Mind Body Soul

For ages 16-18 Duration 21 days

Achieve anything you set your mind to with the Mind Body Soul course.

Whether that’s going to uni or polytech, taking on a leadership role at school or simply making new friends. You’ll leave this 21 day adventure fitter and stronger, with new social skills and more confidence in group situations.

Your action-packed adventure will reveal your true strengths and you’ll spend time with your instructor learning how to apply these skills to everyday life.

With a real sense of independence and a new positive mindset, you’ll be open to whatever challenge comes your way.

As well as being great for your CV, the Mind Body Soul course can also contribute towards your Duke of Edinburgh Award.

The feeling of mud on your skin, the cold water on your face, the hot sun on your back, the butterflies in your stomach, will never leave me and will forever be in my memories, with each and every experience helping to make me a better, stronger and more confident human being.
