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.We are registered with The Charity Commission as a Charity: Number 1096583
