What’s it all about?
If you love heights or have an interest in climbing our Climbing Adventure holiday will teach you how to independently climb and boulder almost anything! At the end of the week you’ll get to use all your new skills when you visit a local cliff for some outdoor crag climbing.
What will I learn?
At the start of the holiday you will be enrolled on the National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme. Whilst enjoying all our climbing and ropes courses you will learn all about pre-climbing checks, belays, ground anchors, bouldering, holding falls and various climbing techniques. Throughout the week our instructors will complete your log book and at the end of the holiday you will have climbed your way to Level 2.
Can I do other activities as well?
This holiday makes the best use of all our activities including climbing, abseiling, trapeze, zip wire and Jacob’s Ladder to teach you all the right rope work and climbing skills. Plus, you’ll also enjoy two and a half days of exciting activities from our multi activity programme.
Do I need any specialist equipment?
No, we will provide you with everything you need. If you have a pair of rock shoes then you may wish to bring them although trainers will do just fine.

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 so you can have loads of new experiences! 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 Climbing Adventure|
|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||Raft Building and Archery|
|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.
