Roll up! Roll up!! Just kidding it’s not a new street food sales initiative 😂

It’s Spanner, John, Dave, and Kelvin putting the finishing touches to the new wash room and water collection area.

The team have added two new clear tarpaulins to the sides, one can be rolled up when the weather is nice to let in more light.

Amazing work and a great deal of thought goes into enhancing the camp site, to ensure our guests have a great experience.

But to be honest they would make great street food vendors 😂

Conflict can arise in any situation!

It is usually a sign that people are engaged and passionate, but not always working towards the same goal.

Failing to respond to conflict can lead to a loss of production, increased absenteeism & attrition and on rare occasions, lawsuits, so it is in everyone’s interest to strive towards a solution based outcome.

Our team of CPD accredited trainers know from experience that your business and the needs of your team are unique!

By listening and working with you, we can create and deliver workable solutions that will help empower you and your team to drive that positive change.

Here’s what our recent course attendees at Cornwall Council had to say after their Conflict Resolution courses.

👍Great mix of theory & pratical skills
👍Physical techniques very usueful
👍A great insight into the law
👍Practical applications
👍Knowledgeable trainers
👍Great environment
👍Excellent pace of course delivery
👍Trainers were absolutely superb

Coming soon 😊 our amazing Wilderness Navigation Course

All too often we read in the papers and hear stories on the news of people getting lost and into trouble because they have relied entirely on GPS to navigate around the hills and countryside. As a rule of thumb we at Footsteps of Discovery believe everyone should have a good base knowledge of conventional navigation using a map and compass.

Our Wilderness Navigation course is designed for all ages and abilities and will give you the skills required to head out and explore our beautiful woodlands and coast lines under your own steam👍

With availability in both March and June 2024 with the option of a one day course or overnight stay! This session is perfect for family & friends, corporate retreats and community groups.

Check out our website for full details
