With action and adventure at every turn, our youth adventure activity club, Menai Dragons, is aimed at 8-17yr olds and is all about having fun outdoors, learning new skills, developing confidence and making lots of new friends along the way. 

Become a Menai Dragon and ignite a lifelong passion for outdoor adventure, the weekly sessions include participation and development in a range of activities both water based and land based, from Sailing, Windsurfing, Kayaking and Supping to Bushcraft and Climbing, to name just a few.

These sessions run every Saturday and due to demand we are also running Sunday sessions this year, with morning and afternoon sessions to choose from.

These sessions are booked in monthly slots, missed sessions are non refundable.

 

PLEASE NOTE: 

 

  • Children under 12 must arrive with a parent or adult guardian who is able to assist with changing at the start of each session. There should also be an appropriate adult available before the session finishes to help again with changing.
  • Children over 12 must arrive with and be collected by a parent or adult guardian for their first session. Afterwards, if they are able to get themselves into wetsuits and other technical clothing without assistance, they may arrive without an adult. For safe-guarding purposes, they must always be collected by an appropriate adult.
  • Parents/guardians do not have to remain on site during the session. Plas Menai should be given the contact details of a parent/guardian who will be available to attend the centre within a suitable time in case of medical, behavioural or other issues.

THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN YOU BOOK WITH PLAS MENAI NATIONAL OUTDOOR CENTRE

Plas Menai fully supports the government guidelines on the current Covid-19 situation. Following Government advice, we have everything in place to operate safely and follow these guidelines.

  • Pre book your adventure online. Booking in advance is essential. We cannot accommodate walk in bookings.
  • A booking confirmation will be sent out to your email address including all information you will need before arriving at the centre.
  • Waivers are online only; a link will be included in your email confirmation for you to complete on your own computer or phone. If we do not receive a completed waiver from you and additional participants, we cannot take you on your activity.
  • Arrive 10 mins before your adventure start time and wait in your vehicle where your instructor will meet you.
  • If you have your own wetsuits it is preferable to bring them, if not, our instructors will allocate your wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet that will have all been cleaned within manufacturer guidelines.

During this time, we have had to adapt areas of our service to ensure staff and customers are kept safe. Find out how we are reopening safely here.
