Winter Explorer Courses

Introducing the £125 Winter Explorer 3-day Course for Jan and  £154 in February

The Winter Explorer Course is a low cost residential trip but with the high quality you would expect from Bowles Outdoor Centre.

We have  a three-day residential with all meals and daytime activities included in the price. The program will include climbing/scrambling, skiing and kayaking in our heated swimming pool. During the evening we have a range of resources and indoor spaces that teachers can use to run sessions including discos, films and talent show.  Meals are home cooked and hearty and children and staff also get a well deserved hot chocolate at the end of the day.

We understand that the weather is colder this time of year but we know from experience that this has little effect on the quality of the course. We only run activities that are suitable for this time of year such as skiing, indoor kayaking and scrambling. All these sessions are highly active so the groups stay warm. We have fluffy caving suits and full water proofs to keep people warm. We can even provide the teachers with hot drinks, umbrellas and warm clothing.

This three-day course is just £125 per person in January and £154 February

We also have an additional discount for any school that books a 5 day course (4 days if there is a bank holiday) following February half term, Easter Holidays and Summer Holidays.
