Summer Courses

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak Black Sheep Adventure Sports has cancelled all trips and programs through to the end of May. The health and safety of our participants, staff and the general public is our highest priority and so we’re supporting efforts to to slow the spread of this virus. 

We will be re-evaluating the status of our summer programs and trips on May 15th. Currently, we’re hoping to operate some of our trips and programs from June or July onward into the future. Of course this is subject to change as the current crisis continues to develop. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
