Challenging Adventure

Challenging Adventure are a British owned and run company that
specialise in outdoor learning adventures in the UAE & overseas.

The Marine Centre is at the heart of the RAK mangroves making it a perfect location for our water activities, within a 20 minute drive to our mountain location.

Our ethos is to make the best possible use of our natural surroundings
for activities, thereby allowing students to experience a wonderful and
different world that exists outside of the regular city environment.

Standards for safety are based on those set by the British Health &
Safety Executive and our full-time instructors all receive their training
and qualifications to UK standards, in addition they are 1st aid trained.

The camp will have a duty instructor on-site at all times. All activities are fully
risk-assessed and each instructor also completes their own dynamic
assessment for each group and activity. All technical equipment is
modern and its usage logged according to industry best practices. We
have full liability insurance and the nearest fully equipped modern
hospital is just 15 minutes drive away.


Food we serve at camp is prepared and cooked by 4* hotel chefs
who provide
wholesome, nutritious halal dishes that change daily.
Offering vegetarian/vegan options and cater to all dietary
requirements as requested on our online consent form, which asks for
important details such as dietary & medical requirements of each child.
