What we'll do
Come and join us for a fun filled afternoon of activities and make new friends in the unique setting of a Victorian fort. The day will run 15:00 - 19:00 and will consist of 3 activities which could include a mixture of the following climbing, archery, rifle shooting, laser tag or bushcraft. Followed by a hot meal cooked by our onsite caterers. Each young person gets to spend some healthy outdoor time with other youngsters in a new environment, where team work is encouraged and each young person can develop self-confidence and friendships in a safe, exciting and secure setting. Our instructor team is on hand all day to supervise and guide all the young participants through their time with us. It is their job to ensure the days are never dull. All our instructors are qualified in their activity fields and have experience in working and caring for children and young adults; and most significantly they are brilliant role models for the young people in their care.
About your mentors
Peter Ashley Activity Centres
Passionate about outdoor activities.
It was in 1983 that the Portsmouth Youth Activities Committee, a charity led by its Chairman, the late Peter Ashley, took Fort Purbrook on a 21 year lease from Portsmouth City Council and embarked on an extensive renovation programme to transform it into a dynamic activity centre for young people. Their work later extended to nearby Fort Widley in 1990 and the two Forts together were re-named The Peter Ashley Activity Centres in 1993. Since then, many varied activities and facilities have been provided including a residential block allowing groups to stay and enjoy all that the Centres and surrounding areas have to offer. There is no doubt that the historic environment of the Forts, with unrivalled views over Portsmouth, make for a unique setting in which to learn and enjoy new and challenging activities. Over the years, thousands of young people and members of the community of all ages and abilities have enjoyed the “experience of the Forts” and, with a new 40 year lease on the premises, the Trustees of the now Peter Ashley Activity Centres Trust aim to build on progress to date and continue to expand and upgrade the facilities in order to provide meaningful and challenging opportunities for all for years to come.
Tom Weaver
The outdoors hold a special place in Tom's heart
Coming from an active Scouting family he has gained experience in lots of outdoor activities over the years. He may not have a dog like the rest of the Senior Team, but he does love Wolves! Tom spends his spare time learning everything he can about history; of the Forts, Ancient Egypt, lost treasures- He may as well be Indiana Jones!

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

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.
