FAQs for parents

We know what kids are like, they probably haven’t told you much about their upcoming adventure. Our professional instructor team will be guiding your child throughout the activity. We’ll be helping them to understand their environment and how to experience it sustainably. We’ll support them if they’re facing any fears and help grow their confidence. We’ll help them assess risks and learn new skills, creating lasting memories and experiences.

Do I have to provide a parental consent form?

Yes, we need one for each child who participates. You can download it here. Please return it to your school/group leader as soon as possible as we need it a few days before the event.
