Our highly qualified instructors offer programmes which include a full range of adventure sports and field study activities for everyone. All of our Activities, courses and programmes make students/Individuals/families/groups aware of and develop their often hidden talents and skills.

This can be used in everyday life for young and older visitors to Cappanalea OETC.
