Downer EDI Testimonial
“The OPC facilitators are passionate about the outdoors and the personal growth and learning
that can be achieved in this environment. For several years now they have motivated and
supported our young aspiring leaders to learn about themselves, push themselves outside their
comfort zones and strive to achieve their full potential. These skilled facilitators/trainers
are able to work flexibly with our management to develop a programme that is relevant and
integrates personal and leadership development into everyday life – work and personal”
Royal Road School Testimonial
“I did not want another day to go by without writing this email to the most wonderful group of people I know.
Thank you all for the most amazing five days, myself and the twenty children from Royal Road School have ever had. They just never stopped smiling…..even when they got back to school the next week. They experienced activities that they could only have dreamed of. Thanks to yourselves and the kindness of the Pub Charity,
I have seen the results back in the classroom, they all have this great sense of achievement and have grown taller with confidence that comes from OPC.
You really do have a special part of the world down there, one that works magic!! It was nice share the sunshine with you!!
With many thanks and kind regards to you all”
