South Cerney Outdoor Centre Open Day

South Cerney Outdoor Centre

Offering a range of fun, challenging and educational activities in an outdoor environment

South Cerney Outdoor Centre in Gloucestershire, was acquired by Prospects to fulfil our aim of combining learning with exploring the great outdoors and encouraging an active lifestyle. The venture builds on our existing partnership with Gloucestershire County Council, where we provide a wide range of support services for young people, Gloucestershire Youth Support.

Based on a highly attractive 52 acre site located in the Cotswold Water Park, the centre has its own large lake for water sports, surrounding woods and open space for landbased activities as well as onsite changing rooms, classrooms and stores. Qualified, experienced and enthusiastic instructors have access to high-quality equipment to make visitors’ time here fun, safe and challenging.

Prospects is investing heavily in improvements to the accommodation and facilities to enable more people to benefit from the centre, and to introduce an even wider range of outdoor pursuits, which already includes;

  • Canoeing
  • Sailing
  • Windsurfing
  • Power-boating
  • Paddling
  • Dragon boat racing
  • Archery
  • Orienteering
  • Raft building
  • Snorkelling 

Environmental learning and rural crafts will also be promoted so young people will acquire a better understanding of ecology, conservation and a deeper appreciation of the countryside.

The Centre caters to all requirements of youth, school and college networks, whether you are looking for short taster and day sessions, nationally accredited courses or residential activities. The centre also offers a wide range of courses for young people, families and adults, and summer and half-term activities.
