The great caravan challenge

28/02/2014

In 2013 Tim and Kerry Meek challenged their two daughters, Amy (10) and Ella (8), to stop watching television and complete 100 outdoor tasks in a year.

Activities such as kayaking, finding a waterfall, red squirrel spotting, foraging for a meal and spending a night in a hammock were on the list. By October the girls had completed all 100 challenges and only watched a maximum of three hours of TV a week.

The Xplore Challenge 2014 with the Meek family

After reading about the Meeks, The Caravan Club has teamed up with Co Durham-based leisure vehicle manufacturer Elddis to set the family another challenge for 2014 to undertake 20 caravan holidays.

To succeed in their task, the Meeks must visit Caravan Club sites in England, Wales and Scotland - and complete a number of outdoor activities along the way. Follow the Meeks' adventures in future issues of The Club magazine, on The Club website and on Club Together, our popular online forum and why not create your own family challenges?
