These breaks are an opportunity for families to spend quality time together, try new and exciting activities in a safe and secure environment and to meet other families in similar situations.
Upcoming Short Breaks:
EXMOOR FAMILY BREAK
Monday 21 October - Friday 25 October 2019 at the Calvert Trust Exmoor.
Please note, applications to apply for this year's break will open at the end of March 2019.
This break is for Armed Forces families with children aged 3-18 years who have an additional need or disability. Siblings are also welcome! There must be at least one parent attending alongside their children. The break takes place at Exmoor Calvert Trust in a beautiful setting overlooking a reservoir in Devon. Daily activities include:
- Horse riding
- Bush craft
- Low ropes
Families sleep in their own rooms on site; we will make sure that families are in rooms next to one another if we cannot fit the whole family in one room. Three hot meals a day are provided.
We have 50 individual spaces available and these will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
How to apply:
Please email Frances Robinson, Additional Needs and Disability Advisor, or call on 0207 463 9315, for further information and to apply for places on the Exmoor Family Break 2019.
- All children within the family must be between 3-18 years.
- Children are dependents of a current serving person or reservist.
- One child attending must have an additional need and/or disability.
