The Outdoor Centre
Dulwich College has its own Outdoor Centre in the heart of the Brecon Beacons. All boys in Years 4 and 5 go away for four or five days respectively with their Form in the Summer Term and Year 7 for a week in the Michaelmas Term. This is currently subject to COVID/government guidelines.
Whilst there, they take on various physical challenges such as rock climbing, abseiling , rock hopping, bush craft and mountain walking, along with work to support their geography studies. The activities seek to develop the boys’ resilience and perseverance as well as their sense of teamwork. In addition, the boys have a chance to be away from home in a secure environment, learning many vital life skills such as being responsible for your own belongings, stepping out of your own comfort zone and learning to live happily with others even if they do not do things your way. Most of all, it provides boys with the opportunity to have great fun and to take away memories that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
