Spend the holidays exploring the water and woodland with canoe trips and nature walks around the Rivington & Adlington area. Discover your adventurous side with exciting activities like Raft Building, Archery and Abseiling.
We are passionate about the outdoors and its benefit to young people. As a Charity, we aim to introduce young people of all backgrounds to outdoor activities in a safe and exciting environment. Located just off the M61, we are ideally placed for families living or working in Bolton, Chorley, Preston, Wigan and Blackburn.
Through ‘Adventure Club’ (8–15 years old) or ‘Mini Adventure Club’ (6–7 years old), children will take part in multi-outdoor activity days to suit the group and the weather on each day focusing on the environment and exploring nature whilst having fun. Activities include Bug Hunts, Low Ropes or Wild Den Building with an introduction to Archery, Canoeing and Tree Climbing.
We aim to vary programmes throughout the week, however, we cannot guarantee a specific activity on any given day.
