Get you lucky socks on for a night of Green Fun!
Great Activities in a splendid setting
The activities for Revolution are based all around the Isle of Wight, which provides your units the opportunity to Explore the Island as you drive around taking in the breath-taking and famous scenery. Will you make Sandcastles on one of the blue flag beaches, take a chair lift to the Needles, climb some of the downs or eat cream teas in Godshill or even walk some of the 500 miles of scenic pathways, what ever you choose dont forget to pickup a 99 ice cream with flake...
Micro Quad Racing
Micro-Quads are something completely different. The driving position is awkward, you look daft while driving one & everyone will be laughing at you! On these, a smaller version of quad bikes you will be racing head to head with plenty of power (160cc 4 stroke engines) between your thighs will definately enjoy this small yet very fun experience!
“After a morning of on-site activities, this sadly brings Revolution 2013 the historic 19th National activity camp for Explorer & Network units held on the Isle of Wight to a dramatic close.
