"Give it a go" Days

Half Day Raft Building

Raft Building is a ½ day activity (i.e. a morning or an afternoon) that takes place on a lake – we usually use Coniston Water, so nice fresh Lake District water! We provide wetsuits, buoyancy aids and all the equipment required to create a raft(s) and test its prowess on the water. The first section of the session allows your team to design your raft to ensure streamlining, speed and robustness. Once our instructors have given you bits of advice to ensure knots in the rope are tight etc., it will be time to get wet! The second section of the session is all about having as much fun as you can through races, tugs of war and little challenges so test the rafts overall. Raft Building lends itself excellently to large groups that like a bit of competition.

Half Day Church Beck Gorge Walking

Church Beck Gorge is a really fun half day session, with 2 jumps in to deep pools, a trust fall, 2 rigged climbs through waterfalls, and finished off with climbing through a 10 meter long waterfall! We fully recommend this as a fun Gorge Walk with loads of challenges throughout.

Stickle Ghyll Gorge Walk

The Stickle Ghyll Gorge Walk begins at the Stickle Barn Tavern, located in and amongst the stunning Langdale Pikes. This Gorge Walk is known for being quite wide, which makes it great for the younger children to take advantage of walking around the waterfalls rather than climbing through them. The largest climb available in Stickle Ghyll is 15 meters high. If you would like to make the day a little more challenging, Stickle Ghyll can be taken as a full day Gorge Walk, where you explore further up through the Gorge to reach Stickle Tarn. The tarn can be enjoyed with a relaxing swim at the end as a reward. The fresh mountain water on this Gorge Walk can be fully appreciated when coupled with an exciting climb around Lower Scout, for the other half of the day.

Half Day Whitestones Climbing

Located near to Newby Bridge in the Lake District, Whitestones offers an adventurous and rewarding collection of routes for climbing. Starting with a 10 minute walk over a small stream and a scramble towards the crag, that is when you can begin learning basic climbing skills, such as belaying, holding ropes for each other and doing some single pitch climbs. You soon reach a height which allows you to admire the views, and feel a great sense of achievement. Due to the variety of different routes available, Whitestones lends itself well to smaller as well as larger groups, and younger children or more experienced climbers.

Corporate Archery

The numerous beautiful lake fronted hotels that The Lake District has to offer, also present stunning grounds that are perfect to use for a competitive but team building game of Archery.
To engage and entertain colleagues on Corporate Away Days or Business Trips, we can organise activities to suit your group at the location of your conference and/or accommodation. Archery or Navigational skills are excellent activities to choose to allow individuals to work together in a fairly competitive environment.
Archery aiming games and scoring competitions are great fun, and we will provide instruction that encourages correct technique in an exciting session, with great quality equipment.
Take a look at our Corporate Groups Page for more ideas.

Tilberthwaite Half Day Gorge Walking

This gorge has a unique and brilliant character. As you journey around the fallen trees and over the huge boulders, you’re faced with brilliant challenges such as trust falls, climbing through waterfalls and an awesome jump in to a deep pool. The unique element of Tilberthwaite is that the gorge walk offers an opportunity for some great climbing along the way as well. To finish, the walk back to the starting point has stunning Lake District views. This is one of our favourite Gorge Walking locations as it offers adventure for families with younger children, as well as offering extra options for adult groups and those with older children.

A Half Day Archery

Archery is a great activity to take part in during your stay in the Lake District. Archery allows you to appreciate the true beauty of the countryside whilst having fun shooting some arrows! Depending on whether or not you have taken part in Archery before, we can provide a taster session to provide basic skills of the game, as well as sharpening up your Archery technique. There are numerous games and competitions that can be fully enjoyed whilst breathing in the fresh air. Aiming games, scoring competitions and the Holiday Game get everybody involved and allow lots of practice to get you shooting towards the centre of the target…which is the main goal after all! Our archery sessions take place at our base in Lowick Green, which also boasts views of the Old Man of Coniston.

Half Day Climbing at Brown Howe

Our climbing venue at Brown Howe in Coniston provides groups with a secluded quarry with real rock as a great basis for beginner Climbing. Brown Howe generally lends itself well to younger children who can work their way up to larger climbs throughout the session as they feel more competent. There is a range of areas on the slab that give the group options of difficulty and challenge.
