Instructor / Future Instructor Training with Adventure 21

March is a great time of the year to get some refresher training done and there is nothing better than getting wet in the gorges around the Lake District.

Swimming in a safe stopper

The first thing we have planned is a White Water Safety and Rescue course which enables instructors working for Adventure 21 to run sessions in site specific gorges.

The WWSR course is a fantastic course that involves throwing yourself and others into fast moving water and being rescued! its both fun and informative. A must for anyone involved in taking groups near moving water or even just to get valuable experience around water. (its not just for instructors!)

Raft pin release training
The course covers lots of area's including gorges, river rescue, raft rescue plus canoe and kayak rescues.

There are still places left for this course at £150.00 per person for two day so email us at if you fancy coming along.

Busy into January and February 2012

Busy busy busy, that's how we like it, lots of people coming back to us this year and lots of new customers.

I looked through the calendar for this time last year and we are way in front and bookings are now confirmed and deposits paid up through March to July which is great news for us and the bank of freelance instructors.

We have some old faces back this year, when i say old i don't really mean old, just that we haven't seen them for a while.

John, organizing a tug of war
John Kennedy is back with us this year after time off looking after his young daughter. She's now at school, so John has found time to come back and join the Adventure 21 team. John's a great laugh and has been in the game for many years and has bags of experience so fits in well with the team.

School and youth group activity trips

Although schools funding has been reduced over the past few years, we have tried to be competitive with our prices where possible to enable groups to still enjoy adventure activity trips with us.

Team building Blackburn, Lancashire

Keeping activities local and in school is proving to benefit youth groups, keeping the costs of travel down. We have some great new venues in the Lancashire areas for activities and our new paint ball site in Blackburn is running well and being enjoyed by school and youth groups alike.
