Challenge and Adventure logo for challenge groups

Challenge Groups

These are aimed primarily at young people aged from 12- 16 years old who are referred to us by agencies on the Isle of Wight. Many lack confidence and have low self-esteem; some have difficulties engaging with school; and some are at risk of getting into trouble with the authorities.

Alternative Friday Nights from Challenge and Adventure

Alternative Friday Night

Every Friday evening during term time we invite young people who’ve completed a Challenge Course to take part in outdoor and other positive activities with Challenge & Adventure.

Duke of Edinburgh's Award from Challenge and Adventure

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Challenge & Adventure invites all young people who complete a ‘Challenge’ course with us to remain engaged with the charity.

Those aged 14+ can choose to work towards their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award with Challenge & Adventure
