Avon Tyrrell is part of the UK Youth Charity that absolutely sets young people at the heart of what we do and why we are here.  We use outdoor learning that equips young people with social and emotional skills through learning and adventure using our stimulating locality in the Now Forest National Park. If you are looking for an exciting weekend or short break away with your youth group to experience, learn and develop, Avon Tyrrell has a multitude of adventure challenges and exciting activities that will meet your needs.  

As a charity we can offer bursaries to some of our participants, so that as many young people as possible can benefit from a high quality residential experience.

Increase confidence, motivation, positive attitude develop team work and enhance personal development, see how young people change as they become stimulated with the freedom of the outdoors.

Our staff are specialists at bringing out the best in young people and we use the outdoors to inspire and motivate. Every day brings a new challenge and for many young people, it’s the beginning of a journey, in which they experience, learn and develop to support their life skills.

No matter what you do, the leap of faith to build your confidence or work together as a team to build a raft, our experienced instructors will work to encourage each individual to challenge themselves and help the group achieve more.
