Fathers And Children Together (weekend away at Arethusa)
"Take 8 fathers who don’t know each other – from 4 different cultural backgrounds – ranging in age from 30-53. Add in 14 (aged between 5 and 13) of the children they have between them. Put them on a bus and head to an adventure centre in Kent....." To read full testimonial click here
" I took 15 young people (aged 16 to 18) to Arethusa Venture Centre as part of their sports leadership programme. We completed the top field high ropes course and had a fantastic day. The centre instructors worked really well with the group and by the end of this high adrenaline session fifteen individuals had started to trust each other and work as a team. I will definitely be planning future visits. "

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for your support in organising the weekend residential for the Halley Parents. They had a fantastic time and many of them said 'it was an experience of a life time!' They spoke extremely highly of your staff at the centre and said how wonderful they were and how the children have bonded with them so quickly. They loved the water fight!"

Thanet Youth Inclusion Support Project
"We all, staff and children alike, had a brilliant time. Children came back full of enthusiasm, confidence and a real sense of achievement as well as being completely mud-covered and exhausted, which is how every school journey should be. Staff also came home having experienced new activities, with greater confidence and completely exhausted. Without the commitment and dedication and skill of your team of staff we would not have been able to have such a great time; we would not have been able to enjoy the way that the children developed new skills and we would not have so many things to laugh about!
We look forward to seeing you again next year and have great expectations for another fantastic week."
