Get your kids off the sofa and away to camp, for an outdoor adventure that will blow the cobwebs away.
The Ultimate Aventura Outdoor Camps are about to go into session, and promise to turn your little square-eyes into a mini Bear Grylls in the space of one adrenalin-filled week.
The camps are deigned and based on outdoor adventure and activities including survival, nature and (safe) adventure.
Focus is on fun, fitness and embracing the great outdoors and will include group games, team-building activities, survival activities, nature activities, water games, horse stables and the Adventure Park.
In addition, campers (aged between seven and 18) will have the opportunity to tree-surf, zip-line and take part in rope crossing, having (hair-raising) fun while benefiting from hands-on experiences exploring the world around them.
The younger children are encouraged to focus on ability to think logically, reason and problem solve, while the middle age group will be attempting to integrate emotion with reason. The older teenagers will be focusing on developing their identity and independence.
At best, they’ll come back with a wealth of new found initiative and independence, at worst they’ve had a week of fun (and you’ve had a week of peace and quiet). Result!
