•    There are camping facilities available in the field behind the Centre (approximately 1 acre).
•    Water stand pipes are provided in the field.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

The Centre is well placed for many outdoor activities e.g.

•    Canoeing and Sailing at Ellerton Park.
•    Mountain biking on many bridleways.

All activities require special safety precautions with trained and experienced leaders.
