Bowles Outdoor Centre ( is running Adventure Weeks during the summer holidays again this year.
The five-dayers cost £200 and will run roughly 0915 to 1615 each day. Group times will be staggered to avoid large numbers in the car park at a time.
During the week, children will take part in all of the activities we offer – including:
• Rock Climbing
• Abseils
• Skiing
• Snowboarding
• High ropes courses
• Lower ropes course
• Team games and activities
• Kayaking in the pool
• Orienteering
• Raft building in the pool
• Bushcraft
• Archery
• July courses will also have an optional water sports day – kayaking, canoeing and raft-building. This optional day will cost an extra £20 because of water fees, transport and higher staffing ratios, making the five day course £220.

Weeks currently available are: 31May – 4 June, 26-30 July, 2-6 August, 9-13 August.

We need a group of at least 10 kids to make it viable (maximum of 15 in a group). If you have a group and can find a week that works for you all I can set up a password-protected course on our booking website and you can share the link and password with your group. You don’t need to collect money or sort the admin – we’ll do all of that.
Kids will need lunch, snacks, drinks etc and to be dressed for the weather. We’ll let you know if they need special clothing depending on their activities – nothing extraordinary!

If you are keen to go ahead we’ll need a team/group name (try to avoid using a school name or you might have people you’ve not invited trying to book on), the week you’d like, and a commitment to having at least 10 participants. Then we can set up the course and you can spread the word. All courses are allocated on a first come, first served basis.

If there are any unfilled slots on May 4th, shorter courses (one to four days long) will become available too, and will cost £45 per day (again, for a minimum of 10 children).

If your course cannot run due to Covid restrictions, we will transfer it to another date free of charge.
If you don’t want to transfer to another date, we will refund your payment minus a 5% admin fee to cover the booking website transaction fees.
