‘Adventure sports’ and ‘disability’ probably aren’t phrases you normally put together, but at Calvert Trust Exmoor accessible and inclusive activity adventures are the norm; pupils of all ages with all types of disability take part in adventurous sports like climbing, archery, horse riding and canoeing alongside their peers.
Many guests are surprised by how much they can do at the centre. As recent guests JFK School put it; “Calvert Trust Exmoor in the only activity centre that could cater for the needs of all of our students. I’ve taught one of the students for a year, but I really didn’t know him the way I do now. He is able to do things we simply didn’t know about! The bond between the students has grown, and we’ve gained so much from supporting our young people in this incredible environment.”
Their fully catered residential activity breaks offer a unique opportunity for students of any age and any ability to experience challenging and enjoyable adventure activities in a safe accessible environment. The activities fulfil elements of national curriculum Key Stages 2-4 and beyond, allowing children and young people to work together; building confidence and self-esteem through overcoming challenges.
The centre is a converted Victorian farm in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of Exmoor National Park. The accessible accommodation is National Accessible Scheme accredited, and consists of ensuite single, twin and triple bedrooms. They also offer hoists, shower chairs, electric beds, trembler pads, and other loan equipment to make your stay more comfortable regardless of your disability.
