Kielder Water – Evening

We have just had the dates confirmed for a BADER BRAVES Activity Weekend at Calvert Trust Kielder, Kielder Water, Hexham, Northumberland, NE48 1BS.

This is a wonderful opportunity for disabled youngsters and their families or carers to spend a weekend together enjoying all that Calvert Trust has to offer.

We are keen to get a good crowd together for the weekend and are sure you’d enjoy having your friends along with you so please click on the link at the bottom of the page to download a Flyer, which you can then print and put up on your school notice board or anywhere else you can think of that will alert people to this great opportunity.

CALVERT TRUST KIELDER: “It’s what you CAN do that counts.”

For the adventurous there will be a wealth of exciting activities to try out in a safe, caring and supportive environment with experienced staff always on hand to help. Those who prefer peace and quiet will find it in abundance in the beautiful surroundings; Kielder Water and Forest boasts the largest man made lake in Northern Europe and the biggest forest in England. You can explore this from an accessible Nature Trail that runs from the main centre towards Keilder Water passing the bird hide on the way. Amateur astronomers will also have a field day (or night) seeing the stars as they should be seen under the blackest night skies in England.

Designed around an old Northumbrian farmhouse in a 40-acre woodland site, the award winning accommodation and facilities are renowned and all fully accessible. There is a heated indoor swimming pool (warmer than normal pools) with a hoist and steps; an indoor games room suitable for lots of team activities; a lounge area with bar where you can relax in the evening and a Games Area with pool and table tennis tables and comfortable seating for the less energetic! Computers are also available with free Internet access.


And the BEST thing is that all this will set you back very little….BADER BRAVES go absolutely free! There is a small charge for parents or carers and a nominal one for siblings. To find out more, please contact Keith Delderfield on 01442 826662/Mob.: 07831 596015, email: or fill in and send the automatic email form below being sure to enter Kielder Water in the Subject Field and to copy the Captcha Code into the adjacent box marked “Verify”.

Please click HERE for a downloadable Flyer, which will give you more information and which you can print and put up in your school or anywhere else you can think of where it will get noticed.

We look forward to meeting you there!
