About us: Who we are

PGL is the UK’s leading provider of activity courses and holidays for schools, colleges, youth groups and individual children and young people, with centres spread across the UK, France and Spain.

In addition to adventure courses, we also operate a programme of cultural, language and sports tours for schools to UK and European destinations.  In winter, we also arrange inclusive ski packages to well-known European and American resorts.

PGL is widely recognised as the UK’s original and biggest operator of summer camps. In this context our name became known as “Parents Get Lost”, but we now also operate a programme of family holidays so that parents can come too!

2007 was our 50th Anniversary year, so there is a tremendous amount of experience invested in all our courses, tours and holidays. We are proud of our achievements and reputation, but never complacent. We continue to build on our expertise – ensuring that the experiences we offer are safe, friendly, exciting, educational, challenging and fun!
