The Multi-Sports programme fits into four main areas and timetabling allows students to experience at least one activity from each these per day:
- Camp extreme activities such as Archery, Sumo Suits, Zorb Balls (NEW), Gladiator Joust (NEW) & our Giant Bouncy Castle offer risk taking and character development and a better understanding of how to keep safe.
