Zoe – Instructor & DofE Coordinator
Zoe went on her first expedition as a teacher accompanying students and was hooked on the outdoors from that point on! She has ten years’ experience working with young people in the outdoors and would prefer to be outside rather than in but still does supply work for local schools. She is a qualified archery instructor (aka Catniss) and can also turn her hand to sailing, morris dancing and synchronised swimming.
Zoe is one of our DofE coordinators but enjoys working on all our residential camps and watching the transformation as students discover how to work as a team and become more confident in their own abilities.
Wez & Floki
Wez and Floki belong to our directors and are much loved members of the team. Whil staff are forgotten over time, we are inundated with requests from teachers and students for the dogs to ‘work’ on their next camp.
Both boys enjoy the open air, mud and especially water and can be found at many of our events or at our company office.
