Our centres offer a huge variety of activities

SSE Outdoors activities are... Legendary!

You can choose from a huge range of on and off site activities across all our centres and our managers will put together a superb programme for your stay based on your choices.

Our fun, and highly qualified, instructors bring all our activities alive and even the most apprehensive of children feel safe and secure to ‘give it a go’ and surprise themselves at their personal achievements. Read about our risk assessments here.

Your centre manager will be more than happy to discuss adaptations to activities and programmes, especially for any SEN children you may have, so do
get in touch to find out more.
