PLEASE note that we will be taking small groups aside to do some whittling during both these sessions, giving children the opportunity to learn basic knife skills.

Secret Agent Training (over 5s)

30TH August 2-4pm  CLick Here To Book

There’s been some strange, unexplained happening and we need super sleuths to help solve the mystery.  Join our crack team to help us break codes, track the mysterious intruders and decipher the wild enigma.

At our woodland academy we set our trainees a series of challenges in order for them to pass their mission and complete their training.

Problem solving skills are tested through a series of clues and codes that the children must work together to decipher.

Observational skills are tested through a series of games and smaller challenges.

Physical skills are tested in our obstacle courses.

At the end of their training, when they’ve passed all their challenges, the children will receive a certificate and a badge to show that they’ve passed to the next level of their training.

Cost: £15 per child, adults free (under 2s don’t pay)


Den Building (over 5s) 24th August  2-4pm FULLY BOOKED

Come and join us for an afternoon building dens and games in the woods.  Can you build a structure just from woodland materials?  Your shelter will become your team’s headquarters for our woodland games.

Cost: £12 per child, adults free (under 2s don’t pay)

Please note

Children must be supervised at during their time at the site.

We take a Scandinavian approach to playing outdoors and believe their’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.  We play out in sunshine, rain or snow.  We only cancel our events if we believe it’s unsafe to go ahead (such as during high winds).  If you think it might rain on the day of the event we recommend full rain gear, if available.

Adults and children should come prepared to enjoy themselves and get dirty!
