The Outdoor Centre is situated in the small hamlet of Heol Callwen, Glyntawe, on the Southern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The building is a converted primary school. The Centre is an ideal place for school trips, sleeping up to 39 people and with separate staff accommodation within this capacity. It makes an excellent base for activity breaks or special programmes like Duke of Edinburgh expeditions for both young people and adults. The accommodation and facilities have been awarded a 3-Star Hostel grade by the Welsh Tourist Board.
The Centre can provide a whole host of activities and study options for visiting groups. The location lends itself well to geography & geology groups of all ages, with glaciated valleys, river valleys, limestone pavement, large cave complexes, waterfalls, visible faults, mountains and woodlands all within a short distance.
Almost any outdoor activity can be arranged. These include, but are not limited to bushcraft, caving, climbing, coasteering, canoeing, gorge walking, mountain walking, mountain biking. We can also provide visits to some of the historical features within the Brecon Beacons National Park such as; castles, iron-age hill forts, roman encampments, and standing stones.
The Centre is committed to considering the environmental impacts of any of its activities, and works to reduce these impacts where ever possible. Dulwich College Outdoor Centre is proud to be one of the founding members of the Outdoor Professionals Co-Operative, and committed to its environmental stance for work in the outdoor sector.
