These fun-filled, adventure packed activity weeks take place during holiday periods for children and young people. Activities are every day and range from canoeing to climbing, archery to bushcraft and stand-up paddleboarding to trail riding. Our highly experienced instructors will guide the group throughout the day ensuring an amazingly fun and safe day. Children will need a sturdy pair of shoes, warm clothes if it’s cold - a change of clothes if they are going to get wet and we will do the rest.

A full day of fun on the water. Half a day will look at technique and half a day is our infamous Bewl Water Outdoor Centre Regatta. You will need to have a RYA Adult (Level 2) or RYA Junior (Stage 3 Sailor). We will provide you with a selection of performance and entry level boats so that you can try something new! This is a great way to consolidate your skills learned during the week – or maybe as a one- off day just to have some fun.
