Take a look at last year:

 

 

Inspiring in so many ways

Multiple challenges, personal triumphs, learning experiences, achievements.
Plus many exhilarating ways to have fun, of course. That’s multi-activity Adventure with The SHAC. Your Adventurers will learn to work together. They will support and encourage each other to succeed; find the courage to jump, to climb, and to take a leap of faith into the unknown.

The activities are about improving motivation, raising aspirations. Strengthening friendships. Growing. Becoming more self-aware. They’ll take home memories of a trip that made a difference. The difference that will help young people become more engaged and motivated with the confidence they need to succeed.

 

Wet or Dry? Low or High?

We’ve got adventures on land and water; 

Challenges which draw on personal courage; 

Activities where you'll need a head for heights;  

Experiences to develop teamwork, cooperation and leadership.

 

All taught by instructors who love to inspire, challenge, build confidence, enable success and encourage development fully supported by team SHAC to make sure the needs of your adventurer are fully catered for.


There’ll be four different activity sessions each day to keep everyone engaged.

 

Watch the thrill seekers on the zip wire, see who reaches the top of Jacob’s ladder first, help on a raft-building challenge.

 

At the end of the outdoor, action-packed day, there’s still more to look forward to. We run an evening programme – it’s the SHAC's way to unwind and round off the day.

 

From Archery to Canoeing, Sailing, Dragon boating Raft Building to Climbing, abseiling, giant swing etc we've got it covered for the perfect adventure holiday for you little adventurer.

This is set to be a Wet and Wild Adventure located on the Waters Front 


 

Osmington Bay

Osmington Bay,  the home of our Xtreme Adventure holiday! set in 45 acres of grounds with its own access to a beautiful pebble beach and cliff top views. One of the first things you’ll notice is the huge high ropes course with its zip wire and the stunning views of Weymouth and Portland.

This is one of the biggest centres with superb facilities, great watersports and more activities than you can count! Plus an activity exclusive to Osmington Bay – the chance to sail a keel boat! With a great range of holidays to choose from and suitable for all age groups, this is a popular centre for both first time and repeat guests.

Hi Skip

Dylan had such a great time with you on The SHACs Big Adventure.  He’s slimmer, more confident and calmer!

Many thanks, Claire & Andy Newman

My nine year old son has just returned from SHAC’s Big Adventure. He spent five days away from home with no technology and has had the best time ever. I was a bit worried as this was his longest time away from home, but he was absolutely fine. The week was incredibly well run, action packed and Skip and his team looked after the children really well. My son described it as "really fun, exciting and really fun!”

Thanks again

A big thanks to both of you for creating such a wonderful adventure for the children. Sophie had an amazing time - I think we have a lived a minute by minute account of all the activities since she got back!!

Thank you also for the daily updates and photos. It really did make a difference as we could see how happy the children were and what they were up to and that was wonderfully reassuring.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the summer holidays.

Dear Scott and Julie,

Thank you so much for taking the SHAC group to PGL at Windmill Hill. It sounds like Hannah had a brilliant time. Apparently, it was her best ever PGL trip and she is enjoying telling us her memories. It has been great to see your photo updates whilst they were away.

Thanks again and I hope you are enjoying a more relaxing weekend.
