Brownsea adventure weekends

Make the most of the long summer evenings with a family adventure on Brownsea Island. With lots of family activities available and a campsite overlooking the sea, Brownsea adventure weekends are tailor made for time well spent in the outdoors.

  • Booking essential

Over the course of the weekend there's plenty of things to see and do; swing into action on the low ropes course, test your skills on the archery range, or join a guided coastal ramble with one of the rangers. Whatever the age, there's plenty to keep little legs busy. (All activities are sold separately.)

We have lots of recipe ideas on hand to help you plan and self cater, providing you with the freedom to plan meal times around your activities.
