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!

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

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.

3 of my 4 daughters have had residential weeks at Bowles and the little one can’t wait. You give them an absolutely marvellous time – the week seems packed full of challenging activities, fun and adventure and each one has come home slightly changed by the experience – more confident, happy, settled and buzzing with tales of their experiences and team skills. Thank you. Merna

10/10 for educational value, with particular reference to the use of growth mindsets, plus the best food I have ever had in all my years of organising residential trips.
