A really enjoyable day was had by all and I certainly haven’t laughed like that whilst at work in years. You truly have a lovely site and one that I hope we can utilise in the future.

WOW!!! What a fantastic day we had at TRAC yesterday, both staff and students loved it. Students have commented on how much they loved the variety of activities, with each student having different activities as their favourite. Students have said that if the same trip runs again next year they will definitely be coming! Staff commented on what a fantastic learning environment for students and schools and how they could learn in a fun, relaxed way; Also we would like to thank you for the warm, friendly and professional help provided by yourself and the team. We left with a highly positive view of TRAC.

Seeing as we had such a fantastic time with you in May of this year, we were hoping to book again for a weekend in June 2019.

Having spent 3 days residential with a group of Year 3&4 children the staff at TRAC went above and beyond to make our stay adventurous, and exciting despite the sometimes appalling weather, even down to testing our raft building skills in extremely cold water. Not many centre managers would put themselves in that position. Thank you so much to all of the staff at TRAC.

"It was the best trip ever, thank you for teaching us new things"

"I loved the Zip Wire it was really fun, it kept blowing my hair in my face"

"The orienteering was fun because we got to use stamps, paper and find clues"

"I loved the pedal boating it was great"

"My favourite thing was the archery. The reason why I enjoyed it is because I thought I couldn't do it but I did"

"I loved the Chill Out Zone because of the air hockey"

"Me and my friends made a really good den it had a fire place and a living room and a bedroom"

Mission Statement

Mission Statement
To 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 Statement

Access Statement
The 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.
