Leadership Challenge at boreatton park
Develop your leadership and teambuilding skills and get a behind-the-scenes look at PGL too!
What’s it like?
Not sure if you want full-on adrenaline activities all day? Maybe you’d like to pamper yourself a bit as well. Perhaps you thought that an adventure holiday wasn’t for you. Well this holiday is a great combination of activities and action, chill and challenge for mind and body.
What do I learn?
You will get the chance to try lots of different things associated with health, beauty and wellbeing, from cardio-circuit and natural beauty sessions to yoga and self defence, as well as top tips for manicures and hair care.
Experiment with a whole new look and find out which of this year’s ‘must have’ colours in clothes and make-up suits you the best. You will have the opportunity to learn about the different elements of a healthier lifestyle with all the fun and challenges that you’d expect from a PGL holiday.
Can I do other activities as well?
Yes, each day you will also get to experience a half day of activities from our brilliant multi activity programme and there’s evening entertainment every night.
Do I need any specialist equipment?
No – we’ll provide any specialist equipment you need.

Every day is different
This holiday packs in loads of activities from our multi activity programme. These are chosen specially to help you develop your leadership and team building skills, while making friends and having loads of fun at the same time. 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||Challenge Course and Initiative Exercises|
|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||Vertical Challenge and Abseiling|
|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.
