Urban Adventure Garden – Almost there!!!

November 19th, 2021|

Planning application submitted, lease almost secured, the Urban Adventure Garden in partnership with Sprowston Youth engagement project is almost coming

Get in touch

Was I really there? It was the most incredible holiday. Thank you to all the wonderful women – and Paul – for a really special time. Ascend Adventure I salute you! You provided an extraordinary experience of supporting and sharing. Great organisation and all so delightfully low key and shoe-stringy. An inspiring and restoring experience. THANK YOU. Tee shirts in hot sun in April on the West Highland Way was a gift as was dipping in Loch Lomond but frozen nights in the tent will also be remembered… Please can we do another adventure soon?

Thank you so much for having us, it’s been a very lovely day. Your both lovely people, it was really nice to talk to Paul about my family and stuff. I’m really looking forward to next time. I also think its really nice what you both do for people like us, it’s very appreciated, thank you again

“ I found that meeting other similar families and sharing stories and experiences really useful and reassuring. I appreciated time doing activities with my children without having the distractions of home stress’s and chores. Mel and Paul really made us feel able to get involved. I was dreading this {the overnight camp}, but I had a great time”

Parent, YAB Family relationship project

Thank you so much for the great experience both of you have provided. I have thoroughly enjoyed and made the most of my time here!! I have managed to embrace my feelings without over-reacting, although hard I think I had to accept them. Lying under the stars and being close to others helped me overcome my fear of being rejected and that others can create a wonderful atmosphere that can be embraced fully. I loved sleeping under the stars and felt at peace waking up with the sunrise. The Vision Quest helped me come to peace with myself and my inner anger and resentments. I have also become more enlightened, that I can be a great independent woman who can make the best of what life has to offer.

“Fun filled, action packed, great people and venue. I’d really love to have this opportunity again and maybe share it with new people. I’d love to see you again; you are really caring people”

“To be whole. To be complete. Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from.”

What’s your next adventure?
