Llain offers a wide range of activities on and off site. Our most popular packages are the residential trips where a bespoke programme can be designed to suit your group. We are also finding the day packages becoming increasingly popular where we can offer 2 or 3 ‘taster’ activities. All packages can be bespoke to suit different ages and abilities and can be inclusive for individuals with special requirements.
We can divide our activities into four main categories:
The ‘ropey fun’ activities are based around our sky tower and can include Climbing, High ropes course and the Zip line.
The ‘wet stuff’ mainly happens on the lake and can include Kayaking, Stand up paddle boarding and Raft building. We mainly use ‘sit on top’ kayaks which we find give more confidence to beginners and have a fleet of single and double kayaks as well as new SUPs to add to the fleet. Find more at Kayaking and canoeing .
Our Woodland Ranger activities have become very popular, especially having developed various areas dedicated to small groups around the site including our Bushcraft area on ‘Skull island!! These sessions can be fun, ‘birthday party’ style or more educational using the knowledge of our Level 3 Forest school leaders and IOL SiG members (members of the Institute of Outdoor Learning, Bushcraft Special interest group).
Most activity packages include an element of Team building where team members are given tasks that encourage cooperation, the Mud assault course is easily the most popular of the team building activities!
All activities are run by our highly qualified and experienced instructors who, in addition to gaining national governing body awards, have also been internally assessed by our nominated Technical Advisers who are experts in their specific disciplines.
All activities and equipment have risk assessments and regular health and safety checks.
Great care is taken in the design of each programme and we strongly believe that the course should be tailored to meet the needs of the individual group, therefore party leader input is an essential part of this process.
Most activities are available all year round and we always have back up activities for inclement weather.
Most activities run on a 12:1 (Client : instructor) ratio as stipulated by our Risk assessments. At Llain, we are as inclusive as we can be and are happy to adjust our ratios for groups with Special requirements.
