Mepal Outdoor Centre is a unique Activity Centre set on the clean shores of a 20 acre lake in the Cambridgeshire Fens, offering a wide range of affordable water and land based activities for families including Zorbing, Bushcraft, Fencing, Canoeing, Archery, Climbing and loads more! An ideal base for the active family looking to try out some cool new hobbies.

Out of the whole range available, archery, indoor climbing, kayaking, raft building and the high ropes have specific family sessions, though older types (teens) will also be interested in the other activities, clubs and courses. Plus Family Fundays are for over 7s and their grown-ups to have crazy tasters of different activities with all supervision, tuition and any equipment included.

Day Camps are available too during the summer and other holidays, where 7 to 14 year olds can be dropped off for a day of adventure, trying combinations of some of the activities and making new friends!

For those who've seen reference elsewhere to boat hire and a play park: please note that these features have recently been withdrawn so don't go with that in mind!
