How will the children be grouped?

If there are large numbers we will divide the groups either by age, ability or an equal mix of both, depending on the activity.  Children will be given some input on groups yet there are no guarantees that they will be kept with friends or family.

Often these groupings are just for one activity but sometimes are for longer.

What if my child doesn’t want to take part?

What if my child doesn’t want to take part?

At Active Adventure we employ a challenge by choice philosophy.  This means while we actively encourage children to engage in new activities, they have the ability to select their own level of engagement, within their comfort zone.

Every activity we provide can be adapted to meet the individual needs of your child, this gives us the flexibility to cater for concerns, or anxiety, surrounding issues such as height, or water.

If you have something in particular you would like to discuss, especially in relation to altering our activities to meet your child’s specific needs, then please let out staff know when you arrive.
