13-17s Multi-activity course

Date: Monday 9 - Friday 13 Aug 2021
Location: Lake District

We are thrilled to announce that Back Up courses are returning this summer!

We have prioritised people who had a confirmed space on a cancelled 2020 course meaning some are already full. This means that this year new applications are for a waiting list space. We advise that you still apply though, as spaces do sometimes come up and you may still get the chance to attend! Please read below to find out more about the courses.

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!
