Adventure Weekends

DBF Bader Braves Adventure Weekends

Our Adventure Weekends help youngsters affected by limb loss to gain confidence and make friends.

It is amazing to see the almost instant affect one of our Adventure Weekends can have on a young person who is affected by limb loss.

With the experienced and caring assistance of The Calvert Trust we run Adventure Weekends in Kielder forest and Exmoor consisting of all kinds of exciting outdoor pursuits, including:

  • Rock Climbing
  • Canoeing
  • Kayaking
  • Archery
  • High Ropes
  • Abseiling
  • and more…

Any child will gain confidence from taking part in any these exhilarating activities, but our Braves who are quite often missing one or more limbs have so much more to gain, especially when they are achieving the same results as their able bodied peers and siblings. In the case of bad weather, alternative activities are available.

Weekends are open to children and families, and accommodation and food is supplied. There is a wonderful atmosphere as families share this very positive experience and watch their children make new friends and accomplish new challenges.
