Activity weekend for fathers and sons in the New Forest

Published: 7 June 2005

Next date: October 21st 2005

Description: A chance to get away from the daily routine and spend some time with your son in the beautiful surroundings of the New Forest. The weekend starts on the Friday evening from around five o’clock onwards and ends on the Sunday afternoon at about 3pm. Shared accommodation is in comfortable wooden lodges. The usual age range of the boys varies six through to sixteen years. The atmosphere is informal with everyone having plenty of time to be together, share experiences of being a father and participate in the supervised activities that are available on site. The choice of activities varies from weekend to weekend but can include archery, abseiling, high rope challenge, catapult building, kayaking and more. Evenings are spent playing outdoor games (some becoming pretty competitive between fathers and sons!) and story telling around a bonfire. On the Saturday afternoon, we all go on a trek across the heather to a local Tea Room in Burley (a walk of approximately 2 hours each way). On Saturday night we have a barbecue. Both vegetarian and non vegetarian diets are catered for.

Cost: £190 for father & son (all inclusive)
