Scheduled courses: Scheduled courses are available for all activities throughout the year on set dates as noted in the Tariff and Calendar.

Holidays in the UK and abroad: We generally offer around half a dozen overseas holidays every year, with Mediterranean Sun Rock featuring heavily on the calendar. We also travel further afield once or twice a year to exotic locations including Jordan and Nepal.
