A weekend of adventure and outward bound activites at PGL Osmington Bay
– All activity instruction, supervision and use of specialist equipment.
– Engaging adventure activities on land and water to develop different skills.
– Full board accommodation.
– A PGL ‘Groupie’ who will look after you and your group for your entire stay
– A full evening entertainment programme tailored for your group
The activities are aimed at children/students 7-17yrs (ie. born between 28 Oct 2001 – 25 Oct 2012 inclusive)
Children aged 5 & 6yrs old (at the time of the trip, ie born between 28 Oct 2012 – 25 Oct 2014) may also book on. Participation in the activities for 5 & 6yr olds is at the discretion of the PGL instructor per activity as it is subject to height/build because they need to fit the harness/helmet/other equipment/etc. The PGL instructor’s decision is final. The price for 5 & 6yr olds is reduced.
This trip is intended for HE families to enjoy together. . It will run along side the PGL Geography Field Trip which is taking place at the same time.
All children aged 11yrs and below will need to be accompanied by a parent on this trip.
We may take unaccompanied students aged 13yr+ if personally agreed in advance by either Karen or Lou. Please contact either of those two directly before booking to arrange. We would expect that to be exceptional, not least because due to adult ratios/insurance, there is a limit to how many unaccompanied under 18s that we can take overall.
You are responsible for transporting your family to and from PGL Osmington Bay.
If you are interested in being a responsible adult for unaccompanied children aged 13yrs+ and hold (or are willing to obtain) an enhanced DBS certificate) then please contact us.
(However, you will still have to pay for your own adult space)
If groups of friends/families are going, you may nominate the people you would like to be grouped with for the activities and roomed with (see below for further details of how to do that)

- whether your children would be able to share with other children (and nominate the other children). There would be no adults in this room.
- whether the adults would be able to share with other adults (and nominate the other adults)
- whether you want to room together as a family. You may also share with another family – in fact, it would be really, really helpful if you could share with another family if at all possible.
We will sub-divide into groups of 12 people. If you have a preference to be grouped with one or more other families, please also indicate this in the “activity group preferences” box (which appears near the bottom of the booking form)
- whether you would like your children kept together, with you in the activity group
- whether you would prefer your children to be grouped with other similarly-aged children.
- if your children are going to be in different groups, which parents are going with which children.
We will do our best to accommodate your requests but please note that it will be subject to the room & group numbers working out mathematically.
