My 10yr son was keen to go on the course as he loves outdoor activities. For us, the ability for him to do team activities with boys in different year groups and learn new skills and develop existing ones in a safe yet challenging environment was a perfect complement to the activities we want to develop with him in our own time. It helped him with interpersonal skills and developed his confidence especially as he has a real interest in alternative activities. The confidence developed from activities like this enhance your performance in other environments, whether within the class room or on the sports field. The instructors and general organisation also represent a great set of role models that can translate to other activities and environments. – Sarah Whitely, parent at Inchmarlo.
