Family activity holidays

If you have, or someone in your family has, a disability it can be difficult finding a holiday that meets your needs. At the QE2 Activity Centre we aim to provide a venue where disabled parents with their children or families with disabled children are able to have a holiday together.

We want the whole family to be able to take part in activities so have developed ways of delivering activity sessions to allow each person to set and meet their own challenge. Because all of our users are individuals with their own strengths and weaknesses our activities need to meet a range of abilities. Whether you are physically able or have restricted mobility there will be something for you that is challenging but achievable. Age doesn't matter either - during 2013 we had canoeists aged from six months to 93 years!

The five day break costs £750 per family. For this you will get four nights accommodation plus a full activity programme. If you don't all want to take part in activities you don't have to, its not compulsory! It may be equally valuable for family members to have the opportunity to do different things during the day and come back together later. At the QE2 Activity Centre we take a flexible approach, we want to help you to have the holiday you want.

The activities will be arranged so that families take part with other families, giving an opportunity for children with special needs and their siblings to make new friends.

family week dates for 2014

If you're looking for a holiday where everyone can join in, on equal terms contact us now to ask about availability. During these periods we will only be taking bookings from families, and we'll charge you less than usual too! The cost per cabin (that is, accommodation and activities for up to eight people)is £750.

Monday 7th April - Friday 11th April

Monday 28th July - Friday 1st August

Monday 18th August - Friday 22nd August
