Explore Activity Centre welcomes all Scouting and Guide groups to use our facilities. With acres of space located conveniently close to the M3, this beautiful lake is ideal for canoeing, kayaking and raft building. We also have a large area of woodland and grassland that is perfect for a bit of bushcraft including camp fire cooking, shelter building and crafting. We also have orienteering courses, a low ropes course and many team games. Please see below for some ideas of the packages we offer. We can tailor any visit for your group.


£14 summer deal

Spend an evening on the water kayaking at Explore for just £14 per child. To ensure every child makes the most of their session, groups are normally split into two with each half spending an hour on the water (max 24 children on the water). The other half can spend some time on the land taking advantage of our orienteering or low ropes courses supervised by your leaders.


£14 winter deal

Join us for a torch-lit tour of the lake in one of our rafted canoes (a very stable craft manned by a qualified instructor). The night sky brings out all kinds of wildlife and if you’re lucky you may even see some bats or hear some owls. Along with a campfire and toasted marshmallows this will definitely be a night to remember.


Stay overnight at Explore for just £6 per child. We think that the leaders do such a great job volunteering their time that they are welcome to stay free of charge!
**Weekend activities - additional £2 per person
