  • Experience independence and adventure with our Overnight Breaks

    We offer the opportunity to spend a night or two away from home with friends, supported by InterAct staff and volunteers. We understand that for some young people this may be your first taste of independence away from your family so we make sure your stay is fun, exciting, safe and memorable.  

    Enjoy new challenges and great activities such as caving, climbing, canoeing, archery, as well as being with friends and making new friends, being independent and having fun ‘mucking in’, preparing meals, cleaning and day to day ‘things to do’.

    Overnight activity breaks are organised throughout the year to activity centres across Essex and other locations further afield.
