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. Our aim is to ensure that every child on our course learns something positive about themselves and others; we want everyone to leave at the end of the session feeling empowered, proud and ready for the new challenges that face them.

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

Samantha Shuttleworth

We hosted an event here with our students from Student Living Derby Halls of Residence. It was a brilliant afternoon, such fun and all the students had such an amazing time. Can't rate the staff highly enough, very supportive and encouraging. Great activity for groups!
