ARC Adventures was set up in 2017 with the mission of creating a community of humans who push boundaries, aim for the impossible, and learn to value what each individual has to offer to themselves and this world. ARC believes in the power of the outdoors and how connecting us to nature can achieve this. Forming this love and connection to the environment will consequently give the drive to young people to protect it. 

None of the intensive and hard work ARC achieves with young people would be possible without the help of its core team and volunteers. So, meet the team and those past faces that have made all this possible.

Pete has  over 15 years of experience in working with young people in the outdoors. He is a qualified Activity Instructor as well as having a diploma in education studies and a plethora of activity specific qualifications.

He has worked within the major outdoor providers in the country both as an instructor and a staff trainer, has experience as a youth worker with both NCS and the Princes Trust and has worked as an external specialist for Pupil Referral Units.

Pete is a qualified Mountain Leader, Paddle sport Leader, Caving & Climbing Instructor and is always updating and expanding his knowledge.

In 2017 he founded ARC adventures to specialise in developing unique courses within the outdoors to address specific issues that certain client groups present and to try and push forward the quality of what outdoor education is capable of.

He has been successfully delivering these to schools, challenging groups and Pupil Referral Units ever since. 

Pete is also an avid Climber, Caver, Builder, Philosopher & Explorer who on a wet day can be found in a board game café eating ice cream.

Founder & outdoor instructor

Dani has been working as a creative for over a decade. She started her own graphic design business after years in a multinational company made her realise she preferred to interact with her clients one on one. She joined the team at the start of 2022 to help show off the magic that happens over at ARC – she saw the old website and brand and thought it didn’t do the incredible work any justice.
Dani has lived here, there and everywhere; she runs around the world with her shadow, Maui, but has found that this little nook in the Brecon Beacons is worth a pause… the work ARC does with young people is so beautiful, she wants to support it in its mission.
When Dani’s not on the computer making things look pretty, you’ll find her out on all the sessions making sure you’re kitted up, fully supported when going on your adventures and demonstrating that, although terrifying, all the activities are worth pushing yourself through.



Our, not-so-wee, Scottish ball of energy and fun: Lewis brings his all to every session and makes sure that even the rainiest days are full of “pazazz”.

A multi-activity family week with ARC at the age of 15 turned into a long-term bond with both Pete and this ARC Adventure which has had Lewis’ support through the toughest times. 

You’ll find him by your side when you’re scared of the water or he’ll be your 6a.m musical wake-up call when you need to move it – move it. If he’s not by your side, look up, he’s probably up a tree.

If you’re lucky, you may catch Maui on site: He’s our personal stick collector, face licker and all around every young person’s favourite motivator.

Feel free to greet him with a hug if you see him shiver – he was born in the tropics of South America and doesn’t know how to handle the Welsh weather and its infamous sideways rain.
