Get the taste for adventure

Our Danbury and Mersea centres are offering the chance to come along and have a go at a hand-picked selection of our exciting activities.  We’re opening our sites to the public on selected Saturdays so the whole family can experience a fun day out on our zip wires, archery and caving to name but a few. There is no better way for 8-80-year-olds to try exciting new experiences in the outdoors!

From £8 per person per hour, or £20 per hour for a family of 4, you can spend quality time on our Aerial Adventure, Aerial Trekking, Archery, Caving, Climbing or our 80-metre zip wire.*

You’re in safe hands – our professional instructors provide constant supervision, and all technical equipment is supplied. Participants just need to bring comfortable (and waterproof!) clothing and footwear as well as a packed lunch and a drink.
