Ospreys

 

Welcome to Ospreys!smiley

 

Road Trip USA

 

Buckle up, sunglasses on – we’re going on a road trip across the good old US of A!

 

Flying from London Gatwick, and landing at JFK airport New York, it’s time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. Use your map skills to navigate around some of its most famous landmarks and send a postcard home.

 

Learn how to send an email to book a day trip or reserve a room. Make sure you ask the important questions: Does your hotel have a pool?

 

Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions.

 

Then plan a bespoke road trip for Mr Smith and his family of four.

 

It’s going to be a long ride, so put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair – we’re off!

 

Just back from a fabulous activity sleepover at PGL. We didn't waste a second - busy traversing the sensory trail, solving the problem of the giant see-saw, scaling Jacob's ladder, whizzing down the zipwire, aiming arrows to win cutlery for lunch and the ultimate challenge - the high ropes course! Everyone of us achieved something special from facing fear of heights and zipwire phobia (!) to the challenge of sleeping away from home. We worked as a team to support each other and push our limits. Well done all of you!no
