Our centres are great for night hikes. There’s plenty of grounds or open spaces to explore as you head out for your walk around the site and surrounding areas. Walk around lakes, over hills and valleys or through woods, (this varies per centre). Whilst you’re making new friends and working off some energy, you can discover star constellations, spot local wildlife and listen to the sounds of nature waking up in the night.
