Public Activity Days

Our mission as a charity-run Centre is to get children, young people, families and community groups benefiting from the joys of the great outdoors. What better way to do this than open up our doors to the general public  to have a go at different land and water-based activities?

Adults do not have to participate with their child in outdoor activities (but we’d love Mums, Dads, Grandparents, relatives and carers to get stuck in and have a go too!) but we do insist that a parent/guardian stays on site while under 16s are on activities.

Events Coming Up – 2017

This May the Anderton Centre is teaming up with the RYA and British Canoeing to host some very special weekends including the Push the Boat Out days and Go Canoeing Weekend. You are invited to come and have a go at sailing and canoeing on the beautiful Lower Rivington Reservoir or try out some of our land based activities We will also be opening up some of our other activities such as climbing, abseiling, bushcraft and archery for some of the dates.

Feedback

“My grandchildren who had never sailed before had a fabulous time even the capsize!  It was great that they were allowed to go out by themselves and just go for it- no nanny state!  Thank you so much please do more days like this.  Regards, Sue Harris'”
