School Holiday Activity Days

Essex Outdoors action-packed activity day experiences run at our 4 centres during the school holidays  and are the ideal way for young people aged 8-16 to try exciting new experiences in the outdoors!

Working in groups of around 10 young people, your child will have the opportunity to take part in up to four fun and challenging activities each day, ranging from archery, canoeing and climbing to mountain biking, high ropes and zip wire. 

Constant supervision during the day by our professional instructors will give parents peace of mind and ensure kids have a memorable day!  All technical equipment is provided - participants just need to bring, comfortable (and waterproof!) clothing and footwear as well as a packed lunch and a drink.

The activities listed below take place between 9.30am and 4.30pm, with a break for lunch at 12.30pm. Young people can be dropped off at our centres between 8.30am - 9.30am and collected between 4.30pm - 5.30pm. During these times, young people will partake in supervised games.
