Who We Are and What We Do
Dinton Activity Centre aims to give residents within Wokingham Borough and neighbouring areas the opportunity to get fit and active in the countryside. We are a adventurous activities provider - owned and operated by the council - offering both water and land based sessions. We are recognised asfully affiliated training centre with the Adventurous Activities Licensing Authority, Royal Yachting Association, British Canoeing and Ofsted.
Who are these activities for?
Teen and junior courses are suitable for people aged 6-17 and adult course are suitable for ages 16+. In an attempt to include everyone, we will make reasonable changes and adaptations to the programme of events wherever it is possible to do so. Participants are responsible for their own personal and social requirements (for example, changing). Participants can arrange to bring their own carer to assist with personal care, including behavioural and medical support, and Dinton staff may be able to act as activity support where appropriate (at an additional cost). This is at the discretion of the Centre Manager.
Important Information Regarding Participant Medications
We kindly ask that any medication left in our care is clearly listed on your consent form, along with information on what it is for and when to be administered.
Please also state clearly if medicines left at the centre must accompany the participant at all times (on land and water), or can be left at a central location within the centre. If the medication must stay with the participant at all times (on land and water), you must provide a dry pack for the medication.
