Schools at Min y Don
Min y Don is different to many other venues as most of the activities are located around the site. This makes safety and managing your group all the easier.
Lots of great activities can be packed into a week or shorter stay. No travelling for miles in minibuses or sitting in the bus eating soggy sandwiches!
Our activities take place right on-site and in between activities you can enjoy your meals in the dining room.
- Hill Walk to Cregennan Lakes
The Min y Don Team can occupy your group from breakfast until bedtime and we aim to take the pressure off group leaders by covering each part of the day with a structured programme leaving you free to get to know the children even better.
Min y Don has a 50 year track record of providing fabulous outdoor education visits for all types of groups and we specialise in school bookings.
Both Centre Managers at Min y Don are teachers themselves and have years of practice in putting together programmes designed to suit your needs exactly.
School bringing over 25 pupils generally have exclusive use of all the facilities which means you won’t have to share Min y Don with another group.
This way we can tailor-make the programme to match your needs precisely.
- Kayaking Session
A typical stay at Min y Don would include all activities, instruction, equipment, accommodation and meals as part of the cost. No hidden extras!
Many school come for a Monday to Friday visit, but shorter stays are possible. Activities begin on the afternoon of arrival and continue until you leave Min y Don on the morning of departure. A packed lunch is provided on your last day for you to either eat here before you leave or take with you on the journey home.
We have a wide range of activities for you to choose from, as well as fantastic evening wide games and excursions to all the exciting places this wonderful part of Wales has to offer.
Teachers can enjoy separate rooms with en-suite bathrooms and tea/coffee making facilities. We also have a teacher’s lounge with TV and a small kitchen should it be needed.
Many schools appreciate a visit to the school from our Centre Manager, who, on request will visit and give a presentation to parents, teachers and Governors outlining all the Centre has to offer. A number of our regular visitors have a pre-visit presentation to parents before the school arrives. This helps tremendously with re-assuring the parents before the children embark on their week of adventure!
By way of reference, we are happy to provide details of schools that use us as a regular venue for their residential visits and welcome teachers, parents and Governors coming to view the site as a potential location for their children to spend their adventure week.
