Think your school can win? Then take on the challenge.

There’s still time to book your place on our 2018 Schools Challenge Cup.

Our fun, adventure competition takes place in February 2018. Teams of Year 9 & 10 students from schools across the country will compete against one another to be crowned Schools Challenge Cup Champions 2018.

Each weekend, teams of six students from different schools take on the same set of challenges and are awarded points for teamwork, creativity and how well they complete each task. When all teams have completed the event, the school with the most points is crowned the Schools Challenge Cup Champion.

Why will your school enter?

The event runs from late Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon and, as it’s out of season, offers excellent value for money. Tony Ball, Programme Operations Manager says:

“Schools tell us that the Schools Challenge Cup is one of the best value visits they can offer students, and it’s becoming more and more popular.”

Schools enter to:

  • Reward well-behaved / hardworking / high-achieving students
  • Develop team working and problem solving skills
  • Improve students’ self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Build self-reliance
  • Benefit from expert tuition

And perhaps most important of all, to:

  • Enjoy the adventure!

A fun way to learn

There’s something for everyone, from land-based trust activities to the famous raft race, where teams must work together to build a raft that will stay afloat long enough for them to reach the finish line on Lake Windermere.

Through this type of experiential learning, our young people discover the value of applying themselves to a task, and how their individual and team efforts determine their success.

Book now for 2018

All accommodation, food, activities, tuition and safety equipment are included. So, if you think your school has what it takes to become the Schools Challenge Cup Champion 2018 then let us know. Call 01539 539000 or email lakesideenq@fyldecoastymca.org for more information and available dates.
