A chance to have a free adventurous 4 night residential course in Snowdonia for school groups of up to 12.

Thanks to the generous support of Llanberis based Boulder Adventures school groups can apply for a 4 night residential outdoor activity course at their Bryn Du Mountain Centre completely free of charge, for the week commencing 25th March 2019. 

Residential courses are quite often peoples first taste of the outdoor experiences many of us take for granted, however finding the funding to book on to a course is a real barrier for some. This is where AKF comes in and each month we support applications from groups throughout the UK. For a second year running we welcome the support of Boulder Adventures in helping us to help people overcome obstacles and enable them to Go Nice Places and Do Good Things... If you are unsure, or have any questions about matching the activities to the specific needs of your group please contact Boulder Adventures directly, their details are below...
