Ruislip Windmill Rangers
“HOAC has a great setup; the facilities and the campsite are great. Instructors are always good and make the activities fun. All staff were very helpful and everything is well organised. The instructors got on very well with the Scouts and pitched it at the correct level to make it fun. Having sole use of the campsite is brilliant.”
1st Iver Scouts
“Friendly Instructors. Children worked in a team and learnt new things. Overall experience is outstanding from booking to coming and taking part. Children go home full of what they have been doing. Can’t wait for our next visit.”
Ickenham Churches Group
“Clear safety instructions, super professional staff, and outstanding standard of equipment. The staff were outstanding in their helpfulness and efficiency. We had a very vulnerable child in the group who was encouraged to achieve way beyond her expectations. The quality of the instructors was also outstanding and all the children felt safe to extend themselves.”
Nascot Wood Junior School
