Dick Turpin the Greatest 'Highwayman' – Rifle Shooting

We love this activity, time on a rifle shooting range you will be taught how to aim, hold steady and the to gently release the trigger.  Points are awarded for how well you hit the target.  

The management were watching one unit do this at a previous Revolution and one lady did not hit her target unfortunately, bless her but strangely her friend shooting on the target next to her did very well and actually managed to hit her target with more holes than she had shot - go figure that out!  Should have gone to Spec-savers we think!
David Grohl The Greaest Drummer - Drum Workshop

From the early civilians having a unique Drum rhythm has frightened many a warrior.  Master the skill in this unique workshop where you will be taught how to collectively work together to make beautiful music, hmm scrub that you will be taught how to make a complete racket that sounds ear-shattering.  

Ear plugs are not essential but headache tablets might help!  Be like a superstar Rockstar!
Tribal Indians - Headhunters  

This has to be one of the Revolution favourites and has featured as many times on the Revolution activity list.

Similar to LazerQuest or Paintball, head-hunters is a two sided team game based in a beautiful woodland setting.  Each team has a base to protect and a Flag to capture the only obstacle in your way is your enemy!

What will your tactics be? stealth like creeping up to the enemy base, tactical surrounding the base with a wide net or a brazen charge at the enemy picking them off.  Whatever the tactic the fresh air, birds singing make this a fun filled event.
Superhuman Durability – Keep Fit 

This is the cruel side of the management team, all camp are invited to an early morning fitness class on-site on Sunday morning.  For the fitness fanatics this is very welcomed, for those that need to blow a few cobwebs out then this is also a great time to re-energise.  Suitable for all fitness levels join this fun session.
FRIDAY: “Vegas Night “

Friday night is Vegas Night baby, a night for lavish fancy dress. Do you go as Elvis, will others go as Elvis who knows it's a gamble (again a reminder about our no actual lion rule)

Entertainment: To be confirmed 
SATURDAY: Saturday Night Live

Saturday night is Saturday Night Live (see what we did there, a Saturday night theme on Saturday night. You won't get that creative thinking at TPC) From the modern reality shows to the old school days of variety shows there is plenty to do for fancy dress here

Entertainment: To be confirmed
SUNDAY: “Magic!"

Sunday night will be a kind of magic. A night of magic and illusion (or is it) yes it is (but is it) yes it definitely is. It will also be a night of neon. Magic and neon, two things that go together as well as things listed in alphabetical order.

Entertainment: To be confirmed

Daytime Events
Dick Fosbury the Greatest 'Flop' – Ultimate Frisbee

'Ultimate' Originally known as Ultimate Frisbee this is a non-contact (oh Yes it is!) team sport played with a flying disc (Frisbee).  According to Wikipedia this game was originally developed in 1968 by a group of Students in New Jersey, however the Revolution Management team believe this was really invented by scouts on a scout camp throwing their dinner plates to each other you will be competing against another team in this exciting game.  Just keep your eye on the game or be ready to duck very quickly!

OK, you have us.  Dick Fosbury invented the Fosbury Flop which won him gold in the 1968 Olympics for high-jumping, we could not find a famous Frisbee player and Fosbury and Frisbee sound similar, so there you go - management logic applied!!!!
Billy Elliot the Greatest 'Dancer' – Dancing Lessons

Some have said that the management team are 'awesome' on the dancefloor (which you will be able to witness yourself), or was that 'awful',  either way during this session you will be taught with your friends a dance routine, artistic licence is always allowed and encouraged.  We are sure there will be a dance off during the session and we tend to find the skills learnt during this session always find their way to the evening Entertainment Zone with everyone showing off their new dancing talents!
Robin Hood The Greatest 'Archer' – Archery

Who had an idea to tie some string at either end of a stick and to use another stick to fling, surely this was once again another activity invented by a Cub? During this session you will get your hands on said stick with some arrows and compete against your fellow friends to see who can get the highest score or even hit the bullseye.  Extra points for splitting an arrow!

Did you know...

Archery is the sport, practice or skill of using a bow to propel arrows. The word comes from the Latin arcus. Historically, archery has been used for hunting and combat. In modern times, it is mainly a competitive sport and recreational activity. A person who participates in archery is typically called an archer or a bowman, and a person who is fond of or an expert at archery is sometimes called a toxophilite

​Esther Williams the Greatest – Synchronised Swimming

This amazing and unusual activity was introduced at Revolution for the first time a few years back and people have been talking about it ever since!  Synchronized swimming is a hybrid form of swimming, dace and gymnastics, so it's the perfect to show off your Greatness.  You will be split into teams and asked to choreograph your own routine elaborating moves in the water, accompanied by music.  Who will be crowned the Greatest Team!

BONUS: It is also a well loved activity as this activity is a chance to wash away all the dirt and cobwebs that has accumulated over the past few days!
Even more activities for you to enjoy!
