UK Group Residential Trips

Residential trips can help young people and young adults to develop independence and bond with their peers and leaders in informal settings. They provide a wonderful opportunity for youngsters to begin their journey as independent people with lives outside their homes.

Our UK multi-activity residential group trips are based at our flagship Rockley Point Centre and Buddens Activity Centre. We offer a blend of challenging and rewarding activities that can be enjoyed residentially or on a day visit.  We offer adventurous and unforgettable experiences for young people and adults from every background; from schools, scouting, youth groups and beyond.
