Night Walk


A very popular first night activity. Prior to the walk, groups are given visual planning of the route along with a map, two-way radio and flashlights. Teams are driven off-site and dropped at an agreed starting point. They will then need to find their way back to Fairplay House whilst being responsible for keeping their team safe.
