13-17s Multi-activity course

Date: Monday 22 - Friday 26 Aug 2022
Location: Lake District

Whatever your level of injury, you’ll have the chance to try out a range of outdoor activities including canoeing and kayaking, climbing and abseiling, sailing and hand cycling.

The course is held at the Calvert Trust in the Lake District and they have lots of experience of running courses for people who use a wheelchair or may need a bit more support.

Our courses are a great opportunity to try new things, meet other people your age with a spinal cord injury and have some fun!
