Five days for the price of four at Essex Outdoors this Easter

15 March 2016

Essex Outdoors' award winning action-packed School Holiday Activity Days are the ideal way for young people aged 8-16 to try exciting new outdoor experiences during the Easter Holidays between 30 March and 8 April 2016.
The activity days cost £30 per child but as a special offer this Easter, Essex Outdoors is offering a fifth day free if four School Holiday Activity Days are booked.
Running at all four Essex Outdoors centres (Bradwell, Danbury, Harlow and Mersea), young people will work in groups of ten and have the opportunity to take part in four fun, safe and challenging activities ranging from archery, canoeing and climbing to high ropes, mountain biking and zip wire.
Essex County Council Cabinet Member for Finance with responsibility for Traded Services, Cllr John Spence, said: “If like me you love pushing yourself to your physical limit and are partial to the odd Easter Egg over the Easter holidays, Essex Outdoors activity days offer a great opportunity for your children to challenge themselves in the great outdoors and to burn off the extra energy from the chocolate treats the Easter Bunny brought.  What a great way to spend the Easter holidays!”
All technical equipment is provided - participants just need to bring comfortable (and waterproof!) clothing and footwear as well as a packed lunch and a drink. Participants are supervised throughout the day by professional, qualified instructors giving parents peace of mind and children a great high quality adventurous outdoor learning experience. The available activities vary at each outdoor centre so to make sure your favourite is included check on line first.
Experts at delivering outdoor education and adventure for more than 40 years, School Holiday Activity Days at Essex Outdoors are a popular choice for parents and children alike.
