Nottinghamshire families are invited on a camping trip this Father’s Day – with YMCA Adventure Guides!

Nottinghamshire YMCA is inviting families from across the county to join its Adventure Guides programme and take part in a fun-packed camping expedition to Holme Pierrepont this Father’s Day weekend (17-18 June 2017).

Adventure Guides is an activity based programme which focuses on strengthening bonds between dads, and their sons and daughters. The programme, which promotes community, nature, friendship and fun, has been popular in America for a number of years.

Nottinghamshire is the only area in the UK to benefit from the Adventure Guides programme.

Since launching a year ago with support from The Big Lottery, Adventure Guides groups have enjoyed Christmas at Chatsworth House, wooden car making for their a pinewood derby as well as archery, bowling and even a group trip to Planet Bounce.

This Father’s Day Adventure Guides are heading to Holme Pierrepont for camping, paddle sports, laser tag, team games and loads more. This jam-packed weekend is generously subsidised by Nottinghamshire YMCA and The Big Lottery Fund – and the best thing is; there’s still space left for families to join them!

Adventures Guides is open to all families with children, and there is no need to be a YMCA member to participate.

Each Adventure Guides group, or ‘circle’, plan their shared monthly adventures together. Circles are member led. You can join a circle or form your own. Whichever circle you choose, you’ll get chance to meet all the other Adventure Guides at regular meet-ups and expeditions facilitated by Nottinghamshire throughout the year.

Amy Oakes, Sports & Family Service Manager at Nottinghamshire YMCA and employee of 13 years says:
“This is such a great opportunity to meet other families and spend some time having fun! We’re really please to be able to offer these subsidised places on the camping trip so that as many families as possible can come and see what Adventure Guides is all about!”

Price and booking information:
A trip like this which includes all of the activities, an evening meal and breakfast would cost about £75 per person.

Big Lottery Funding is available for families in Chetwynd, Arnold, Aspley, Hucknall & Sutton in Ashfield so that the trip is just £10 per family.

For families in other areas of Nottinghamshire, the team at YMCA will be subsidising the trip so you can join them for just £40 per family.
