Thank you for joining us for our action packed 2017 Summer Camp. The Camps focussed on developing the outdoor skills and experience of our young adventurers. We had great fun instructing some really talented paddlers, climbers and mountain bikers.

Our highlights this year included:

  • Coasteering on Anglesey
  • Rock climbing in the Llanberis Pass, Tremadog and Gogarth
  • Paddling the River Dee and Tryweryn
  • Biking at Coed y Brenin, Llandegla and the Penmachno trails
  • Stand up paddle boarding on our lake in the evenings
  • Inspirational talks from PYB’s highly experienced and talented instructors

 

Planning for 2018 has started and as always we are looking to improve your experience with us based on your valuable feedback.

Young Persons Summer Camps (age 12-17)

We've been running our Summer Camp for young people (12-17 years) for many years. That experience has helped us identify the most important ingredient in outdoor learning - Fun. Our Summer Camp courses focus on providing maximum enjoyment whilst learning and developing outdoor skills with each of our highly qualified instructors, true enthusiasts keen to pass on their skills as well as their unique approach to the outdoors. Once again we are running a range of young person skills courses taking up the entire Plas y Brenin building from an introductory level through to performance. On our Summer Camps, you will be surrounded by people of your own age and interests. In addition to instruction, you will always have male and female members of staff close at hand, to sort out any problems or answer any questions. All Instructors working with young people have the appropriate DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service, formerly CRB) check. A copy of the Safeguarding and Child Protection policy is available. In the evening, our staff organise a wide range of other events including quizzes, competitions, orienteering, paddling, climbing competitions and raft building experiences. So why not join us for a Summer Camp with more than a hint of adventure this summer?
