The weekend activities should be considered the culmination of everything that has happened in the week or weeks preceding them. They are a chance to really put to the test all of the development that has taken place during the course up to that point and are challenging and highly rewarding. The students will find themselves amazed at what they can suddenly achieve with their new found confidence and with the help of their friends. The programme, as with the course as a whole, is a balance of adventure, exploration and culture. The students might find themselves heading off to the coast to try surfing, kayaking or coasteering (sea-level exploring) or maybe up to the Welsh mountains to explore their rugged summits by climbing or hiking. They may even find themselves camping out or watching the sunrise from a deserted beach. They can also expect to unleash their acting, directing, scriptwriting or camera skills whilst making a film in just a day. They also might find themselves exploring a Wiltshire river by row boat and having a picnic on the river bank.
Those students staying for the whole month will have the chance to visit London where they will get involved with some of the most exciting cultural experiences to be had in the city: Tate Modern, The Science Museum and The Globe Theatre to name just a few. Not only will they be visiting these places but they will be challenged to interact with the spaces in novel ways and to see them from new perspectives. Along the way they will have chance to meet local artists and musicians and to really get under the skin of one of the great cities of the world.
