Whether you're a beginner or an expert, or a residential visitor or a day guest, we have a number of challenging and fun activities for you.

Get busy from dawn to dusk enjoying activities such as zip wire, water sports, climbing, abseiling, archery and rifle shooting. Take a look at our instructor-led activities and non instructor-led activities.


Please read about the licenses we hold in relation to health and safety and adventure sports.

Activities for members with disabilities

The ability to participate in activities depends upon each individual. However, we anticipate that all activities are suitable for people with disabilities except climbing at the rocks for wheelchair users. Those with a full visual impairment would need help with some activities.

Events and courses

Each year we offer a range of courses and events  to members and the general public. These include Leader training courses such as the Grand National Archery Society Leader Award and the British Canoe Union courses, as well as exciting Rainbow, Brownie and Guide events. See what events we offer in our our Adventure Made Easy catalogue.

'To me, Blacklands means full on fun. The outside world ceases to exist when you go through the gates and the only things that matter, are the next activity and when the shop opens for ice cream!'
