A whole range of top adventure experiences will be up for grabs at this year’s Apex Overnight Challenge.
In a change from previous years, teams will be competing for exclusive ‘experience prizes’ rather than physical items such as outdoor equipment. There’ll be prizes for the top three teams in both the Explorer and Network categories.
The Apex team are still working to secure more deals, but already the prize range is looking extensive with some amazing experiences on offer.
A day of Extreme Caving – Your team will take on an unforgettable day of extreme caving in one of the Peak District’s most impressive and inaccessible caverns. A team of highly skilled instructors will help you abseil through waterfalls, grovel into forgotten chambers and climb past millions of years of history for a day you won’t ever forget. Provided in Association with Derbyshire Scouts Caving Team.
A weekend canal boat adventure – Take your Explorer Unit for a unique weekend away on the water. You’ll have exclusive use of a refurbished narrowboat to explore the waterways of West Yorkshire. Provided in association with Jubilee Venture.
High Ropes adventure – Swing from the trees at any one of Go Ape’s 26 courses across the UK. Your team will have an action-packed session, taking on the traverse lines, zip wires and impressive scramble nets, high in the canopy. Provided in association with Go Ape.
A weekend in the Peak District – Have a free weekend at one of the Peak District’s most impressive camp sites. Up to twelve people from your unit can camp free of charge at the home of last year’s Apex Extreme event. Provided in association with Gradbach Scout Camp.
Extreme Abseil Challenge – Dare you tackle the ultimate abseil? One lucky team will win the chance to abseil off one of Derbyshire’s most dramatic railway viaducts. You’ll be sent over the edge with expert instruction, before your abseil over the fast-flowing river below. Provided in association with Apex Challenge.
