Your adventure seekers

Conway Centres is home to high adventure, offering land-based, water-based and high-rope adventure activities. For the thrill-seekers in the group, adventure is never far away - with activities like Via Ferrata at Anglesey where children journey through the quarry, kayaking on the Menai Strait and reaching new heights on the tree climb at Tattenhall.

“Whilst at Conway Centres I learnt how to climb rocks, it was very tricky and scary but I did it and I was so pleased with myself.”

Your shy pupils

At Conway Centres, they know that some pupils may feel nervous being away from home and trying out new activities, but the supportive team will encourage and support your children to believe in themselves. Whether they want to cheer on their friends from the sideline, work with their team in creating the raft before it goes out on the water or they want to push themselves out of their comfort zone - the highly qualified Conway Centres’ staff will support children in achieving the unachievable…

“When I was doing via Ferrata I had to step off a high ledge and I said, ‘I can’t do it’ and the instructor said ‘I wouldn’t tell you to do it if you couldn’t do it’.”

Your creative pupils

But at Conway Centres, they know there are the creative pupils who get more of a thrill putting pen to paper or performing a new dance piece. The Arts are a fantastic way for children and young people to express themselves, boost confidence and support wellbeing whilst supporting your creative pupils to shine.

“I have been told I am a good dancer, but as a boy I don’t get the opportunity to dance outside of school. I really enjoyed expressing myself in the Indian dance and the capoeira. It has helped me be proud of my talent.”
