Cornwall’s answer to the Highland Games with surf inspired challenges
Minimum class size 10, all equipment provided
Key Stages 1-4
Qualified, experienced, industry leading instructors experienced with all ages
Beach and ocean based team building games, challenges and problem solving. The Cornish Challenge is Newquay Activity Centre’s answer to the Highland Games – the ultimate team-building tournament! Combining ‘It’s A Knockout’ style races with epic California beach games, we’ve designed this unique challenge to put problem-solving, surf and lifeguarding skills to the test on the best surf beaches in Cornwall.
Team-building fun and exhilarating competition
It’s a session crammed full of fun, but remember: only one team can win!
Teams must work together in the water and on land with paddle relay races and Lifeguard challenges. They will test their might and metal with the tug’o’war, before harnessing their collective brainpower for some serious surfing problem solving. You might be a pro with a volleyball, but will you beat the dizzy stick?
The Cornish Challenge is open to non-swimmers and designed to suit all group ages and abilities.
