School Holiday Day Camps

Activity Day Camps 

ONLY at our main site near Skipton – BD22 0AA

Are you looking for a safe, rewarding, challenging and hugely enjoyable break for your kids?

Send your child to a High Adventure Day Camp and see them grow in confidence on their return. It’s more than just an activity camp, it’s the opportunity for your child to gain skills and independence which will all go to further them in the formative years.

Your children are placed into ‘activity groups’ of 10, these are groups of the same age and will do the same activities throughout the week in these groups. This allows them to form close & friendly bonds with their ‘new friends’ and these friendships often last for life.

The day camps start with arrival from 7:45am till 8:25am each day, activities start at 8:45am and every day is an action packed one designed to ensure your child is kept busy until their pick up time from 4:45 – 5:45pm, our staff are all well qualified & experienced instructors. All staff are CRB checked and are permanent members of High Adventure OEC, they are all in the outdoor education industry because they have a passion for outdoor sports and a bigger passion for passing this onto young people.

” Our kids loved their time at High Adventure, every day we picked them up they’d had a new experience and adventure. The timings of pick up and drop off actually allowed us a full day and the High Adventure staff could not be a nicer bunch, thoroughly professional and caring ” Mr & Mrs Cowans

You can book for a single day or a full Monday to Friday and drop your kids off between 7:45 – 8:25am and pick them up between 4:45 – 5:45pm.

Age range 7 years old and up.

All our activities are designed to stimulate and challenge your kids. Activities include canoeing, caving, climbing, archery and high ropes –
