Welcome to CHALLENGE ADVENTURE GROUP, a youth group providing challenging adventures and The Duke of Edinburgh's Award for Knowle, Dorridge, Solihull and the surrounding areas.

Arrangements for this week

There are two sets of arrangements for this week due to activities and leader numbers:

  • Bigs and YL’s: will be at Olton Mere. Usual times and requirements, make sure to bring a drink and a change of clothes.
  • Smalls are in the bike ride that is doing to be leaving from the car park at Dorridge Park. (Location: Please meet at the car park at 6.45pm – not the usual 7pm. Please make sure that your bikes are roadworthy i.e. good tyres with enough air in them, two brakes (that work), two wheels that will stay on, etc etc. Each rider MUST have a helmet. If you don’t have a helmet we won’t be taking you on the ride. The ride will go out to Warwickshire and back again via a pub for a cold drink and a snack so bring some money if you want. You will certainly require a drink as it will be very warm. The ride will finish back at the park at 9pm.

That’s all, let us know if you have any questions.


We’re at Bickers tomorrow

We had a great weekend paddling – but we’re all paddled out so we’re going to be at Bickers this week, not the Mere as shown in the program.

Normal start time, 7pm.

This Week At CAG

This week the Smalls are at CAG Towers in Bickers and Bigs are on the water at Olton Mere.

We’re back tonight!!

CAG is back tonight 7 – 9pm as normal.

A lot of information will be given out, hopefully, as well as permission forms and instructions for membership payments. Please don’t make any payments until you have seen the letter and ALL participants will have a permission form given to them tonight that needs to be either checked and signed on site tonight (easier, gets it done, way faster) or it can be taken away and returned next week (sometimes gets lost, bit more hassle).

Thanks, see you later normal time!!

We’re outside tonight!

We’re outside at Bickers tonight – it hasn’t rained much recently but the field is still soft and muddy so please be aware of that.
