Caves & Dales Day
After breakfast it's time to head off to the caves in Ribblehead via minibus, where you'll get to admire the famous viaduct (pretty incredible!). The caves are simple & in short sections & your instructor will ensure your safety & enjoyment. There are easy options so everyone can stay within their comfort zones. The caves are pretty amazing and the limestone has been formed over 350 million years!
After caving, it's time to explore one of the local towns on the way back & then time to relax before dinner & evening entertainment.
High Ropes, Zipline & Earl Crag
After breakfast, you'll enjoy half a day exploring & enjoying our onsite High Ropes course, which has four sections to it. You'll also get a go on our zipline which is awesome fun.
Relax and have lunch & then it's off to Earl Crag, an atmospheric gritstone outcrop topped by Wainman's Pinnacle and Lunds Tower (the latter you'll climb up & inside). You'll also have a go at weaselling & bouldering as well as an abseil if you wish to. It's then time to head back and relax before dinner followed by evening entertainment.
After breakfast it's time to head off by minibus to a local resevoir about 20 mins away where you'll enjoy a full day of water sports. For anyone not wanting to take part, we can drop you in Oakworth (where the Railway Childen was filmed) and you can enjoy a steam train ride (extra charge).
The water sports day includes kayaking, raft building & stand up paddleboarding. After a fun-filled day on the water, it's time to head back, relax & enjoy dinner and the evening entertainment.
Malham Cove & Goredale Scar
After breakfast it's time to head off to Malham Cove & Gordale Scare where you'll be amazed by its grandeur and scale. It's pretty impressive! Here we'll take a walk to Malham Cove where we can walk right to the top (if you wish). Numerous scenes for Harry Potter were filmed here. We'll also take the walk via the beautiful Janet's Foss to Gordale Scar where we'll scramble the rocks beneath this impressive feature & on the way back see some ancient settlement ruins. On the way back we'll stop at Billy Bob's Icecream Parlour where you can treat yourself to an icecream if you wish & the kids can enjoy the amazing adventure playground built from hay bales & rope swings (you won't want to leave!) In the evening, you can take us up on our free babysitting service if you wish and go out for the evening...or stay and relax at HA.
Climbing, Archery & Low Ropes
Today is a fun day at HA enjoying a range of our onsite activities including climbing, archery & low ropes. Climbing is a half day session and takes place on our indoor climbing wall. You'll start with some easy climbs & you can make it as difficult as you like as the climb progresses, guided by our instructors. After lunch, you'll enjoy a half day of finding out if you can actually fire a proper bow & arrow with any accuracy.
Once you have mastered the basics and safety is perfect then it’s competition time with interfamily competition, family v family and of course you will want to post a good score in the group vs group competition running throughout the week. You'll then
have a go at our deceptively difficult low ropes course. Low ropes has many different elements to it, perfect for a game of `The ground is lava`. After a fun day of adventure it's time to relax, have dinner & enjoy the evening entertainment.
Orienteering Competition, lunch & farewells
After breakfast it's time pack and then enjoy a fun on-site orienteering session, a great way to spend your time with the other families before you say farewell & head home, after lunch. What a great week!
The planned evening programme includes labyrinth (our indoor cave system), blindline, a quiz night, a teambuilding/prob solving activities night and a movie night for the kids with free ‘child minding’ from instructors giving adults a night off to visit local pub or just relax round the campfire with a drink on site.
