Activities are at the precise definitions of the Activity Classifications and Groups that your service provides and are at the bottom of the hierarchy. You can define as many as are required by your Service. For example, if your Service offers Dance as an over-arching classification (see below on Activity Classifications), this is split into Groups (i.e. Ballet, Jazz, Tap) and then into Activities: Grade I Ballet Lessons, Grade II Ballet Lessons, Grade I Ballet Exam, Grade II Ballet Exam and so on and so forth.
