The Rockblok | New for 2015 our FAB Discovery Package 2

Find, Achieve, Believe!

FAB Discovery 2 (find, Achieve, Believe)

Explore, learn and discover, students will arrive at a pre-set location away from our centre and will need to navigate their way to The Rockblok where they will take part in both climbing and high ropes sessions. The aim will be for students to follow a trail of discovery both physically and mentally following a storyline plot throughout their journey. They will be tasked to record their individual progress throughout the day within their own discovery log (to be provided by The Rockblok).

To finalise and close the session students will be offered exit routes along with advice on where they can continue to be involved, learn more and carry on developing skills learned.

Number of participants per day: 30 to 60 (smaller numbers can be catered for)

Advice Note!

With this package we can also introduce an element of water craft in the form of raft building. Students will arrive once again away from our centre at an alternative location, here they will need to navigate to an expanse of water. Blocked by this they will be issued with equipment to construct a raft with which to cross to the other side before continuing onto the climbing and high ropes at The Rockblok (once changed into dry clothing).
