Our outdoor activity centres offer the perfect place for youth group trips, Christian retreats, uniformed group activities and corporate team building. Whether you are visiting us for a day trip or a residential stay, our centres are equipped with accommodation for large and small groups.


Youth Group Trips

100 years of youth work has meant that lots of things have changed and evolved over time but the one thing that has remained the same is the positive impact outdoor adventure has on the life of a young person. Whether you bring your group away for a day, a weekend, or longer, it’s great to see them taking on new challenges, spending time away from home and conquering their fears in a safe and affirming environment.  You will see your young people’s confidence grow in a way that is not always possible in their normal environment and they will form friendships that can last a lifetime.

They’ll have fun in the outdoors, running around in wide open spaces in the countryside, paddling in lakes and getting wet and muddy. There will be lots of laughter and plenty of high fives, and without even knowing it, they will discover more about their own capabilities, find their voice and learn how to make positive choices. In fact they will acquire skills that will help take them through life.


Christian Retreats

Our foundation as a Christian organisation since 1922, means we understand the importance of providing an environment that allows time and space for fellowship, prayer, worship and reflection.

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing weekend retreat for your church family, a venue for your annual conference, a leaders’ meeting or a long weekend away filled with activities for your Christian youth group, you’ll find everything you need at one of our retreat centres.

Each centre has its own unique characteristics, but common to all are the picturesque locations with beautiful surroundings such as lakes, mountains or beautiful woodland views; all of which provide a stunning environment for your trip.

All four centres are also perfect for church conference meeting rooms and large group accommodation.


Uniformed Group Trips

Rock UK centres are perfect for groups such as the Cubs, Scouts, Brownies, Guides, Cadets, Boys & Girls Brigade and many more to enjoy team building activities for kids.

It may seem like children can sometimes make a lot of noise, but a weekend away on one of our activity trips will help your children to really find their voice. Our excellent team of instructors are great at engaging children in a range of exciting, adventurous activities that give them a chance to challenge themselves with new experiences. They will overcome their fears and grow in self-esteem. They will come away feeling more confident, have better coping strategies, improved social skills and with memories that will last for a lifetime.

Corporate Team Building

Escape from the office, get your team outdoors and discover a unique solution for your business event. Whether you’re organising a training day and need to hire a meeting room or you’re taking your staff team away for a corporate day out, our team building ideas offer a different experience.

Tell us your objectives and we will tailor our team building activities around your group to help you achieve them. If you don’t need activities you can just hire meeting rooms and run your own programme.

We offer meeting and conference room hire for groups of up to 300 delegates depending on which centre you choose. We can offer cold buffet lunches or hot food and teas, coffees and cold beverages throughout the day.

Youth Programmes

We’ve been helping partners such as the Prince’s Trust, NCS (National Citizen Service) and Duke of Edinburgh Award transform young lives by providing the life changing adventure trips as part of their unique programmes.

These weeks kick start a wave of amazing challenges and set the bar for the rest of the experience.  In the fun activity residential phase young people will meet new friends and take on new adventure challenges. They will overcome fears, learn to rely on each other and learn skills that will not only get them through the programme, but will carry on in the future.

“We see a high level of investment from Rock UK staff to NCS. Their instructors are energetic, lively and really relate to our young people. Rock UK tailors a programme of activities perfectly to accommodate our needs.”

Sports groups

We’ve got great facilities for sports groups, whether you’re a team looking to hire a sports pitch, a football coach looking for space to train the troops or a fitness instructor wanting to hire a room for your classes.  We have four adventure centres across the UK with wide open fields and sports pitches, sports halls and rooms available for hire.

Whatever your focus, leadership skills, fitness training, communication or teamwork, we can offer a tailored programme designed to meet the needs of your group. We offer residential packages that are great for sports clubs and help you bring the team together for valuable team bonding or you can just hire the facilities and run your own programme throughout your stay.
