On behalf of the e2e partnership and YMCA training, I would like to thank you for an exceptionally well organised outdoor pursuits – Team Building course, you and your staff, especially Trevor and Rory, had a good understanding of the issues the young people who attended have to deal with. The course was well designed to challenge the young people, each day was themed and the plenary review every evening was well organised and invaluable.
The young people are still talking about their adventures and in certain instances the course has lead to several less confident learners now engaging in other activities and eventually employment. The location is outstanding, accommodation and amenities were good and the food was wholesome and the weather held up I would certainly recommend the course to other organisations and I will have no hesitation in returning next year Yours faithfully MJ Ovington e2e Partnership Manager DoncasterYMCA Training
