Save up to 60% off the Last of the Summer Camps with PGL

The week starting Saturday 25 August (or Monday 27 August for short breaks) marks the last week of 2018 summer camps for unaccompanied children. PGL has slashed remaining places by up to 60% off brochure prices, for both multi-activity breaks and week-long themed holidays, at centres across the UK.

For example, at Boreatton Park, PGL’s long-established adventure centre that covers 240 acres on the Welsh borders, a seven-night multi-activity holiday that originally cost £609 is now £243.60, saving 60%. The deal is across all PGL age groups, that is seven to ten year olds, 10-13s and 13-16s.

At Winmarleigh Hall in Lancashire, there are discounted places for seven to ten year olds and the teenage group on the seven-night holiday the same week, with the original brochure price of £589 reduced by 60% to just £235.60.

Shorter breaks of four nights are also offered at some centres, with a short break at LIddington in Wiltshire starting Bank Holiday Monday 27 August now only £210, reduced by 60% from £525.

Selected themed holidays are also discounted, such as a seven-night Motorsports holiday at Osmington Bay in Dorset for 13-16 year olds, which was £699 but is now reduced by 40% to £419.40.  Another example is PGL’s Cook’s Academy, which offers 10-13 year olds an introduction to cooking. This is now reduced to £489.30, saving 30%.  All themed holidays spend half the week focussing on the ‘specialism’ and the other half on adventures taken from the centre’s multi-activity timetable.

All summer camps include accommodation, meals, activities, instruction, equipment, evening entertainment and caring supervision. PGL’s special activity holiday insurance must be booked to take advantage of this offer (£37 per child on a seven-night holiday).

Bank Holiday Weekend: PGL Family Adventures from £89pp

August Bank Holiday weekend is the last chance this summer to enjoy a PGL Family Adventure, with final reductions saving up to £400 for a family of two adults and two children aged five to 18 years!

Two-night multi-activity breaks starting Saturday 25 August are offered at seven PGL centres across the UK.

Prices now start at just £89 per person for a weekend that runs from Saturday afternoon to Monday afternoon.

For example, at Bawdsey Manor on the Suffolk Heritage Coast, everyone now pays just £89 each, whether adult or child and regardless of room type. Brochure prices for families booking a separate room for the parents, with children in an adjacent room were £199 per adult and £179 per child, which means a family of four now saves a total of £400!

The weekend includes all meals from Saturday dinner to Monday lunch, family-friendly evening entertainment and six activity sessions to enjoy (Sunday all day, and Monday morning).

Activities vary from centre to centre but may include archery, aeroball, ropes course challenges, climbing and fencing. All equipment and instruction is included, with children as young as five being able to participate.

£89 is the new price for Bank Holiday weekends at Bawdsey Manor, at Barton Hall in Devon, Liddington in Wiltshire, Osmington Bay in Dorset, Little Canada on the Isle of Wight and Barton Hall in Devon.

Prices at Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire and Boreatton Park in Shropshire start at £109 per person.

UK Family Adventures: FREE PLACES for parents OR kids at PGL

Summer holidays at selected PGL Family Adventure dates are now discounted, with free places for children OR for parents, depending on the location and holiday date. For example, a family of four can save up to £1058 on a fully-inclusive week in Devon.

The first offer is amazing! For each full-paying child aged five to 18 years at the brochure price of £449, up to TWO parents are now completely free, saving £529 per adult, or £1058 for a family of two children accompanied by two (free) parents.

That’s for a seven-night holiday at Barton Hall near Torquay where the 46 acres have superb facilities from an outdoor heated pool to giant swings, a lake and a zip wire. There’s even a dry ski slope next door for optional ski sessions (small supplement) and flexibility in the centre’s activity programme to repeat a favourite activity, or simply take time out to enjoy the pool, or a cream tea.

Discounted weeks at Barton Hall start Saturdays 4, 11 and 25 August. The price includes all meals, activities and equipment as well as evening fun, and is based on parents having their own simple but ensuite room with the children in an adjacent room.

With this amazing deal, a family with three children would ‘earn’ themselves SIX free adult places! That makes this a stupendous offer for extended families looking to holiday together. Quote LR18X when booking this deal.

The second offer is that for each full-paying adult at the brochure price of £489, up to TWO children aged five to 18 years are now completely free, saving £409 per child, or £818 for a family of two adults and two children. A family of two adults and three children would still only pay £818, as would a family of two adults with four (free) kids!

This deal is offered at Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire where more than 20 different activities may feature in a week’s holiday. It is based on a family of four sharing a simple but ensuite room for seven nights starting 11, 18 or 25 August. Quote LR28X when booking this deal.

Other final offers on UK family adventures include free child places on four-night breaks in Devon, Lincolnshire, Shropshire, Wiltshire and Dorset, and two-night activity weekends from just £99 per person regardless of age.

All Family Adventure offers must be booked by 17 August.

Huge Savings on Confidence-building PGL Summer Camps

PGL welcomes thousands of unaccompanied children to its summer camps each year, and a new offer saving up to 60% seeks to encourage a new generation of children to try PGL for the first time.

A PGL holiday is a fun and safe way for children to wave goodbye to mum and dad, to try new activities and make new friends. Kids return tired and happy, eager to talk about their achievements and full of confidence.

These ‘First Timer’ holidays are just that: holidays exclusively for children who have not experienced PGL ‘unaccompanied’ before. (Children who have been on a school trip are still eligible for the offer.)

The offer is on seven-night residential holidays on selected dates this summer at adventure centres in Surrey, Sussex, Wiltshire, the Isle of Wight, Devon, Dorset, Herefordshire, Shropshire and Lincolnshire.

Each centre is owned and run year-round by PGL, with trained staff taking care of everything from dawn to dusk – and beyond. Single-sex accommodation, all meals, activities every day, equipment, instruction and supervision are all included in holiday prices.

Examples of discounted First-timer holidays include:

Date                Location                                              Age Group       Was     Now                Saving

4 August          Liddington in Wiltshire                       7-10                 £639    £225.60           60%

11 August        Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire         10-13               £609    £243.60           60%

18 August        Little Canada, Isle of Wight                 10-13               £589    £235.60           60%

18 August        Boreatton Park, Shropshire                7-10                 £609    £243.60           60%

25 August        Windmill Hill in Sussex                        10-13               £599    £239.60           60%


All holidays include accommodation, meals, activities, instruction, equipment, evening entertainment and caring supervision. PGL’s special activity holiday insurance must be booked to take advantage of this offer (£37 per child). Quote FIN58X when booking.
