All programmes are bespoke to meet your educational needs and costs, and tailored to your curriculum.
Activities may be carried out either by Carey staff, the school (or group) or a mix of both. This will be decided on when designing your programme. For all Carey led activities, school or group staff will be asked to provide support.
We have the capacity to sleep up to 150 people in our bell tent accommodation.
