The Princes Trust Team Programme is a 12 week programme, designed for young people aged between 16-25 to improve their confidence and self-esteem, learn new skills, and make new friends. This is done through a range of outdoor and community activities as well as work experience.
Participants come to The Great Escape for the second week of the Team Programme, known as Residential Week. They spend the time experiencing everything the amazing Great Escape venue has to offer, from orienteering round the 120 acres and beyond, to climbing activities, traversing across the high gorge, rafting and the numerous team building activities. At night, they enjoy night walks and further challenges under the undiluted light of the stars.
Whilst they are with us, they enhance their communication skills, learn to live together, cook for each other and, most of all, put their trust in each other.
“Went there with the Prince’s Trust and it was beautiful, challenging and rewarding. The cottage is beautiful and the people there are lovely and funny. The chickens were so friendly, they were like cats with feathers! They greeted us nearly every day. Would definitely recommend this.”
