Barnabas Adventure Centres (BAC) is a national UK Christian charity which supports and encourages 40,000 young people every year. Barnabas achieves its aim ‘to provide an opportunity for young people to develop physically, socially and spiritually’ through the provision of residential and day visit opportunities for groups including schools, colleges and youth groups. A wide range of activities are offered including climbing, abseiling, archery, fencing, gorge walking, high ropes, mountain biking, night walk and bivi, orienteering, kayaking, open canoeing, raft building, team development, go-karting, swimming, football and volleyball.


BAC runs four Outdoor Activity Centres around the country, including:


BAC began its life in 1922 when a group of Sunday school teachers from London decided to take their groups on an adventure holiday. The groups purchased Belgrave House in Littlehampton so that they could return regularly and in 1924 also decided to rent a field at Climping which was used as a canvas camp site. Camps continued to be run at both of these locations for 50 years under the name of the 'Belgrave Trust'. In 1977, Belgrave House was sold in order to expand the work, with the proceeds being used to buy Carroty Wood in Tonbridgemarker which was turned into an outdoor pursuits centre. In the following years, Halls Green, Whithaugh Park and the Frontier Centre were also purchased. The Belgrave Trust underwent a number of name changes before finally becoming known as Barnabas Adventure Centres.
