The trip will be from Tuesday 22nd May –Thursday 24th May, 2018, return transport by coach is included, as are all meals and accommodation.

This is an exciting opportunity, open to years 3 & 4 children to explore the outdoors, and take part in team building activities, fully supervised by qualified centre staff and staff from Waterside, who will be stopping over with the children. It also provides a shorter taster trip prior to the week-long Adventure week the children enjoy in UKS2.
