Attraction Information

Debdale Outdoor Centre is a large super modern outdoor centre operated by Manchester City Council and providing an exciting range of activities ranging from high to low, wet to dry, solo to team. So whatever you're after so long as you've got energy to burn this is the place for you and yours!

Activities available include dinghy sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking, powerboating, rock climbing, abseiling, hillwalking, gorge scrambling, orienteering, camping, navigation, multi activity days and team building activities!

Once you've tried a few things with the family if you're keen on developing one as a hobby there are Youth Courses available allowing you to do so with an appropriate peer group.

The Saturday Activity Club is just a £10 a time and you can choose (in advance) from a variety of friendly instructors offering further tuition in many of the disciplines and activities available on the main menu.

For a more intensive experience you can lash out a very reasonable £150 for a full 5 day Kids' Holiday Week and experience a a combination of land and water based activities that is customised to consider the needs and abilities of the group as well as the state of the weather.

There's really no better or more supported fashion in which to try a new hobby activity, and by joining in with them and doing it as a family reinforces bonding and respect all round as well as keeping you all in shape! You can't go wrong!
