The staff team made this experience a truly amazing one. They adapted their activities to meet the needs of our Young People. They were always happy and enthusiastic and asking if all was good. We never felt rushed or pushed to be back on task when dealing with the different challenges/needs of our Young People. Blackburn & Darwin Young People Services, May 2016

We loved the lodge, we loved the location and activities and more importantly we loved the people! Our children are complex and range widely in their needs and abilities, however that was never an issue and every child got something from the week. It was fantastic to see the children out of their comfort zones, smiling, laughing and enjoying new experiences. Springwood School, May 2016

The whole experience has been impeccable. Your staff are fantastic, so understanding and caring and the love of their job shines through. The management of our varied diets within children has been brilliant. Food was delicious - we all feel 5 stone heavier! You continue to impress us each year. Horton Lodge Special School, May 2016

Our trip was FANTASTIC. Thank you to everyone including Jake our volunteer, and especially the kitchen staff for looking after all our children's specific needs and making such delicious meals. Staff were amazed at the children's bravery and willingness to try new experiences that could have been quite daunting to them! Janet, Acorns School, April 2016
