Secondary schools and youth groups

Thrills and skills above the Water

Our activities and programmes are designed to help young people experience the satisfaction of completing new challenges in life. We encourage communication, collaboration and competition, developing an understanding of how to succeed in different activities and how to evaluate and recognise success. While safety is our priority, fun is our philosophy!

National Curriculum links:

We can organise GCSE P.E. Adventurous Activities – indoor climbing incorporating the NICAS scheme.

 

Making your day easy…

At the RockBlok we know that each group is different. We’re delighted to make an itinerary that works for you and can tailor all of our activities. As a guide though, your youth group might enjoy a visit as follows…

Example programme:

  • 09.45 – Arrive at the RockBlok
  • 10:00 – Climbing and High Ropes
  • 12:00 – Lunch (not provided)
  • 12:45 – Hit the trails on Europe’s finest cycle hire fleet or take part in problem solving, orienteering, shelter building and camp fire lighting
  • 14:30 – Ready for home, see you again soon!

 

OK, a bit more detail…

Arrival:

Straight in to our newly refurbished centre. The RockBlok team will be ready to welcome you and give you a full briefing. Our fully qualified instructors carry the relevant NGB Qualification and are CRB checked. Toilets are here if needed.

Get climbing:

We have traverse walls and an 8m high abseil tower meaning there is something for everyone, no matter what their level of confidence or experience.

Up on the high ropes:

Our high rope course provides a daring aerial adventure your group will never forget! As with climbing, we look to develop mutual support and trust, self-esteem, determination and safety-awareness.

Be inspired by our ‘FAB Discovery Packages’

Lunch:

If you ask us in advance we make sure lunch is ready and waiting for your group! With plenty of cafés and lawns there is plenty of room to chill out, rain or shine.

Saddle up:

As part of Rutland Cycling we have Europe’s premier bike hire fleet ready for the next generation of Olympic medallists and Tour de France champs! Traffic-free bike paths, complete equipment, colour maps, full safety and skills training – all you would expect from Rutland Cycling. To enhance your trip we can arrange a fun treasure hunt built in to your cycling adventure!
