A new workshop, redecorated accommodation and revamped activities are ready to welcome back school children at Grafham Water Centre after being closed for more than a year.
The centre has been “injected with new life” during lockdown while preparing to ensure services can resume in a Covid-secure manner.
Youngsters from across Cambridgeshire can look forward to taking part in residential experiences – building team work, communication and determination – from May 19.
Grafham Water Centre operates all year-round, welcoming schools, youth groups, businesses and individuals to participate in adventurous outdoor activities.
A spokesperson for the centre, said: “We understand and respect that some schools and youth groups may not wish to partake in residential visits yet, so all our centres also offer day visits, to ensure our learning and development opportunities are available to all.
