HOW DOES IT WORK?

 Watch this space or sign up to our database/ follow us on Facebook.  Camps will run from Monday to Thursday during the Summer holidays with a 9.45am drop off and 2pm pick up. Parents and carers can leave their children with us (once all of the appropriate paperwork has been completed) for an adventure filled day.  

 Limited spaces available

why are we different?

All of our sessions are delivered by experienced teachers, outdoor practitioners and ex-military instructors who are great at helping people of all abilities to conquer their fears and reach new heights. As well as having fun, our aim is to ensure that every child that attends a camp feels included and learns something positive about themselves and others; we want everyone to leave at the end of the session feeling empowered, proud and ready to face new challenges.

The instructors are amazing and so encouraging when you have those occasional ‘I can’t do this’ moments! There are lots of them which means their organisation is second to none, safety is paramount and all this for a fantastically great value price! I didn’t know this place existed but I’ll be spreading the word, Thank you Challenge Academy!

 Claire Parker

Staff were first class, very patient and helpful. Safety is no1 priority but this doesn’t detract from the fun. Totally recommend this for something that the whole family can do together – it’s great for the kids to see Mommy and Daddy more scared than they are! Well done guys!

 Simon J

Thank you to all the staff for a brilliant fun educational day! It gave our pupils with less confidence a chance to shine and our pupils with confidence an extra challenge. The teamwork involved has encouraged our pupils to support each other not only during physical activities but also during class lessons. We will definitely be returning during the summer as one of our invaluable ‘Sports Experience’ programmes

 Rough Hay Primary School

Fabulous set up with really great staff - they ensure that everyone feels safe and are very encouraging whilst allowing them to take the independence to complete challenges - very impressed
