We're very close to opening again...
Here at Kepplewray we're planning to welcome groups and re-start a limited range of activities with social distancing as soon as centres are permitted to do so, we hope from July.
Measures will help ensure the health of participants with new procedures for using the centre and minibuses.
Please contact us if you or your group is planning any type of event or getaway from this summer onwards, whether for a day or longer, and we will do everything we can to accommodate.’
For further information, please check out our flyer here.
New Paddle Board Fleet...
Why not be one of the first to try out our new stand up paddle boards. These individual boards are fun, easy to control and perfect for the summer weather. We're even investing in some new wet-suits to make the activity even more enjoyable.
Welcome to Discover@Kepplewray! We create adventurous, inclusive and enriching experiences for all, regardless of ability. Our accessible and comfortable outdoor activity centre is near Coniston Water in the Lake District National Park, by the beautiful Duddon valley.
We host thousands of guests from dozens of groups every year on a residential or day basis. We tailor-make exciting and challenging outdoor activities to boost confidence and skills for everyone in your group, as well as have a lot of fun! This is what recent guests told us:
‘Amazingly accessible…Instructors were excellent, making sure everyone having fun…great variety of activities’; 'The instructors were so welcoming and person-centred, interacting with everyone in a fun and positive way’; 'We loved it! Thank you’; 'The most fun I’ve had on a trip!’; 'Brilliant as ever, our group was challenging but your staff handled it brilliantly. We love Kepplewray and can't wait for next year'.
We would love to welcome you too, so please select from the options above to find out more about what we do and how we ensure that your group will have a great stay!
Support Kepplewray During Coronavirus
Every month we welcome hundreds of young people to our Centre in the Lake District National Park to stay in the countryside and take part in some great activities, to develop themselves and learn about the world around them. We are specifically an inclusive centre and work with guests of all abilities and ages.
Due to the Coronavirus almost all of our bookings have been postponed and as a charity our income has dried up. Whilst we have taken the necessary steps to minimize our outgoings and are using the available Government support schemes we still find ourselves facing a shortfall.
Please help us address this shortfall and keep The Kepplewray Centre open to allow us to welcome more guests and help them to experience the great outdoors and enjoy outdoor activities with their peers. After all our savings we still need nearly £6,000 per month to keep Kepplewray running so that we may reopen when restrictions are relaxed and start welcoming guests.
If you are able to help financially to keep Kepplewray open, please click here to go to our GoFundMe page.
Thank You from the Kepplewray Team
Covid 19 (Coronavirus) Update
We very much regret following restrictions on non-essential travel and work, and new rules on social distancing announced by HM Government that The Kepplewray Centre is now closed temporarily and until further notice. We will contact all groups expected over the affected period starting with April and May bookings in order to see how we may best serve you. Read More
