Target Spots – aim and take your best shot with these unique instructor lead sessions. Archery, Crossbows and Lazer Clays all on offer here, with great competitions to add that extra bit of fun for everyone.
So with all this on offer we can cater to all ages, there will be something fun for everyone! My personal favourite activity is the crossbow, a lot easier than you think it will be and so rewarding when you get gold! (which I managed to do a few occasions!) Archery is also great fun, and managed to have two teams, boys vs girls, at our activity, the boys won – but only by 1 point I think, so it was close! (we were robbed…)
So why not give one of our brilliant Go Active breaks a go and delve into the fun awaiting you? Fun for all ages and a great way to make new friends while on holiday too!
Happy Adventuring Guys and Dollls!
