Instructor-led activities

Especially for the most active and adventurous amongst you, we have a programme of START instructor-led activities on the Park. Our exhilarating programme, designed for all the family, includes both ‘Active’ and ‘Pool’ sessions, all with enthusiastic instructors.

On the Park there are plenty of laid-back activities to enjoy in your own time, but while you’re on holiday it’s always fun to try something new that gets the pulse racing. Our instructor-led activities are a great way for all family members to step outside their comfort zones.

Our START instructor-led activities are categorised into ‘Active’ and ‘Pool’ sessions, which isn’t to imply that the pool-based activities are anything other than super energetic. Whichever session you book, you’d better be ready for action.
