  • Multi-Activity Course for Primary Schools

Adventures which inspire success

Our Multi-Activity courses offer more than just adventure. On land, water and in the air, your pupils will discover how 'giving your all' brings its own rewards.

Whether they're finding the courage to jump backwards off an abseil tower or building a raft to race across the lake, each challenge helps pupils strengthen friendships, learn new skills and build confidence.

Activities

There are four 90 minute sessions each day and a huge variety of outdoor activities to choose from - each designed to bring out the best in every individual.

In the evenings, the fun continues with our lively entertainment sessions. We keep them busy and laughing until bedtime and you get a chance to relax!
