What will students see and do?
Situated in 50 acres of beautiful rural parkland, Blackwell Adventure has 57 years of experience providing a fantastic adventure getaway to keep kids active.
It was founded in the late 1960s when the Birmingham County Scouts decided it was time to find a new campsite. They converted a country house estate with financial support from a local benevolent millionaire, Douglas Turner, but it wasn’t until 2005 that the centre also opened its doors to schools, colleges, family groups and businesses.
The site retains many of its original Victorian features. However, the activity bases have increased dramatically over the years, making Blackwell Adventure a perfect choice for those looking for everything in one place.
Students can enjoy activities such as zip wire, 3G swing, tree trek, caving, bushcraft, fan descender, tree climbing, abseiling, team challenges, swimming, pedal go karts, archery, pioneering, rifle range shooting, orienteering, raft building, kayaking, indoor and outdoor climbing, high all aboard, grass sleds, giants ladder and crate stack.
