Our popular holiday play scheme is back for another year, as the weather is unpredictable we will be doing a mixture of land and watersport activities.

The activities will be decided on by staff and children on the day taking into account the weather and other equipment usage on the day. The activities will be chosen from: climbing, canoeing, kayaking, archery, sailing, fencing, orienteering and rowing. Advance booking only.
