Den Building & Welly Walk Party (Ages 5 - 7)

Den Building & Welly Walk Party (Ages 5 - 7)

The group will explore through the woodland making their way to base camp.  Once at base camp they will be presented with the equipment to build a den, as the word is ‘a storm is on it’s way!’

The equipment includes tarpaulin sheets, ropes and natural materials found in the woodland.  Once the den is complete everyone must rush inside whilst the storm passes overhead.  Then there is an opportunity for refreshments and for further play in and around the den. 

The return journey is an adventurous walk through our woodland stream, splashing through shallow pools, scrambling over rocks and climbing over and under fallen tree branches.

Archery Birthday Party (Age 8+)

Archery Birthday Party (Age 8+)

Archery is great fun and easy to learn. An archery birthday party with Outdoor Elements will be led by experienced instructors and their aim is to ensure lots of fun in a safe, relaxed outdoor environment.

The session will start with an introduction to the equipment, and then we'll get quickly underway with a practice round. Once the group have mastered the basic skill there will be a range of games to play, followed by a scoring round with a medal for the winner!

To finish, the group will all have the opportunity to add a birthday message to a target face that the birthday child can take away as a memento of the day.

There will be drink refreshments for both the children and adults.

Survival Skills Birthday Party (Age 8+)

Survival Skills Birthday Party (Age 8+)

This great activity session is perfect for ages 8 +.  Based in our mature woodland the group will be issued with a survival kit with all the equipment they need to make their camp for the session in the woods. The group will need to work together to put up the shelter before the storm arrives. Once the storm has passed it's time to forage for wood and get the fire started so that everyone can enjoy toasted marshmallows or bread baked on the fire; plus hot chocolate.

There will be drink refreshments for both the children and adults.

Zip Line Adventure Birthday Party (Age 8+)

Zip Line Adventure Birthday Party (Age 8+)

Our zip line will leave you buzzing with adrenalin and an experience to be remembered for a long time. A unique way to view the woodland environment.

Our zip line starts from a platform 20 feet/ 7 metres up a tree which is accessed by climbing a ladder. From there the zip line extends 300 feet/ 100 metres across a ravine through the woodland canopy to a tree at the far end. Gravity slows the rider down at the far end as the zip line ends by running uphill. The rider will then slide back to the middle of the zip line and eventually come to a stop 30 feet/ 10 metres above the woodland floor. The rider now with the help of the instructor below is lowered back to the ground on a rope system.

Whilst each participant is taking their turn on the zip line, the others can watch, take photos and also use the bouldering wall (parental supervision required).
