About us

CMC Adventure, originally known as The Christian Mountain Centre, is a faith organisation where all staff are Christian. Established in 1966, CMC’s main charitable objective still stands today:

“To educate adults and children with all necessary facilities through outdoor pursuit activities to develop their physical capabilities and their mental and spiritual awareness as individuals and as members of society and so that their conditions of life may be improved.”


“To encourage young people and adults to develop an awareness of the wonders of God’s creation and to explore the Christian faith through exciting and challenging outdoor activities. By enabling them to develop their physical, mental and spiritual capabilities as individuals and members of society, we desire to help them live life to the full.”


“To provide opportunities for adventure and outdoor education in a welcoming and inclusive Christian residential environment.”

There is no pressure whatsoever on any visitors to accept the Christian viewpoint or include any Christian activity in their programmes. CMC Adventure welcomes people from all backgrounds, faiths and cultures.

Our two centres, Pensarn Harbour and Bryn Y Moel are set in fantastic locations. Nestled in between the vast unspoilt beaches of the Cambrian coast and the wild beauty of the Rhinog mountain range, the centres are truly set in the heart of Eryri (Snowdonia National Park), a unique landscape offering unique opportunities.

Within a short driving distance of CMC Adventure are fantastic natural venues for gorge walking, rock climbing and mountain walking. Bryn Y Moel is the perfect setting for archery, orienteering and wilderness skills and we can kayak, canoe, stand up paddle board and sail off the quay wall at Pensarn Harbour.

Just 10 minutes walk from Pensarn Harbour is Llandanwg Beach, a perfect place to enjoy an evening.
