The Beacon Outdoor Activity Centre, DevonFor a life of discovery

Part of Lee Abbey Devon

We will work with you to build a programme that suits your needs.

Our discovery leaders will guide your children in a variety of challenging adventures during the day (such as zip wire, crate stack, archery and low ropes), as well as leading them in fun activities in the evening. You can also choose to make the most of the superb geographical location and include some environmental activities, such as beach or woodland exploration.

Wednesday mornings and evenings are for you to organise, with our support. Many schools choose to walk through The Valley of Rocks to Lynmouth harbour, and then ride on the cliff railway from Lynmouth to Lynton to avoid the steep climb back! We can provide resources for the afternoon and evening. We also have links with the local National Trust Ranger Team and can provide details on request of additional services provided by them.

A certain amount of free time is built into each day, allowing the children to make use of facilities such as the football pitch, table tennis and pool table. Teachers are responsible for supervising their children during this time.

Each day starts with a brief thought for the day – ‘Think Time’ – a fun and inspiring reflection with a Christian emphasis, led by our team.
