“We can’t even tell you how much these three days meant for them and for us. All the experiences, all their achievements (and failures), their new friendships, the bonding time we had as a family – all of it has been completely invaluable. Some truly wonderful lifelong memories have been made along the way.”

It was lovely to receive this feedback from a member about our event the weekend of June 29th-July 1st. So what goes into a Big Adventure Weekend?

Take a fantastic bunch of Potential Plus UK family members, a quiz night and Julie and Rebecca from Potential Plus UK.

Add a giant swing, oodles of vertical challenge and some zipwiring. Throw in some wet work with canoeing and raft building. Squeeze in the challenge course, archery, a sensory trail, orienteering and problem solving. Augment it with Robot Wars, Aeroball and Survivors.  Mix like-minded peers with beautiful (if slightly too hot sometimes) weather, a bit of fundraising and PGL Liddington and their brilliant staff.

The result: an exceptionally good outdoor adventure!  Thank you to everyone for sharing this great weekend.
