Family Residentials at YMCA Lakeside

NEW FOR 2017

Choose your own adventures

Our family holidays can be a weekend or week of fun-packed full days of adventure for all the family. As part of your package, you’ll have the opportunity to do 3 activities each day. And with more than 50 activities on site, from kayaking and sailing to fell walking and abseiling, there’s something for everyone. If you’re really adventurous, you can try something new each session, or perhaps you’ll prefer to sharpen your skills with another go at the activities you really love. What if you all want to do different activities? No problem. You can each pick your favourite then meet up later to share your experiences.

Is your family ready for adventure?

If your children are 8 years or older, we’re sure that they’ll love our family adventure holidays. Most activities are suitable for all levels of fitness and abilities, although certain choices are more physically challenging. We can also adapt activities for people with disabilities. Speak to a member of our team to find out more.

Safely taking risks

One thing we never take risks with at Lakeside is your safety. On every step of your family adventure holiday you’ll be guided and supported by our professional instructors. For your peace of mind, we’ve all the certificates you can think of and more. We’re fully accredited by The Adventure Activity Licensing Authority (AALA) and work with them to makes sure we have the highest possible level of expertise and leadership in risk management assessment and safety at all times. We have a permanent team of instructors, and a seasonal team of trusted professionals. All hold all relevant certifications (that we check thoroughly), and many have further qualifications making them technical experts in their specialist field. Added to that, all our instructors are first aid trained and police checked. That’s not all, we put all our instructors through our rigorous training programme so we know for sure that they’re the best.

Stay with us

Our accommodation is basic but functional. For families, we offer private hostel-style dorms as well as a limited number of en-suite rooms. We find that for many children, sleeping in bunk beds is all part of their big family adventure. Unbelievable views come free with many of our rooms. Request yours when booking!

Wining, dining and Wifi

Our self-service restaurant can cater for most dietary requirements* and there’s a licensed bar where you can wind down at the end of a fun-packed day. Just a short drive from the Centre, you’ll also find a number of local restaurants and bars. One of the big attractions of Lakeside is the chance to reconnect with nature and escape technology. But we’re not completely cut off from the modern world. The Centre has free Wifi, so you can share your amazing pictures and stay in touch with family and friends while you’re here.

*Please mention any allergies or special dietary requirements at the time of booking.
