Are these really free?
Yes! Gaines provides all the catering, activities and teaching you need at one low price!

We understand that organising a weekend retreat typically can make big demands on your team's time. Not so when you come to Gaines! A retreat here offers you and your group time to step away from the normal and benefit from time spent together. Leave the running around, setting up and clearing away to us, and make the most of your time here to build on those relationships on which you rely the rest of the year.

Our activities are designed to be far more than just a fun time between meals and teaching sessions. We will work with you to put together a programme that will best challenge and support your group, working towards some of the social objectives you may have.

Don't know where to start? Our range of activities caters for groups of different ages, numbers, interests and abilities. We will send you a suggested programme, to get started, but we find that empowerment is a useful tool here: Young people have helped plan their weekend are likely to take ownership and get stuck in! So why not try asking them what they want to get out of their weekend away?

There are lots of activities to choose from, indoor and out, and both active and chilled. It may appear bewildering, but just talk to us and we will help you put a programme together that gets the most of of your time with us.

And remember: all of these come included in your price!
