This family adventure day is the perfect day out for kids and adults alike, with the day being tailored to challenge everyone involved at a level suited to their age and /or ability.

Rock Climbing & Abseiling

This sounds like a big challenge to some people, and to others it just sounds like fun! Our team of experienced and professional instructors will make it their mission to make sure that EVERYONE can take part at a level that suits them. If that means going to the top of the 20 metre cliff face and abseiling back down it, great! If that means staying to the low level climbing challenges or smaller abseil, thats great too. This activity is totally about personal challenge, and the local quarry that we use for the session is well laid out to suit everyone's needs.

The beautifully landscaped base area is perfect for family picnics too while you watch your loved ones have fun on the rocks, and importantly it is buggy and wheel chair friendly too!

Special Forces Survival

In the afternoon session, we'll drive a short distance to a location which is perfect for using the natural landscape to teach and hone our soon to be amazing survival skills! Our instructors will begin by setting you all up for a specific survival scenario and then teach you some essential skills in making yourself safe in the wilderness.

We'll cover the five essentials of survival: food, water, shelter, warmth and a big one - MORALE!

We'll discuss the importance of each area and show you practical ways to address each topic SAFELY by using some natural and man-made equipment around us.

An absolutely great activity for the whole family, we guarantee everyone will learn something cool on this session!

All technical equipment and professional instruction is provided
