Booking information

Here’s a bit more information about booking with us.

Course Duration

A half day session lasts for either 2 or 3 hours, and can begin at either 10am, 2pm or 6pm. A whole day will run from 10am to 5pm with a break for lunch. The duration of each session is detailed when booking.

Evening sessions finish at 9pm or sunset.

Pre-requisites

All specialist equipment and instruction is provided. Generally, taster sessions are suitable for everyone, but check the “Suitable for me?” information for each activity to be sure. You will get more from the day if you are relatively fit, and buckets of enthusiasm will help you overcome your fears, but we need YOU to provide that!

What do I need to bring?

You should bring warm sports clothing, and full waterproofs, including trousers. Clothes that can safely get wet and maybe muddy will be ideal – don’t wear your best stuff! For wet activities you need a complete change of clothes, a towel and shoes that can get wet.

What’s not included?

Lunch, transport to the activities, and personal clothing, like towels and jumpers.

What will happen if the weather’s bad?

If the weather is unsuitable for your chosen activity, you may be offered an alternate activity. So if it’s raining, we can’t climb, but we could abseil or kayak. If the rivers are too low to kayak, we can climb or go for a scramble. If we can’t find a suitable activity that you’d like to switch to, we will rearrange for free to a different date, but we won’t issue refunds.

What if none of the dates I want are available?

Contact us, as we sometimes get cancellations and extra availability. You won’t be charged anything until we’ve agreed a suitable date. We can also email you course dates as they become available if you like.

Can I send my kids on their own?

Sorry, we only take unaccompanied kids on Kids Summer Camps. On other activities, they must be accompanied by their own parent.

What’s the minimum age for activities?

Kids need to be over 10, or 14 for white water kayaking.
