Frequently asked questions
Who can attend a Family Adventure?
Our Family Adventures are designed for family participation so there needs to be a minimum of one adult and one child on each booking. Children must be aged between 6 – 17 years inclusive. The adult must have parental responsibility for the children and is responsible for supervising behaviour at all times even when under instruction by our Activity Leaders.
Are there any age limits on activities and do I need to be physically fit?
The minimum child age is 6 and we are unable to accept children younger than this (even just to watch) due to the suitability of the activities and the general nature of the weekend. The maximum age limit to qualify for child prices is 17 years old. There is no upper age limit for participation nor a particular fitness requirement but people need to feel comfortable taking part in the activities described in the itineraries.
What if I don’t want to do an activity?
We encourage everyone to try each activity but if you really don’t want to then that’s also fine but you will need to stay with your activity line whilst everyone else is doing it…and you never know, you might be inspired and change your mind!
Will I be doing activities just with my family or with other people?
Each family will join an activity line (typically of 12 – 15 people) who will do the same activities together and each activity line will have its own programme which will be advised on arrival at the centre. When placing people into activity lines, we will try to group families with children of similar ages together and to accommodate any requests for friends to be together where this is possible. If you would like to be in the same activity line as friends, then please let us know PRIOR to arrival otherwise we might not be able to accommodate your request.
Will a member of Kingswood staff be available during our stay?
On your arrival you will be greeted by your Family Adventure Hosts who will be available to your family for the duration of your stay and will ensure that all aspects of your holiday run smoothly. They will also be available each evening for all information relating to the next day, meal times, meeting points etc.
