Haven Banks is offering free outdoor activity taster sessions as part of a Sport and Well-being Fun Day organised by Active Devon on Exeter Quay
It is 40 years since Haven Banks Outdoor Education Centre opened and one year since it moved into a new purpose built facility on Exeter’s historic canal and quayside. In that time thousands of people from across Exeter and the South West have enjoyed an outdoor activity from kayaking to caving with the centre.
To celebrate its birthday on Sunday 13 July Haven Banks is offering free outdoor activity taster sessions as part of the Sport and Well-being Fun Day organised by Active Devon on Exeter Quay.
Centre manager Ben Hedden said: “As well offering a range of great activities such as canoeing and climbing Haven Banks offers something very different – our Powerfan ‘Free fall’ Descent. You start by scaling the steps of the 22-metre Tower, which is a challenge in itself for some. However, stepping off the platform and free falling for 20 metres adds a totally different challenge and experience.”
Bookings for canoeing, kayaking, climbing wall, powerfan, bellboating and the Wheelyboat (suitable for wheelchair users) with Haven Banks will be taken on the day from 10am with the final sessions finishing at 4pm. Just turn up at the centre and book your activity. Places are limited to one person per session, all taking place on Sunday 13 July.
Haven Banks offers a range of outdoor activities for young people, families and adults.
