Adventurous Activities

The following activities have been run over the past few years, many are planned to be repeated. 

CCF Adventure Training Camps

The following optional events are arranged through the year - please contact PMF if you would like any more information. Applications for these events generally are via the Contingent Commander - TMM.

Summer Adventure Training Camp - end of Summer Term

An 8-day camp based near Keswick in the Lake District. Activities undertaken include: an ascent of Sca Fell Pike (tallest mountain in England) from Seathwaite; two half-days of mountain biking (Whinlatter and Grizedale); orienteering; Go Ape; an overnight expedition, including a 'wild camp'; ghyll scrambling; and climbing. Overnight accommodation is in tents, with a large building for all 'administration' and kit storage.

Three Peaks

The classic mountain adventure - Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon.

Radley Ridgeway Relay

A relay along the 86 miles of the Ridgeway from Ivinghoe Beacon to Avebury.  The A-team will do 36 miles in total, the B team 32, and the C team 28.  Usually done from 15.00 to 10.00 on the first night of Michaelmas weekend, every few years.  A great adventure running through the night.

50km Relay

Teams of 3-6 run 50km between them.  A great team-building and fundraising challenge.

Radley 24-hour track challenge

Like the 50km relay, but a bit further and teams of around 10 runners - last time we managed to get 212 miles.


At the purpose-built facility at Milton Keynes.  You are towed on a wire system around the large lake.

Surfing Trip

Trip to Cornwall to include: surfing, snorkelling, banana boat and maybe quad-biking.

Trail/Mountain Biking excursions

Trail biking around local area on ‘specially selected’ routes.  Time out will depend on age and ability of group, as well as weather conditions.  Tuesday/Thursday afternoons, or on CCF camps.

Climbing Excursions

Trips to Oxford Brookes climbing wall on Tuesday/Thursday afternoons.


To Oxford karting circuit to race around the track.  Driving licence not required.


An afternoon trying not to be hit by small paint pellets - that can quite hurt.  Lots of fun and a chance to use your CCF skills.

Bob Graham Round Relay

A relay attempt of the famous 24-hour solo challenge.  It took us 33 hours to complete - quite a challenge!

Future ideas…

  • Thames Path Triathlon
  • Parascending trip 
  • Guinness World Records Day
  • Ridgeway ‘End to end to end’ (Run/MTB adventure)
  • Overseas climbing trip
  • Long distance cycle adventure - maybe Thames Path route - 80 miles

Anything else you want to do?

See Mr Fernandez if there is anything else in particular that you would like to do.

NB – There will not be a bungee-jumping or parachuting trip.
