Pembrokeshire weekend

During the weekend, experienced leaders will accompany all groups. No previous experience of any activity is necessary. All activities will be tailored to suit the capabilities of participants, and it is hoped that even experienced people will find new challenges to be enjoyed. Planned activities include climbing, abseiling, coastal walking (including beaches - bring your swimming costume), and kite flying. The donation for the weekend includes accommodation, travel, meals (except those purchased on the journeys) and all activities.
