Skern Lodge Outdoor Activity Centre
Come and see why we were voted the Best Active and Sporting Experience in Devon 2017/18.
Surf – Kayak – Climb
Skern Lodge offers a range of activity options throughout the year, but none better than during the school holidays.
Children from 8 years, can join our Adventure Week programme. We offer a mix of activities throughout the week including surfing, bodyboarding, assault course, big zip wire, river kayaking, rafting, climbing, high ropes, abseiling and lots more.
Families can either choose to join others on our Adventure Day programme or arrange their own Private Session. Pick from our range of activities to make your perfect day.
Looking for a family break, we have some great short Active Family Breaks running throughout the school holidays too. All food and accommodation provided and two action packed days with our friendly and supportive instructors.
We are also open to private bookings throughout the rest of the year, so give us a call.
What are we doing the rest of the year? We are offering residential courses for schools, colleges, companies and various other organisations. We welcome your enquiry if you are interested in any of these programmes too.
