Sport and Challenging Activities
The Adventurous Activities offers an extensive range of exhilarating outdoor pursuits and activities using various locations around Torfaen and other exciting locations around South Wales.
Outdoor Activities have quietly developed into a mainstream area of study in schools.It engages with issues related to essential life and work skills for students from diverse cultural groups – and it’s particularly effective in providing a good learning environment for boys, as well as girls.
Outdoor Education takes an adventure-based, holistic approach to education, requiring decision making, problem solving, personal development and leadership, allowing participants the opportunity to develop themselves personally in all areas.
As part of delivery of climbing sessions we can deliver the NICAS (National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme) scheme. There are 5 levels to this award level 1 which is basic introduction to climbing, up to level 5 which involves advanced out door climbing. Sessions are mainly delivered at Boulders Climbing Centre Cardiff to under 18s and usually up to level 2. Levels 1 & 2 are a step by step guide to learning to climb including fitting of harnesses and helmets and knot tieing.
Torfaen’s Sport and Challenging Activity Co-ordinator also have a wide range of other outdoor activities to access from Climbing, Mountain Biking and Team Building sessions. Young or Old everyone can access outdoor activities.
