'First Time Adventurers' - By Kelly Glover

My 10-year old daughter and I chose Acorn Adventure due to the list of activities on offer, summer holiday dates and location. We were both complete beginners to adventure activities so didn’t really have any expectations as such apart from receiving professionally led activities, clean accommodation and decent food… we were not disappointed!

We decided to go to The Brecon Beacons Adventure for 3 nights - Friday to Monday in August. Initially, I was a bit nervous about travelling by myself with my daughter but with the combination of friendship, laughter and relaxation, there was absolutely nothing to worry about.

All the children made friends with ease which made me feel very relaxed and get on well with the other parents as a result. The children loved the
much-needed independence in a lovely unique environment. Thank you, it was exactly what we needed!

Our highlight of the weekend was The Bushcraft experience as we got to build dens, make campfires, bread and hot chocolate. This was a nice treat which the children all loved and it was nice to get dirty and feel in touch with nature. My daughter loved it so much we’re thinking about going again to a different destination next year!
