Strongbones Activity Weekend

Strongbones Activity Weekend

2 Night Break


Bendrigg Trust are excited to be hosting an action packed activity weekend for families with any kind of bone condition including Scoliosis, Spina bifida and Brittle Bone disease.

This break is an extension of our award winning family courses, but with a focus on bringing together people with a bone disease.

Bendrigg activity breaks are wonderful way to spend quality time together as a family whilst having tonnes of fun and meeting new people.

Our short breaks provide the opportunity to :

- Spend time together as a family and make precious memories trying a range of accessible activities such as : climbing, canoeing & zip wire.

  • - Time to socialise and meet other families.
  • - Enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings of the Lake District & Yorkshire Dales National Parks.
Our accessible accommodation has aids like ceiling mounted tracking hoists, shower beds, wet rooms and profile beds. Please let us know your requirements and additional needs when you book.

Meals are provided throughout the duration of the course from our fantastic cooks and we will cater for any dietary requirements - please make us aware of these at your earliest convenience.

What is Bendrigg Trusts experience of providing activities for people with bone conditions?
Bendrigg Trust specialises in providing outdoor activities for people of ALL abilities! We use a range of specialist equipment to ensure that everyone who would like to take part in the activities can do so safely. Our staff team have the knowledge and experience to enable everyone to experience everything they would like to during their trip.

We have welcomed groups from the lovely Strongbones Charitable Trust many times over the years and Myles Sketchley, Strongbones Project Development Officer, has written some fantastic blogs about his time here at Bendrigg which you can read here.
