Working with Gradbach Scout Camp Groups

We have just have a very positive meeting with Mark Rushworth, the manager and head warden at Gradbach Scout Camp - what a nice chap! We were exploring how  (without going to Alton Towers) we can offer the best service adventures and activities or the visiting groups.

2012 saw an increase in activities we provided for the visiting scouts including rock climbing at one of the iconic Staffordshire Peak District crags, The Roaches. This was done under our Rock Climbing Peak District brand - 

We also took several scout groups abseiling at Millers Dale Bridge, one of the Peak Districts best abseiling venues on the Monsal Trail between Bakewell and Buxton. The abseil at Millers Dale is off an old railway bridge over the spectacular River Wye. We launch from one of the arches  over the middle of the river. AWESOME! We are hoping in 2013 that more groups will cycle in to the Abseiling Derbyshire venue and combine the activity. This makes a great full day of activities in the White Peak area of the Peak District giving a contrast to the more rough and rugged Staffordshire Moorlands area.

 An 80' free hang abseil over a river is not to be sniffed at and what a fantastic photo opportunity to take back and show your family and class mates.

We also had the chance to work on-site at Gradbach Scout camp providing archery and bushcraft to scout groups from many parts of the country. The archery was done under our banner and the bushcraft under our brand.

2013 is a very busy year for the scout camp and several groups are booking activities with us already and we are looking forward to having some adventures with the scouts.

Bring it on! 

We have got lots of other things happening this year as well as working with scouts. In February we are working with Nottingham Business School on their International Masters Induction progromme and then from March onwards with Gilders Motor Group developing their first line managers potential.
