Why we love it

Overview

Designed for those who want to be pushed beyond their comfort zone. Unlike many activities companies, we design our weeks specifically for teenagers; attempting to curate unique challenges and experiences that they haven’t had before.

Our Teen Extreme Week is based in Tirabad, Wales, and takes your teens out onto real rocks and caves around Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons). No fabricated environments here… We will see how they cope against the real world in a series of challenging extreme environments whilst having the support of fully qualified instructors to guide them safely through. We also group everyone in to teams with each team getting assigned a pastoral group leader who will look after everyone and ensuring they're integrating well and are happy. We aim to make this your home away from home for the week whilst having an epic adventure.

Accommodation

The Tyr Abad Mansion backs onto more than 1500 acres of open access foresty.

Historically rich and in a visually stunning location, our centre is self-contained and provides dorm-style bunk bed accommodation for up to 48 young people (plus 6 staff when it's with whole groups).

    Had a great time staying at the Tyr Abad Residential Centre. Beautiful views, great space for the group to hang out downstairs, a fire pit outside & loads of beds in the place. Tyr Abad is also home to two very friendly cats who were very eager to say hi. We were well looked after by Pete & team with axe throwing, archery, air rifles and paddleboarding.

    This place is something else, if I could I would trade in my Xbox to be able to stay here every night.

    I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to go on this trip, and nothing feels the same. I feel I’ve grown mentally and physically, and I spend more time with myself now trying to continue building myself, but it’s not the same. My journal from this week has become something super important to me, as well as my medallion. I bring it to school with me now, just in my bag. It’s given me motivation to speak more, and I think it’s going pretty well.

    So yeah, I don’t have any criticism really. This was the best thing to happen to me in years.

    Some of the finest practice I have seen in over 20 years of working with children with challenging behaviour. This skill set means the levels of engagement we see from our boys is excellent in the fantastic range of activities on offer. At all times Pete’s delivery of activities is first class and the pupils want to succeed in areas most have never experienced before.

    I cannot recommend Arc Adventures enough for all children but particularly those that present with SEMH and behaviour that challenges. It is a life changing experience for our pupils in an environment which provides safety and support.
