About our club - its history and purpose

raftingOver 50 and don't feel it? Do you want the opportunity to do all those things which you couldn't do when you were younger such as Sailing, Jet Ski-ing, Abseiling, Raft Building, Archery, White Water Rafting,  Microlighting, Caving? Then come and join us at the 50+ Adventure Club in Northamptonshire. We do all those things - and more! This picture shows some Members of the Club white water rafting, no one fell in and everyone had great fun!

Our Club was formed in 1999 with the encouragement and enthusiasm of the Sports and Recreation Officer of East Northamptonshire Council who brought together a few dozen complete strangers to become our first group of intrepid 50+ Adventurers. The Club is now run by its own committee which puts on a programme of activities that are challenging and interesting.

The Club has over 180 members all of whom have succeeded in a wide variety of activities that have amazed themselves (and their grandchildren!).Our recent activities have ranged from caving in Derbyshire, Go Ape high ropes course, indoor go karting,  white water rafting,  an activity weekend in the Lake District (with very good weather!} to more sedate local walks and fun activities such as a medieval banquet and a game of Petanque   at a local hostelry.  We are constantly finding new adventures to have - do look at our web site to see the fun we have enjoyed since the club was formed.

Not all of our activities are of a physical nature, we have a full social programme, particularly in the winter months when outdoor activities - especially those on water - are less enticing.

To quote one of our members "Since I retired, I never dreamed that I would do such things as this". Want to join us and prove to your family that you are not a "wrinklie"? There is no upper age limit - our two most senior members are aged 80!
