The benefits of a winter residential
Winter doesn’t mean the end of adventure at Conway Centres…. we are open all year round for schools to enjoy an exciting residential trip! Schools fight for dates in the summer months but our winter residentials have so many benefits for young people…
We know that a winter residential brings more challenging weather, but what better way to encourage children to thrive in the natural environment? Whether you choose to challenge them by navigating the demanding Menai Strait in Anglesey or by venturing into the vast woodlands of Delamere, children will be challenged to achieve the unachievable, which will develop their resilience in a safe environment. They will leave their residential feeling more confident and stronger, both mentally and physically.
After a long six weeks of summer holidays, children return to school with a rejuvenated enthusiasm, ready to learn. A winter residential is an opportunity for your school to re-focus children’s minds for their targets and expectations, to ensure they are aiming high and know what to expect in the coming year. We can support with creating bespoke courses to suit the the curriculum and your goals. They will return to the classroom with an increased appetite for learning and motivated for the school year ahead.
We understand many schools have their residential trip at the end of the year as a reward for their learners… but when children visit Conway Centres they take away so much more than just fantastic memories. Education is at the heart of all our activities, programmes and events - we are all about learning outcomes. Children leave our centres learning something new and by visiting in the winter months you will fully reap the benefits for the rest of the academic year.
Taking children on a winter residential at the start of the academic year will help them build and reconnect their relationships after the summer break. In tougher weather conditions, they will have to work harder together as a team for activities like Mega Stand-Up Paddleboard and raft building. The relationships they build from a winter residential will enable children to bond with their peers in a different environment which will then be taken back to school. Better to do it at the start of the academic year than the end, when it may be too late!
Pssst.. winter months = low prices + more benefits! If you are looking for a cost-effective residential trip for your school which will test and challenge your students, a winter residential is perfect for you. You will pay less but children have the opportunity to take away so much more!
Your winter residential awaits...
