ACTIVITIES

A comprehensive programme of activities can be provided within our extensive centre grounds and surrounding forest and mountains without the need for transport. For offsite activities e.g. canoeing, transport is required. Either the centre can provide a minibus or alternatively you may provide your own
Low Ropes
The low ropes elements are structured activities that
are purposefully geared toward developing effective teamwork and trust-building. The group support each other to complete the course. Safety and spotting techniques are utilized by all participants.
 
  High Ropes
The high ropes elements are challenging activities that
are literally high-above-the-ground. They are geared more toward individual challenges. Trained facilitators and leaders will guide groups through the high ropes elements 

 
Raft building
Barrels, planks, ropes and water are a recipe for a
thorough soaking and great fun. Castlewellan Lake is a great place, to spend a few hours raft building.......Ideal for groups of adults and children alike. Once equipped with buoyancy aids, helmets and paddles, teams are given a short time to design their raft. A selection of materials are at hand and once constructed some faith is required to take on the other teams in the race
 
Initiative exercises
Like the 'Crystal Maze' we have something for everyone.
Each exercise can help highlight and develop particular team and personal skills including, communication, co-operation, leadership and time management. But, most importantly they are all great fun.
