Challenging Adventure are a British owned and run company that
specialise in outdoor learning adventures in the UAE & overseas.
The Mountain Centre is just 15 minutes from RAK city centre, but is in
the heart of the mountains and built on a natural hot-spring. It’s a
green and lush, tranquil oasis in a private wadi and is perfectly situated
as a base to run our amazing outdoor adventures.
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 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 all police
screened and 1st aid trained.
The camp is secured with a 2-metre-high fence, lockable gates and
CCTV with a duty instructor on-site at all times. All activities are fully
risk-assessed and each instructor also does 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.
All the food we serve at camp is home-made by our in-house chefs
who provide wholesome, nutritious halal dishes that change daily.
We always offer 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.

Accommodation will be in large villa-style tents that sleep up to 6 students.
Each child with have their own hotel style mattress which comes with a
fitted sheet and children will just need to bring their own sleeping bag and
small pillow. Girls and boys tents are separate as standard and teachers
sleep in their own tents close by. We have hot showers and toilets within
each camping area, again separate as standard for boys and girls.
Each full day will start with breakfast at around 7.30am. The first activities
will start at 9am and finish at 12pm for lunch. At 1pm, the activities will
start again and finish by 4pm where there is some downtime before using
the hot-spring pools at 5pm. Dinner is usually at 6pm and there will be a
planned activity or campfire until around 9pm.
