Summer Camps

Welcome to Myddelton Adventure Camp!

Following the huge success of our 2021 Myddelton Adventure Camps, we are delighted to be offering a new and updated adventure camp in 2022!

At Myddelton College we strongly believe in the power of adventure education in the development of young people, so much so we have embedded this into the student timetabled curriculum.

The Myddelton Adventure Camp has the overarching aim to develop each individual student’s sense of independence. This is understood as a willingness to seek challenges to aid their own learning, which leads to the creation of a strong sense of self-confidence.

We believe that immersion in natural settings, and undertaking adventurous experiences aid young people’s ability to create and maintain strong social bonds. The importance of friendship is of huge value to us at Myddelton College. We aim to deliver authentic, meaningful, challenging, and adventurous activities that are also fun!

Why not join us for a week of fun, friendship, challenge, and adventure?

The Myddelton Adventure Philosophy

We aim to provide high-quality, challenging, and adventurous experiences in beautiful natural settings.

Our greatest resource is our location. We travel to the mountains, rivers, lakes, and beaches of rural North Wales to undertake meaningful adventures, with the aim of placing each student at the centre of the learning process.

We provide the opportunity for students to make decisions that have a real and immediate outcome, in other words, the decisions they make shape their experience.

The Myddelton Adventure Philosophy is based on a risk-benefit approach, in which we intentionally seek out adventure and we do not shy away from risk; we embrace it in a considered and conscious manner, placing emphasis on professional judgement.

To achieve this, we operate at low ratios, we use highly experienced and qualified staff who hold a broad base of personal and professional practice and have a genuine passion for delivering meaningful adventure education.
