Youth and school groups, students & trainees

At BECKs Training we facilitate outdoor activities, leadership and team building programs suitable for every young person:

  • We can run events for as little as 10 people or for large groups of 100 – young people can be as young as 7 or as old – well – as old as young people can be.
  • We run events at one of our venues; Deneholme Country House, Sweethope Adventure or indeed at your school, project, camp or any suitable location across the North of England.
  • Events can be just a morning session of team building tasks on site at your school or a fully fledged canoeing expedition for a week. We work with a number of centres – not just Deneholme – to provide accommodation for your residential

  • Leadership and team building to really get your team working together, realising their strengths and how they can improve as a team and as individuals. Activities include “Contract Raft”, “Operation Nimrod”, “Activity Murder Mystery”, the “Jigsaw Challenge”, “Search and Rescue Scenarios” and Problem Solving Tasks.
  • Team Challenge Days – in the style of Outdoor Olympics and Adventure Competitions we can set up one of our three challenges involving a number of outdoor activities. Teams of 8-12 YP compete in a round robin style for points to win GOLD.
