Multi-Activity at barton hall for cubs & scouts

An inspirational outdoor experience

We know Cubs and Scouts love adventure, excitement, teamwork and fun; we do too. That’s why we want you to get the most out of a weekend away with PGL.

You’ll find our Multi-Activity courses are everything you could wish for in an outdoor course. Your Cub or Scout group will enjoy personal and team challenges; the chance to try new things; the motivation to push a little further and achieve great things.

So how does it work?
We offer different activities each day, all designed to challenge, motivate and energise your Cubs or Scouts.

We believe everyone should get maximum benefit from their course, so we provide more zip wires, more trapezes; more abseiling towers; in short, more of the activities we know your Cubs or Scouts will love.

It’s all about reaching further, achieving more and having fun with friends.

But of course it doesn’t stop there.

We’ve got lively evening entertainment sessions to enjoy at the end of a busy day. Whether it’s swapping stories around the campfire or a crazy session of ‘Wacky Races’, we can design a tailored evening programme that is sure to delight you and your group.

Or you could use time in the evening to work on diaries or badges. It’s entirely up to you.


Looking for adventure?
You’ve come to the right place!
You’ll find every kind of challenge here:
up-in-the sky;
Some in which they stay dry;
some in which they get muddy.
And of course, some where they can get very, very wet!

There are adrenalin rushes and initiative tests.
Chances to build confidence, push limits and support team-mates.

In fact we have more than 50 different adventure activities.
With every new challenge, they’ll be a trained, enthusiastic instructor who will support and encourage your Cubs or Scouts, bringing out the best in them.

It all adds up to fantastic, take-home memories that will last a lifetime.
