Rock UK Summit Centre
The newly reopened Summit Centre (previously Welsh Climbing Centre) compliments Dolygaer in its outdoor activity provision for students of all ages and abilities, and will be developed along with Parc Taf Bargoed to provide an all round learning experience.
Rock UK is a great place for school trips. As well as offering great outdoor adventurous activities and the opportunity to expend some physical energy, we also have the facility to offer Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) sessions. We have found these to be fantastic ways for young people of all ages to absorb information and to learn and explore.
So if you're looking for a place to take a group of students to then why not give us a call on 0844 8000 222 and one of the team will spend some time with you to tailor a visit for you that will meet your learning objectives.
