Our programmes are progressive in nature and are designed to encourage participants to venture outside their comfort zone, optimizing learning capabilities. We operate primarily in the UK and cover the length and breadth of the country. We also provide bespoke expeditions tailored to your schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s requirements. Whether you want a leadership, team building and problem solving programme delivered on your school grounds, a catered residential or Camp Craft course in the picturesque Peak District, or a Base Camp multi activity programme in the beautiful Black Mountains of South Wales - Class Adventure can provide it. For older students we also run 5-day trekking expeditions in North Wales and the Lake District and River Expeditions on the River Wye.

OUR ETHOS - CHALLENGE - PARTICIPATION - ENVIRONMENT

We encourage students to develop their characters by taking on responsibility, working as part of a team and learning to lead. Our ethos runs throughout our portfolio. We like to challenge all students taking part in our programmes by giving them responsibility, encouraging them to take ownership, and to learn new skills. Student benefits are numerous and the life skills we teach are transferable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they can be utilized back at school or in the home environment, as well as in the great outdoors.

SUMMIT TREK North Wales - Lake District The 5-Day Summit Trek is our flagship offering for older students. The expedition is both fun and extremely rewarding and is the ultimate test of teamwork, leadership and communication skills. Accommodation can be a mix of mountain tents and camping barns depending on the itinerary chosen. Students will work in teams, experience life in a mountain environment and learn how to adapt and become self sufficient. Their performance will be carefully facilitated by our Leaders to ensure maximum input is given by the students and therefore maximum benefit is gained from their experience. This programme is primarily run in North Wales around the Ogwen Valley and Snowdon area; however we also offer a Lake District option which takes place in the beautiful surroundings of Borrowdale near Keswick. Both locations will challenge the students, as they will have to work as a team, take on responsibility and learn how to cope in an environment which will test their resolve. Our expeditions are designed to be exciting, rewarding and inspiring.

BUSHCRAFT Bath Bushcraft has previously formed part of Class Adventure’s Camp Craft and Base Camp programmes. As a result of high demand from our client schools we have also decided to offer Bushcraft as a standalone programme in 2011. We are introducing both 2-day and 3-day itineraries. Our new Bushcraft initiative will take place in a rural setting 8 miles outside the historic city of Bath and is designed to be informative, interactive and fun. The itinerary is likely to include: improvised cooking, shelter building, water sources, navigation, self sufficiency, survival and camp craft. If the concept of a “back to basics” programme appeals to you then this is the programme for your school group. * Please note that due to the nature of our Bushcraft programmes, we have to preserve the environment within which they are delivered. This means that places will be limited.

TEAM SPIRIT Various A 1-day programme based on your school grounds or in nearby open space, we bring our practical leadership and development tasks and activities to you. Facilitated by an experienced team of Class Adventure Leaders, our Team Spirit tasks and activities are tailored to your students’ age group to ensure progression and a fun problem solving day. Whether delivered as an introduction to leadership, a year group bonding session, a team building day, or for prefect training, this programme is extremely popular for all student age groups. Designed to be used as a medium to stretch minds and develop character, our 1-day programme will bring out the best in all participants. Students are encouraged to review their performance and evaluate results as a peer group so they learn from their experiences.

2-day Programme: Team Spirit + Team Spirit can also be delivered as a 2-day onsite programme: Team Spirit +. This includes an overnight camp to aid development and to teach self sufficiency skills. It gives students the opportunity to experience living under canvas and to take responsibility for their own meals, tent, area and team. Team Spirit + incorporates all of the leadership and developmental elements of our 1-day option but is also an exciting, fun and rewarding introduction to camp craft within the safe environment of your school grounds.

We are unable to book anything yet as we don’t know our exact group size? We make it easy; you can secure your preferred centre and dates with a nominal Holding Deposit of only £20 per person (+VAT). We will then hold your booking until the end of September, by which time you’ll be able to send us your First Deposits to confirm the final numbers. Holding Deposits will be taken to represent your maximum group size. A reduction of up to 20% (before payment of First Deposits) will not result in cancellation charges or loss of Holding Deposits. If group numbers decrease by more than 20% after the Holding Deposits have been paid, and before First Deposits are due, charges will be incurred. Are your centres and activities accredited? All of our centres and activities operate to the highest safety standards and we continually monitor, assess and develop our procedures to ensure that those standards are consistently maintained. We conform to several National Governing Bodies’ Codes of Practice and always strive to exceed their standards. For more information on our accreditations, please refer to page 18. What specialist equipment to you provide? Helmets and buoyancy aids are supplied and must be worn as directed by our staff. Wetsuits are also provided where applicable. Specialist equipment for all our activities is supplied free of charge in our prices. Is our group insured or do we need to organise separate insurance? Fully comprehensive insurance is always included free of charge in our prices. It covers each student and adult from the moment your booking is confirmed until you return back to school after your trip, including travel and all our activities. We will provide you with a detailed policy document for your reference. Do you cater for students specific needs? Absolutely! We are dedicated to providing every young person with the opportunity to enjoy the JCA experience. Many special needs students and groups travel with us every year, as most of our activities can be adapted to suit the needs of the individual student. We will be happytodiscussyour specific requirements atthe time of booking. How will our school be split into individual activity groups? We have a unique policy of one dedicated multi-trained

instructor per activity groupforthedurationofyour stay. The maximum number of students per activity group is 12 - you will decide how the group is split. Do we keep our instructors all week? Your instructors will stay with your groups throughout your course, although there may be some cases where you will have another instructor for a specialist activity session such as watersports. How many free places to we get and how many adults can we bring? For every 8 students under 18, you are entitled to 1 free adult place. We do not insist that you take up this allocation, however you will need to take an adequate number of adults to supervise your group on a ‘loco parentis’ basis. You are welcome to bring additional adults at a supplementary charge. What happens in the evenings? Our team of instructors will ensure that every evening is packedwithfunactivitiestomakeeverydaymemorable, and send the students to bed with that wonderfully content feeling of tiredness and happiness combined! A duty instructor will then be on call throughout the night. We would like to visit local attractions during our stay, is this possible? Yes! Our Activity and Education course offers groups the opportunity to visit some of the wonderful local attractions. We will be happy to organise a full or part programme for your group. We will also gladly arrange excursions from any of our centres for you if required. What happens if it rains? Most activities can continue in wet weather and extra time will be allocated for everyone to dry off properly. If the weather is extreme and activities cannot take place, the Centre Manager will implement the centres’ Wet Weather Plan. Can your staff administer first aid and medication? All of our instructors are First-Aid trained, however it is the responsibility of the accompanying adults to administer any medication that is required or prescribed. What happens in an emergency? All of our staff are trained to deal with issues in a fast and efficient manner. A member of our on-site staff will be on duty 24 hours at day throughout your stay.

H - Our Liability 1. The company accepts responsibility for the service which it provides. Many services included in your overall course provision such as the services provided by the site, coach companies or other transport operators are provided and performed by organisations over whom Travel Class has no direct control. However, the company accepts responsibility for providing all the various parts of your holiday to a reasonable standard and the company has done its best to ensure that the services provided by its various suppliers are efficiently supplied and are of a reasonable standard. The company accepts the responsibility for acts and/or omissions of its employees, agents, subcontractors and suppliers provided they were at the time acting within the scope of or in the course of their employment agency or contract of supply. This acceptance of liability does not apply where the term and definition of “Force Majeure” as defined in these conditions occurs. In all cases where personal injury, illness or death occurs, the company’s liability is limited to the trip price (excluding insurance premiums and any alteration/ amendment charges) of the person(s) affected in total. 2. The company also accepts responsibility for the death, injury or illness of any member of the party which occurs as a result of failure to perform or improper performance of any part of our contract with you by any of the company’s employees, agents or subcontractors, provided they were at the time acting within the scope of or in the course of their employment, agency or contract of supply, with the exception that the failure to perform or improper performance was due to your own acts and/or omissions, or those of any third party not connected with the provision of your trip arrangements and which were unforeseeable and unavoidable, or an event which either ourselves or the suppliers of the service(s) could not have foreseen or forestalled even with all due care. As far as sea carriage is concerned the company’s liability is limited as if we were carriers within the appropriate national convention. Our acceptance of this liability is conditional upon your notifying us in writing within 28 days of your return from your trip, and where any payment is made to you or a member of your party by us or our insurers, we reserve the right to claim against any third party responsible. It is also a condition that the person(s) in receipt of such payment will assign to ourselves or our insurers any rights they may have to claim against any third party. 3. You must also agree to give ourselves or our insurers your full co-operation. 4. Should you or any member of your party suffer illness, injury or death during the period of your holiday by misadventure arising from any activity which does not form part of the services we are contracted to provide, we shall do our best at our absolute discretion to give assistance, guidance and financial assistance, where appropriate, up to a limit per booking of £5,000 cost to ourselves. 5. Under the terms of your insurance, all the members of your party are covered for medical expenses, medical emergency service and legal expenses cover. If any costs incurred by the company in providing you with the aforementioned financial assistance are for insured risks or in the event of a successful claim against a third party, the company

reserves the right to recover costs from the party member concerned. I - Complaints Procedure 1. If there is a problem during the course, the party leader should speak immediately to the 2. Centre Manager who will probably be able to resolve it. 3. If the problem cannot be resolved in the resort during the course, the Party Leader should write to the company with full details on his/her return within seven days. 4. Disputes arising out of, or in connection with, this contract which cannot be amicably settled may be referred to arbitration, if the customer so wishes, under a special Scheme arranged by the Association of British Travel Agents, and administered independently by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. 5. The scheme provides for a simple and inexpensive method of arbitration on documents alone with restricted liability on the customers in respect of costs. Full details will be provided on request or can be obtained from the ABTA website (www.abta.com). The Scheme does not apply claims for an amount greater than £5,000 per person. There is also a limit of £25,000 per booking form. Neither does it apply to claims, which are solely in respect of physical injury or illness or their consequences. The Scheme can however deal with compensation claims, which include an element of minor injury or illness subject to a limit of £1,000 on the amount the arbitrator can award per person in respect of this element. The application for arbitration and Statement of Claim must be received by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators within nine months of the date of return. Outside this time limit arbitration under the Scheme may still be available if the company agrees, but the ABTA Code does not require such agreement. J - The Party Leader’s Responsibility 1. The Party Leader should ensure that all party members observe all laws and customs at all times. 2. The Party Leader is in loco parentis and should at all times be responsible for the party’s welfare and the good behaviour of the party towards property and other people and to ensure that party members should be acting reasonably at all times. He/she should ensure that any damage caused by any member of his party is paid for immediately at the centre. He/she should ensure adequate supervision of party members at all times. 3. The company reserves the right in its absolute discretion to cancel a course at any time should the representative of the company or member of the senior management of the company or other agent/ supplier/carrier/owner or manager of the Centres or accommodations or other person in authority consider that the behaviour of the party is unacceptable. The responsibility of the company for the party and its expenses will then end. No compensation payments will be considered. Full cancellation charges will be applied and no refund will be given. Furthermore, we will not be responsible for any cost incurred as a result.
