Experience the magic of Barretstown!

Whether it’s a conference, team building day, company meeting or a treat for your hard working team, Barretstown can deliver the ideal balance of facilities and activities to meet your requirements no matter how big, small or unusual.

Please be aware that Barretstown can only facilitate groups when we do not have children and families on site. The months of May and September are typically very busy for team building visits, as the Summer has very limited availability because of our camp schedule. We will do our best to accommodate your group but the more notice you can give us the more likely we can secure a date for your team.

How we work together
To date over 400 GSK employees have volunteered and experienced first-hand the magic Barretstown brings to children and their families.
GSK frequently use our fantastic facilities for a variety of events, including conferences, team building and team away days.
Claire Hitchcock, GSK’s Director of Europe and International Community Partnerships explains:
“GSK’s long-term investment goes beyond giving cash. We see Barretstown as integrated with the business and that there are huge benefits for both organisations. GSK uses the Barretstown site for team building and meetings as well as working with Barretstown on marketing promotions. GSK employees have also provided essential business expertise and training to the Barretstown team”.
The volunteer programme has been one of the most successful aspects of the partnership and over 400 employees from GSK have volunteered their time, from participating in team events through to acting as chaperones and translators on the camping programmes. This in turn has enriched their personal experience and created a great sense of pride in working for GSK.”
