Based on ideas used for Management Training and by the Armed Forces, Arena have developed a series of Team Tasks that are designed to develop youngsters' ability to work together as a group when faced with various scenarios often unrelated to normal everyday life.
Participants are divided into groups, briefed on the objectives of a particular task, the materials available, and the ground rules. We look for and encourage, individual skills such as initiative, leadership, creativity, decision making, flexibility and team building.
Quad Bike Trekking
Arena Pursuits is able to offer Quad Biking for children and teenagers in the 10-16 year old age group, as well as the traditional Corporate, Social and Adult Groups. All bikes have electric start and the gears are automatic.
After the initial introduction and briefing on the safe use and handling of the Quads, riders will be taken out in groups of up to five to practice their riding skills around the parkland area and slalom. Once they have mastered these the instructor will take them out to ride around some of the 8 miles of private tracks and headlands.
Arena is one of the very few sites in the country to offer Paintball Games for children from the age of 10. Players are issued with safety equipment in the form of goggles, face masks, balaclavas, and all games in both parkland and wooded settings are strictly controlled by the adult marshalls.
Paintballing is an ideal activity for "letting off steam" and can offer positive and enduring benefits - friendship, team spirit, self confidence and most of all FUN.
Early Learning Driving
Minimum Age 11
An ideal opportunity for children and teenagers to learn the basics of driving a Land Rover Discovery on large open grass areas free from traffic and other distractions to drive off road in safe surroundings.
Having mastered the controls and gears, they can then venture on to our 10 miles of private roads, tracks and headlands all under the careful eye of our experienced instructor.
