Adult Activity Break

Activity Weekend: Friday 8th - Monday 11th September 2017


We’re very pleased to invite you to this year’s Activity Weekend. This is a great opportunity for you to get away for a few days, take part a range of exciting activities, and relax with people of a similar age in the evening.


This event is open to anyone age 16 plus (who has A-T or an A-T Like Condition). The cost will be £100 per adult attending (Carers are free). This year we have decided on an active, outdoorsy event. (We understand that this may not be to everyone’s taste, so next year we’ll balance things out with something less physical.)

This includes all accommodation, all meals, and all activities for all attendees (Carers are encouraged to join in on all activities if they would like). 


Where is it?

We will be staying on site at Bendrigg Trust, Old Hutton, Kendal, Cumbria, LA8 0NR, for three nights starting on Friday 8th September (we will check out on the Monday morning). There will be morning, afternoon & evening activities over the course of the weekend. 



All rooms are fully accessible; however most of these are sharing rooms. Some sleep four to a room, so people will have to share (these will be sorted to be all female or all male shared rooms).


Examples of daytime activities (all wheelchair accessible)

Indoor or Outdoor Climbing & Abseiling, Canoeing, Zip Wire, Sailing, Orienteering and much more!

Examples of evening activities

Disco, Film night, Sensory room, Arts & Crafts, Campfire.

We will arrive on the Friday afternoon, there will be an activity in the evening after dinner until 9pm, and then we have free time to sit and relax and have a few drinks.


Saturday and Sunday

There will be two activities on the Saturday & Sunday, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, again, there will be an evening activity after dinner.



There will be a final activity in the morning and we will get ready to leave in the afternoon (once we’ve received our Certificates of course!)
