Our Outdoor Challenge course was also developed in 1991 as an extension of the Superbreak Adventure course. Each individual is challenged and stretched with the intention of utilising the activities to increase initiative, commitment, personal responsibility and self motivation. No individual is forced to do an activity. However, the skill of the Manor Adventure instructors is to encourage and entice each individual to achieve realistic goals.
