Castle Head Holiday 2018

Sporting Challenge’s Second Holiday has just took place, between 31st August to 2nd September 2018.

The group went to Castle Head Field studies Centre near Grange Over Sands.  Charlton Mini Coaches based in Burscough took the group to the centre.

The group had a great time and tried: team challenges, low ropes, a day on Lake Windermere including canoes and outdoor art, a bush craft and campfire night, some football and crate stack.

The accommodation was great and the group enjoyed the food which was fantastic.

Edward McCarthy Activities Organiser said: “The venue was fantastic. Our group had a brilliant time. Everyone relished the opportunity to try new outdoor challenges. Some of out group had never been away for a weekend before. The centre was brilliant and had much to offer us. I would like to thank the Sporting Challenge staff who came the weekend. I would to thank our funders who made the weekend possible.”
