A fun filled afternoon will contain various games and command tasks allowing you to grow as a group and prepare for the week ahead.

Each evening after a two course meal prepared by your dedicated field chef the excitement continues with moonlit walks, games of capture the flag and marshmallows round the campfire.

A full evening routine prepares you for the night including teeth cleaning and points of contact.

Days 2 to 4: Wake up in the stunning surroundings of camp. The waft of a delicious breakfast will have you up and eating in no time before the first activity of the day. A short walk or coach ride will whisk you to your activity that can range from Coasteering and Mackerel Fishing to the Dorset Waterpark and Bushcraft to name just a few. Activities can be half or full days and give ample time to enjoy and engage in each activity to create memories and forge friendships that will last forever.

At the end of everyday another hearty two course meal awaits with the ensuing evening activities.

Day 5: Another filling breakfast will give you the energy to pack up your bags and prepare to say goodbye to your fabulous camp which has become home over the last 4 days. It’s not quite over yet as after loading your big bags onto a van, a beautiful scenic walk to the beach concludes with a BBQ and games on the white sand before finally boarding the coach and waving goodbye to the Cumulus Crew.
