Adventure Activity centre
For outdoor adventures in South West England, look no further than YHA Okehampton Activity Centre. This converted Victorian Railway building is set in 1 acre of grounds on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, offering a unique combination of wilderness and accessibility. The site is very much designed with groups in mind, with optimally positioned leader rooms, drying rooms, group rooms, meeting areas and outdoor activity sites in abundance.
Okehampton is ideally situated on the edge of the National Park, with wilderness areas accessible from the door. The moors, tors, crags and lakes that we use as our outdoor learning venues are all within easy reach via our fleet of minibuses. Every aspect of our Adventure activity provision is carefully designed to enhance a group’s learning potential and the overall quality of the experience.
Activity groups will be guided through the basic skills required, enabling participants to experience the adrenaline rush as they push their personal boundaries and their confidence grows. Combining skill and strength with a little courage, they will come away with a sense of satisfaction and a taste for adventure. We work with the leaders to ensure that the programme, venue, content and style are all adjusted to optimise both the group and individual learning opportunities.
On-site activities can include archery, bushcraft, low ropes course, orienteering, climbing wall, cycle tours, team building exercises and night walks/navigation challenges. Off site, our numerous venues ensure the optimum locations for rock-climbing, gorge-scrambling, abseiling, canoeing, raft- building and weaselling, and include themed watersports or Meldon days that combine several activities in one experience.
