Additional notes

The Campbell Room is equipped to suit up to 24 people; larger groups are possible but need to bring additional equipment. Please contact us to discuss special needs requirements. Our web site contains much more information, additional activity ideas and many useful links. Since groups have exclusive use of the centre, we are also able to accept bookings from other supervised youth organisations, school and university groups, walking and cycling clubs, and others.
