A summary

Being Scilly is a week-long multi-activity island holiday, all about having fun doing adventurous activities in a supportive, light-hearted and empowering way.

Group activities include walking, swimming, cycling, boat trips, yoga, kayaking, snorkeling with seals, gin-making and a comedy workshop as well as guided tours around the islands and optional evening activities.

About your Mentor

Julia

I lead expeditions, camps and walks all over the UK and am passionate about empowering women to have fun in the outdoors. In my adult life, I've often been put off joining activity holidays, teams or courses because the standard of achievement was too high. I love to play hockey, but I'm not very good at it! I've longed for ages to find the 'C Team' where women can participate, try hard, get stuck in, but really not mind how well they do. Where we can have fun, completely unattached from notions of success and perfection. Where it's ok to be good enough, exactly as we are and unapologetically ourselves. This is that space. We are the 'C Team'. I love the sharing and camaraderie that comes from a group activity holiday and I can't wait to meet this year's team who are looking forward to 'Being Scilly' together.

Cancellation

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.

I am not able to offer refunds in general but may be able to if there is good notice.
