Newlands Adventure Centre’s residential Multi Activity courses run from 2 to 7 days and are suitable for children, youths and adults alike. We will consult with you at all times to design a package for your group that suits your aims and is appropriate to the group’s age and abilities. You choose the activities from our extensive list and we will put together an exciting programme that will keep everyone busy from breakfast to bed time.
All activities are geared to the participant’s abilities, age and prevailing weather. Newlands operate well within the guidelines laid down by the Department of Education and National Governing Bodies as well as having our Adventure Activities Licence (A.A.L.A).
We operate a strict participant / Instructor ratio, again in accordance with the set guidelines and Newlands activities are run with groups of either 8 (Kayaking, Mountain Biking, Canoeing, Rock Climbing)or 10 people (Ghyll Scramble / High Ropes / Archery / Orienteering / Mountain Walking / Team Building). We never go over the set ratio and if you are participating adult accompanying children, you have to be included in the group total.
We provide all the safety equipment required and all Instructional staff are CRB checked and first aid qualified.
We can provide activities, accommodation and food all year round for a maximum of 130 people.
