As 'The Adventure Charity' our aim is to provide young people with the opportunity to participate in outdoor and sporting activities - and we have the perfect place at our stunning harbourside location in the centre of Poole.

As a non-profit organisation, we are able to offer alternative PE lessons at half the price of other local providers.

Safety is paramount - all our instructors are fully qualified, DBS checked and ensure all activities are thoroughly risk assessed.

We also offer an exciting range of well maintained equipment and all the support you need.

All protective equipment and kit will be provided.

Students will need to bring swimwear, shoes that can get wet and a towel for water activities.

Harbour Challenge is easy to find - we are in the centre of Hamworthy Park in Poole. You can leave your car at Hamworthy Park Surface Car Park and take a short walk to the Centre. Please note that this is now a pay and display carpark between March to October.

Take the main path through the park, walk past the paddling pool and cafe to the cream-coloured building at the end of the park. This is the main Harbour Challenge Centre.
