Description

Young Bristol Holiday Club Wow Day!

For ages: 8-16

New for 2017! Wow Days allow children to be dropped off between 0800hrs and 0900hrs. Children may be collected from Pooles Wharf between 1700hrs and 1800hrs. Due to the additional time, we are able to offer even more exciting and challenging activities!

Rock Climbing: Experience the thrill of real rock climbing in the Mendip Hills, South of Bristol. Your fully qualified Instructor will help you into a harness and helmet and teach you all the skills you need to scale 40ft rock faces and belay (hold the ropes) for others.

Abseiling: Having learned the ropes in climbing; now it is your chance to take control and abseil down a vertical rock face! You can go at your own speed down the ropes but don't worry! Your qualified instructor will be close at hand to keep you safe and secure in this exhilarating experience.

Stream Walk: Now that you know the ropes, we'll give you wellies and waterproofs and it's time to put your new skills to the test. Climb a series of small waterfalls in the picturesque Mendip Hills and finish by climbing the last big waterfall attached to a climbing rope!

Format of the Day:

The meeting place will be: Pooles Wharf Activity Centre, Hotwell Road, BS8 4RU. (Next to the Grain Barge Floating Bar/ Restaurant)

Please bring: lunch, snacks and drink, warm clothes, sun screen.

Wear loose trousers and closed shoes (not flip flops or sandals). Trainers or lace up shoes are perfect.
Your child should arrive at Pooles Wharf between 8am-9am, where they will meet the instructor and the other participants before setting off for the activity site at 9:15am. (It is a 30 minute minibus ride to the Mendips).

When the session has ended at around 4:30pm the children will return to Pooles Wharf and wait to be picked up at 5pm - 6pm. Parents/carers will be contacted if their child has not been collected by 6pm.
