Video Games Workshop
Do you love video games and have loads of ideas for a game of your very own? This unique holiday will give you the opportunity to create and develop your own 3D game.
What’s it all about?
This unique holiday will give you the opportunity to create and develop your own 3D game. Using the latest in games design platforms, you can create any kind of first-person game from action adventure to puzzle platformer – the only limit is your imagination!
What do I learn?
We’ll show you how to create your game using state-of-the-art development software. You’ll learn how to create environments, add characters and special effects – even lighting and sound!
There will even be the opportunity to try your brains at AI (Artificial Intelligence) scripting or basic programming.
Do I need any experience?
None at all! We have some really amazing software that will enable even complete beginners to create their own game ready to take home with them at the end of the week.
Do I need any specialist equipment?
We will provide everything, just bring your imagination.

Every day is different
We offer over 50 different activities across all our centres and we pack in as many as possible on every PGL Adventure Holiday. Please note that not all activities are available at all centres; please see the specific centre pages for more information.
The fun doesn’t stop there! We also include fun-packed evening entertainment programmes at all our centres, every day, all year round, whichever holiday you choose.
Boreatton Park has everything you might need including our brilliant sports/activity hall with its superb climbing wall. We’ve also got a football pitch, a purpose-built dining room and the ‘Mini Moose’ lounge. Our 240 acres of grounds include a river, three lakes and a 37ft sandstone cliff for abseiling. There are also five zip wires (including one across a lake), abseil towers, a high ropes course, Jacobs’ Ladders, five quad bike tracks, six giant swings and more.
|Breakfast||Off to the dining room with the rest of your group to fuel up for the day, you’ll need plenty of energy to keep you going. Breakfast includes cereals, toast, yogurts, porridge, and cooked breakfast – you choose!
Don’t forget to refill your drinks bottle before you head off to your first activity
|Morning Activities||Half day making Video Games|
|Lunch||Worked up an appetite? Great – it’s time to replenish your energy stores with the dining room. If you have energy to spare after lunch your Group Leader will always be ready for a quick kickabout with a ball or you could relax and chat with your new friends.|
|Afternoon Activities||Abseiling and Aeroball|
|Dinner||Time to eat again – a different menu each day (and did we mention, often evening meals come with a hot pudding too – or you can stick with fruit if you prefer).|
|Evening Ents||Talent shows, campfires, quizzes and much more – your evening entertainment programme gives you the chance to get together with everyone else in your age group and have some laughs.|
|Bedtime||Bedtime. The younger ones go first whilst older groups have time to chill out and chat or watch a DVD. Then it’s lights out and time to sleep ready to do it all over again tomorrow!|
Please note this is a sample itinerary for illustrative purposes only. Itineraries will be planned by the centre shortly before your arrival.
The mansion house was built in 1857 and is a rare ‘calendar’ house with four main doors, 12 chimneys and 365 windows. There are two floors of dorms with 8–16 beds per room and toilets/showers nearby. This is usually where the 7–10s, and some 10-13s stay.
The ‘Tall Timbers’ Lodges in the grounds have mainly four or six beds in a room with en-suite showers/toilets. These are normally for 10–13s and 13–16s. The 13–16s will also have their own chill out room.
Tents - Our tents stand on hard, ‘all weather’ bases and each has four proper beds. All the tents are grouped together in their own area of the site which has its own shower and toilet block.
