Adventure for Adults

“This place is a life changer, if you get offered the chance to go, take it, you will learn so much about yourself and others”

Adult courses are for those aged 18* or over who may be visiting the centre on their own or with a small group of other adults. The courses are of 3 different durations and run on set dates through the course of the year.

Weekends (3-nights, Friday – Monday with 2 full days of activities)

Midweeks (4-nights, Monday – Friday with 3 full days of activities)

Full weeks (7-nights, usually Saturday – Saturday with 6 full days of activities)

Participants may be an individual coming on their own and require no, or very low levels of support, or an adult who requires care support coming with a friend, family member, or professional carer. We ensure that everyone has a challenging and adventurous stay, while also having the opportunity to socialise and make full use of our facilities. Where possible we match different ages and physical abilities in activity groups together**.

*Our Young Adults courses can accommodate 16 & 17 years olds, but they must come with a responsible adult irrespective of their disability or independence.

**We reserve the right to mix groups in instances of insufficient take-up

Please note: prices are for EVERY adult attending an Adult course (service users, care support etc) is based on 2 people sharing a twin room.

Benefits of Adult Adventure Breaks

Getting away from routine

We provide a structured and safe environment for adults with disabilities to enjoy a change of scenery and have a really rewarding break in the beautiful surrounds of Lake District. You will be secure in the knowledge that all our facilities and accommodation will meet your requirements, and that while challenging, all the activities are achievable and fun.

Self-belief and confidence

For many people with disabilities, achieving challenging activities in a supportive environment is huge boost to their sense of wellbeing which can be of benefit to their lives long after the visit has come to an end. Whether someone is trying activities
for the first time, or returning to them after health issues meant they thought they could never do them again, the sense of achievement is immense.

Meeting new people

As a great opportunity to meet new people, and to ensure that everyone has the most rewarding time, where possible we put people of similar abilities and confidences together. Because of the social nature of these courses, we often find that people come back on the same date time and time again to meet up with friends that they have previously made because they have had so much fun together.
