Training Courses Castleshaw centre periodically runs training courses in a range of outdoor activities; in many cases these can lead to nationally recognised performance or leadership awards.

Activity courses During the summer holidays, we run a number of short activity courses aimed specifically at young people. These are normally based around either canoeing /kayaking or climbing, but can also include a range of other options such as orienteering, problem solving activities or artificial caving.
Alternatively, if you are part of a group who would would like to access training in a particular area, it could be possible to set up a training course just for you. Again, contact the centre for a quotation.
