I have been lucky to have visited Calshot twice. Firstly in 1971 for a Geography 5 day field trip and secondly in 1972 for an activities week. Each occasion was fantastic and the fond memories have stayed with me since. I am glad to read from current reviews that the centre is still a huge success.

Hi, im Ben and i recently did an activity week with calshot. I was in the 13-16 group and there were so many fun activities to do and i met loads of new people. I thought the velodrome was awesome and having an outdoor climbing day at swanage was brilliant. Our instructor Dan was awesome and we had alot of fun. Thanks for a great time and i think i speak for the whole group by saying it was amazing fun, our instructors were brilliant and you have great facilities. Maybe you could do an extended course over 7days instead of 5? And 1 thing to improve: the food :) it wasnt bad though and everything else surpassed my expectations!

I came to Calshot with Air Cadets for the competiton, and it was genuinely the best weekend I've had! Our instructor was really friendly and encouraging and all the activities we did were so much fun, but I especially enjoyed the track cycling and I might be looking in to getting some lessons because I enjoyed it so much. Thank you for everything!

I thought that all the Staff were very nice. They teached very well and had good relationships with each other and the people doing the courses.

Calshot Activity Centre is amazing. one day you do sailing in the cold sea. Then you do snowboarding and archery, i had an amazing time and will come back

I came to calshot with a group of scouts last week and has a fabulous day, the weather being stunning helped our enjoyment, even if it meant we had to paddle rather than sail, but the kayaking was the best fun. The three guys who looked after our group were fabulous, Dan, in particular was very enthusiastic and encouraging and enhanced my enjoyment of the day no end! Many thanks Calshot for a great time

Calshot is an amazing adventure for adults and children! Terry (one of the activity leaders) is an absolutely amazing influence! he is always there and helps you and never rushes you to do things! There are many activities to do such as: skiing, windsurfing,abseiling, rock climbing,track cycling and many more. All of the sports are either in the sea,river or one of the three hangars. The track cycle velodrome is only one of 4 in the country with the highest level at a 45 degree angle! harder than the Olympic Velodrome, but once your on it you find it as easy as pie! The Calshot Velodrome is used by Olympic atheletes! the food is delicious thanks to the very helpful dinner staf who give you 3 meals a day! also the accomodation is lovely with either a river view or a sea view! I totally recommend Calshot to anyone wanting to come! Terry you were great, thankyou!

Wednesday night freestyle is fantastic for all levels of freestyle snowboarding, such good fun with a really friendly atmosphere. As a regular rider there have been some real improvements lately and slope supervisor Terry is super enthusiastic and is a great asset to the slope.
