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

John Lewis

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!

Laing O’Rourke

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!

Pinnacle PSG

Pinnacle has a very well established relationship with the Bowles Rocks Trust. I enjoy taking groups of Managers and their teams along to their lovely facility on a regular basis; often these groups are very diverse and have not necessarily worked together before, but the integration process we go through is extremely effective. The L&D team are totally client focussed, and the food is great too! Highly recommended!

Hurst Park School

Always excellent communication, always flexible, always accommodating of late/last minute changes, always friendly, welcoming and professional.

Harlequins RFC

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
