“We had a fantastic two days at BF doing Via Ferrata. The staff were fantastic in both their instruction and the fun they had with the girls whilst doing the activity. They supported some girls and challenged others and they all had a brilliant experience. I would highly recommend it to anyone.” (Truro High School for Girls)

“The range of activities, overall facilities and the commitment of the staff and instructors made it the best Outdoor Ed camp that we have done in my 17 years at Pondhu School. We will look forward to coming back again in the near future.” (Pondhu School)
