In Autumn, 9 of our activity instructors worked tirelessly to create a new learning space: a slacklining area!
Slacklining is a fast-growing sport involving a taut tape, suspended between two trees or posts, on which participants balance and perform tricks. It’s an activity A+ have offered for a while but are really keen to do more of, so it’s great to have a space of our own dedicated to it.

Our teams are trained to run an amazing selection of adventure activities both from our base here in Oxfordshire as well as around the country. We would be happy to talk to you about the needs of your group and put together the perfect adventure holiday for your school, youth group or team day.
