"The Sports Department at Runshaw College has used Rock & River outdoor activity centre for a number of years. The centre provides our new Extended National Diploma Sports Development students with a full packed day of team building activities and personal achievement goals. The staff are very friendly and supportive. There are a range of small group tasks that are carefully planned out. Rock and River is set in a peaceful location, but it has a buzz of excitement when we attend . I would earnestly council any school college to spend a day Rock and River".

TEAM INITIATIVE CHALLENGE
If you want to improve your communication skills, team working abilities, have specific objectives you would like to achieve, or simply want a team building day then come and try our Team Initiative Challenge. To complete the challenge, teams must navigate their way from the control room to the activity bases. Here they will face tasks, which will challenge their teamwork, communication skills, initiative and problem solving abilities. On completing each task the team must return to the control room to report their achievement, before moving on to the next challenge. Building up points throughout the day the pressure will be on to work together to complete as many challenges as possible, and compete against your peers. The Team Initiative Challenge can also be combined with any of our other activities, just give us a call and we will work with you to ensure you get the most out of your day with us.
We will tailor make your day depending on your groups' specific needs. Choose from over 15 different activities. We have a fantastic High Ropes course which offers 8 different elements including the Leap of Faith, Zip Line, Jacob's Ladder, and the Balance Beam all of which take place approx 13m (42ft) in the air. If its heights you like, these activities and the Indoor Climbing Room will suit you all the way down to the ground. For those who prefer things a bit more down to earth then there is Archery and Rifle Shooting, an extensive Orienteering Course, numerous initiative challenges and the River Line. The site also benefits from its own purpose built water sports lake offering Kayaking, Open Canoeing and Raft Building.
"We visited Rock & River in September 2010 on two consecutive days where they catered for 150 students as part of our 'Getting to Know You' induction week. It was a fabulous couple of days jam packed with team building activities - both on and off the water. All activities were led by friendly, highly skilled instructors who provided top quality service which led to a very successful induction period for our Sport and Public Service Students.
We will definitely be back next year!"
