SE who did not wish to travel to Herefordshire or Devon or even overseas! Your infrastructure, flexibility and professionalism are head and shoulders above so many other activity centres you should be justifiably proud

The ethics of Bowles also sat well with our core aims – we strive to be innovative leaders of change but with a sense of community responsibility and a desire to contribute in some way and with the charitable trust receiving all the profits from events like ours, we felt it was a small way in which we could make a difference. We had such an eventful programme that we are now planning future events with the team at Bowles!

Reigate Priory Junior School

Thank you very much for providing, year on year, exemplary outdoor education.  The culture of learning is unique in a beautiful and very well maintained setting. An excellent mix of safe and inspirational, life-changing risk taking with a sense of achievement and purpose.
