Take part in the first ever Caldecotte Xtreme Challenge

Posted 7th January 2017

Make up a team of 4 and tackle a new and unique challenge at the Caldecotte Xperience on the weekend of 18th and 19th March 2017. Test yourselves against a whole range of obstacles and challenges and you’ll learn what you can do and how to work together as a team.

It’s hard and its great fun!

As you follow a track around the site, you’ll climb, abseil, negotiate the scramble wall, go underground in the caving system, try to strike gold at archery, go canoeing on the lake, run round the lake and finally wade the river on your way to the finish. It is likely to take 1 to 2 hours to complete and each team will have its own start time. Points will be awarded for successfully completing each challenge so we will have a winning team at the end.

It costs just £200 for each team to register and we ask that each person taking part raises at least £200 in sponsorship to support the work of Action4Youth in improving the lives of children and young people across Milton Keynes and Buckinghamshire, through youth clubs, challenges, outdoor education and inspiring experiences.

Call Action4Youth on 0300 003 2334 or email events@action4youth.org for more information or complete the entry form attached.

Your money will support Action4Youth, the leading charity in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes providing positive, often transformational experiences and activities which inspire children and young people. Our aim is to enable young people of all abilities to learn to challenge themselves and work with others – learning what they can achieve rather than what they can’t.

We deliver outstanding outdoor education through our two centres, The Caldecotte Xperience in Milton Keynes and The Longrigg Xperience in Cumbria, which offer an extensive range of activities.

We are also the leading provider of the National Citizen Service and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme in the area. Action4Youth represents over 100 youth clubs and organisations throughout the county giving guidance and support to help their growth and development.
