Pick & Mix Adventure
Build your own outdoor activity birthday party by selecting from the activities below:
We have 2 climbing trees of different physical ability. Both are a 30 foot climbs and participants can climb as high as they want to experience the world up in the tree canopy before being lowered safely back to the ground.
The challenge is to build the highest stack of crates whilst being stood on the top. Taking it in turns to climb the crates with the rest of the group working to pass crates up and support the tower. Can you beat the Outdoor Elements record?
Leap of Faith
The ultimate challenge! A tree totem pole standing approximately 30 foot high with a platform on the top. After climbing to the top and standing up, the challenge is to take the leap and jump with the aim of touching a ball suspended some distance away. Once they have made the leap they are lowered back to the ground.
Jacob’s Ladder (age 10+)
Suspended between 2 trees we have a giant ladder approximately 40 foot tall. Three people attempt to climb as high up the ladder as possible. This is quite a physical task as the rungs are spaced further apart the higher you climb!
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.
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.
The group will be presented with the equipment to build a den, as the word is ‘a storm is on its 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.
The group are tasked to start a fire using flint and steel. Their first challenge is to keep the fire going so they need to forage for the correct natural materials. They then need to boil water to make a hot chocolate that can be enjoyed whilst toasting marshmallows.
