Year 6 Residential: Skern Lodge
We are an outdoor activity and development training centre based in Appledore, North Devon. Established in 1976, Skern Lodge provides education, learning and fun through adventure.

You will have received an email regarding information about the Year 6 residential to Skern Lodge. We are really excited about this opportunity and have been really lucky to book a longer trip for this year. Please have a look at the website to find out about the activity centre. We have also added some photos of our residential last year to give you an idea of what to expect!
