Schools Challenge Cup kicks off an exciting year

Schools Challenge Cup kicks off an exciting year

There’s a lot going on at Lakeside in 2018, and it all kicked off with our Schools’ Challenge Cup. This year more teams than ever before are taking part in our popular adventure Challenge Cup.

Over the coming weekends, schools from around the country will be visiting Lakeside to take part in a variety of activities in a bid to win points. When all schools have competed, the team with the most points will be crowned champion.

But that’s not all…

More Day Camps

For the first time ever, we’ll be running Day Camps – our adventurous take on out of school clubs – for 3 weeks over the Easter holidays. You can find out more about our Easter Day Camps here.

We’re also running a Spooktacular Halloween Day Camp week in October.
