Hey! - What's the matter with May?
We've had a great 2016 here at TRAC, now as the season comes to an end we're looking forward to 2017. Our bookings for 2017 are looking good for the moment but May 2017 still has some dates available, so if you're looking to plan a week or weekend away for your organisation, youth group or church group get in touch with our Centre Manager soon!
Welcome to the Tom Roberts Adventure Centre
We offer camping and indoor accommodation for groups on a 22 acre site with a good standard of accommodation, ample parking for all your needs and attractive rates for group bookings, amid beautiful surroundings in the Gloucestershire countryside, close to the old market town of Newent.
We loved the weekend it was perfect for what we needed, so thank you very much. We will definitely be booking again

Just got your latest newsletter and am getting excited about our weekend at TRAC in May 2016 because of the amazing work there. It just keeps getting better every year and is amazing value for money. Can’t wait to try out the go-karts and Chill out Zone ... and that’s just the leaders!

Dear John, We and our students have had a great time at TRAC. They prefered it even above staying in the Queen's hotel London. They especially liked the cosy atmosphere at TRAC and the opportunities to have activities together. The campfire was also highly appreciated. Last but not least, the provision of food was also lovely and abundant. Hope to come back in future.

Mission StatementTo provide facilities within a Christian environment which enables families, young people and children to participate in and experience recreational, sporting, outdoor and leisure activities with the aim of developing the mental, moral, spiritual and physical well-being of the individual and enhance their maturity and life experience. To maximise their ability to be fully mature members of society regardless of financial, social, home and physical circumstances or disability.
Access StatementThe Tom Roberts Adventure Centre was established in memory of the previous owner of the site who generously gave the 22 acre site to establish the Centre. It is predominately (but not exclusively) for young people from various backgrounds who would benefit from experiencing time camping and undertaking activities, vastly different from those of their day to day lives.
In addition to this, the trustees have decided to widen the scope of the site and to open up the Centre for all members of the general public to book the site. However once booked by a group or individual then it is exclusively theirs for the duration of the booking in order to safeguard the wellbeing of any young people onsite. As a result of this it is necessary to operate a minimum booking fee at certain busy times of the year. To this end all members of TRAC staff have enhanced vetting under the appropriate DBS checks.
The site is open for bookings 365 days a year and it is currently expected that a minimum of 150 days per year will be available for use by the general public between the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm (or later by arrangement) i.e. when the site has not been pre booked by organised groups. Activities which require supervision must be pre booked and paid for to ensure that suitably qualified staff are available to oversee the safety of those using of the equipment. The costs and terms of booking the various elements of the site are available upon request.
Bookings are made on a first come first served basis and we will only accept bookings up to maximum of 12 months in advance.
