Take on the challenge!
Our Peak District centre has unveiled a new adrenaline pumping activity that’s sure to excite and challenge school children and teachers alike!
As part of Mount Cook’s ever-expanding offering of outdoor activities, the centre is adding a brand new rooftop zip wire! This new addition will be available to all school groups heading to the adventure centre for 2018 and onwards.
At 108-metres long, thrill-seeking students will start 15-metres off the ground on the roof of Mount Cook and finish in Steeplehouse Quarry. Those brave enough to take on the zip wire will reach speeds of up to 40mph, all while experiencing breathtaking views of the surrounding Peak District.
The zip wire presents a valuable opportunity for both pupils and teachers to take on a new challenge that will help them push beyond their own personal boundaries and experience a new and impressive challenge.
Alongside the multitude of adventure activities on offer at Mount Cook, including a high ropes course, fencing and archery, the zip wire provides an additional activity to develop trust and confidence through participation - perfect for pupils on secondary and primary school residentials.
The perfect residential weekend
Located on the outskirts of the Peak District, Mount Cook Adventure Centre welcomes schools to a unique natural space and an area rich in history. The purpose-built centre offers a fantastic range of activities and gives schools the opportunity to break down the barriers often faced by looking to link learning with safe, outdoor challenges. Children are presented with the chance to develop their ability to work in a team, communicate amongst their peers and improve their problem-solving skills.
With a passion for outdoor learning and holders of the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge, we can provide your group with the reliability and support you need to enjoy a JCA adventure - contact us now to find out how we can arrange the perfect weekend residential that meets your school’s educational aims and desired learning outcomes.
