Programme Overview

This course covers two of the categories of Spring Challenge events through one day of land-based navigation/orienteering training and one day of water-based raft training along with some team-based challenges.

It is not only a good way to learn the hard skills, but also a great opportunity to practice your teamwork and learn about strengths and weaknesses that may affect you on the big day!

We’ll also hear from local wellness business owner and previous Spring Challenge competitor, Alicia Mabey from Motivating Me, about physical and mental steps you can take to prepare for your event.


1 night of accommodation at the Peel Forest Eco Lodge is included in the cost. This accommodation is a rustic shared bunk style with a solar system, showers. There is a BBQ, outdoor wood-fire pizza oven, gas burner stove and gas oven and working fridge available. The shower is heated via solar and wetback.

What you will need to bring:
You will need to bring your own bedding (sheets, pillows and duvets or sleeping bag) and towels. We provide hand towels, bathmats, tea towels and cloths for cleaning. The bedrooms are not heated so please make sure you bring enough bedding to keep warm.


Bring food for 2 nights and 2 days. Lots of hearty snacks and a packed lunch for during the day. The lodge has good cooking facilities and a fridge.
