Summer Fun Day 2016

Thanks to everyone for coming along yesterday for our 8th annual Family Fun day… the event was a huge success! Over 200 people visited the centre today! Once again, we were lucky with the weather except for a couple of showers! Lots of children and adults enjoyed climbing taster sessions with our friendly coaches.

Thanks to our friends at Diggerland and Dougie the Diggerland Mascot! JCB Rides around the car park were a huge hit with people queuing all day!

Marshmallow Toasting and Bushcraft proved popular with children and adults alike!

Upstairs, children were able to touch and learn about various reptiles and insects including snakes, bearded dragon and spiders!

Everyone loved ‘hook a puck’ and the traditional fair games too!
Most people took something home from the tombola and raffle! The correct number of sweeties in the jar was 384, a very very close guess of 383 won the whole jar!
Thanks to our fantastic climbing centre team for all their hard work today and leading up to the event. Also thanks to local businesses for coming along and donating raffle prizes.
Special thanks to Diggerland, Easy Adventure Bushcraft, Beamish Wild, Laura & Phoenix Cards, Libby LT Entertainments, Broom Mill Day Spa, Durham Brewery, Beamish Museum, Crook Hall & Gardens, Northeast Outdoor Pursuits Centre, Check out our Summer Camp for more climbing and bushcraft activities for children!
