Exelement Plans An Action-Packed Summer For Kids

Exelement has a wide range of activities planned for children this summer. The company provides vouchers for a host of extreme sport activities, from abseiling to zorbing, with skydiving and jet skiing thrown in for good measure. Summer plans also include wakeboarding, archery lessons, high-ropes courses and mountain boarding, among others.

While skateboarding never grows old, why not try a more extreme version? Let your kids try mountain boarding. Introductory courses take participants through a safety briefing and then kit them out with everything, including the board, helmet and pads. Skills are practised on the junior slope, and before long they’ll be perfecting their toe turns, heel turns and learning how to carve down the hill. Those on the lookout for adventure can also choose the aerial high-ropes course. It’s a trip through trees incorporating more than 28 different elements and ending at the revolutionary new Powerfan for those bold enough to take ‘the plunge’. Adventurers are fitted with a full-body harness and helmet and then attached to a revolutionary safety system that permits progression from obstacle to obstacle without the need to detach from the safety line at any time.

There is a whole range of water sports as well. If your children love the water, give them a break from a regular dip in the pool – instead, sign up for scuba diving lessons. You can also choose a two-hour kayaking paddle ride on Beaulieu River, where qualified instructors teach children the basics of kayaking as they weave through the river and its creeks. Other options include jet skiing and wake boarding.

Paintball wars are especially popular, as is the ‘dad and lads’ programme. Children are accompanied by their fathers as they get to ride in a real tank and fire paintballs through the 40mm cannon. If children are about to start learning to drive, there’s a junior rally to take advantage of, or junior luxury car driving (think Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin). And, these are just the options on land. In addition, there are scuba diving lessons, introduction to kayaking, indoor skiing, indoor skydiving and snowboarding, and zorbing options. Vouchers for these activities make excellent birthday and Christmas gift ideas. For now, though, summer is the best time for adventures, so why not sign up to make sure your kids make the most of it.
