There’s nothing better than spending quality time together on your holiday. And there’s no better way to do this than getting out and exploring! As well as all the facilities on our parks there are also some pretty amazing things to do in the great outdoors around our parks - set in some of the most stunning locations in the UK.
To make sure our customers make the most of our locations, we have put together our Outdoor ’n’ Explore programme – giving you the tools to get started on your next outdoor adventure. Available at Sandford, Warmwell, White Cross Bay and Ruda.
Learn all about your surrounding environment by taking part in an array of outdoor activities led by our expertly trained Park Explorers. Trained in the art of the wilderness and bush craft, they will guide you through the wonders of the outdoors at the Outdoor ‘n’ Explore Base Camp to discover and learn all the secrets of your surroundings.
Whether you’re trekking along nature trails or building sand sculptures on the beach; our parks offer endless opportunities to spend some quality time together. Join the dedicated Park Explorer who will show you everything you need to know about the local area!
Using the gifts of Mother Nature, our Park Explorers will fuel the imagination by teaching you how to search your natural surroundings for the most interesting art supplies. From natural collages to handcrafted jewellery, this is your chance to let the creative juices flow and create a masterpiece to be proud of.
Wildlife can be very mysterious and sometimes hard to spot with an untrained eye. But most animals leave behind little clues to tell us what they are, where they’ve been and what they’ve been doing. Our skilled Park Explorers will share the secrets of the local wildlife including how to identify species, track animals and understand the local park environment. You may be surprised to find such an array of wildlife surrounding you on your holiday.
Learn the secrets of surviving in the wild with an introduction to practical survival skills led by the dedicated Park Explorer. Our Park Explorers are fully trained in wilderness survival so you really are learning from the best; they will ensure you develop the skills to survive with only the basics through hands on experience. From building shelters using the natural environment to lighting a fire without matches, it’s all about survival.
