The ADRENALINE Summer School (ages 10-16)

If hiking some of the best mountains in England, traversing the side of a cliff on the Via Ferrata, indoor skydiving, sailing on one of Britain’s most iconic lakes and whizzing down the longest zip wire in Europe (and fastest in the world!) sounds exciting to you, then you have found the right place!

Our outdoor education programme will exhilarate and challenge you whilst improving self-confidence, teamwork and leadership skills and giving you that adrenaline high!  Student safety is our highest priority and all activities are led by experienced and qualified staff.
