What we offer on a school trip
Willen Lake is Milton Keynes? most popular park. Its sheltered waters and attractive parkland make it an ideal, safe location for schools and youth groups. Our friendly, experienced team can provide activities for small or large groups aged eight years upwards. Participants don?t need to be super fit or good swimmers, whatever their ability everyone can enjoy being part of the group experience - the focus is about trying new things, having fun, and learning things in a different environment to the norm.
School groups can try a number of different watersports, including:
Stand up paddleboarding
For those who would rather remain on dry land, activities include:
Team building challenges
Football (we have two 3G astroturf football pitches available to hire)
We offer full day visits (five hours between 10am and 3pm), half day visits (morning or afternoon activities), and regular progressive sessions for schools to learn a sport within their PE or Games lessons, for example. Students typically participate in two activities in a full day and one activity in a half day. The activity days/half days generally focus on trying new activities and having fun. Regular sessions enable development of skills following syllabi set by National Governing Bodies, with certificates awarded where achieved.
From June, we will also have a new state of the art Splash Park available for visitors to enjoy.
