  4. New skills and new experiences in the outdoors

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Killary Adventure Centre for looking after Stephen, and his 5 friends, so well last week. They had a brilliant time - never a dull moment - so many great activities and also good fun. It is much appreciated.
