25th July & 8th August

Bushcraft

With 200 acres of ancient woodland, our site has plenty of clearings to learn the ultimate bushcraft and survival skill sessions. This session will be focused on fire lighting. Shelters, fire lighting, knifework, flora and fauna, the possibilities are endless. 

Frisbee Golf

A simple, straightforward and competitive sport. Similar to golf but with specially made frisbee discs thrown towards metal baskets designed to catch it. The aim is to throw it in as few throws as possible. Games, challenges and a tournament.

26th July & 9th August

Team Games

These exciting, short games are great fun and will have everyone involved, active and laughing!

Tobogganing

Our outdoor toboggan slope is great fun all year round, whatever the weather. One of our most popular activities, children will enjoy the thrill of rushing down the slope on their own Zibob toboggan. 

27th July & 10th August

Low Ropes 

Nestled in our woodland, our natural low ropes course features a personal challenge course and several team challenges.

 

Never any more than 50cms off the ground, the low ropes course is about independence, problem-solving and co-operation as students wind their way around nets, wires, woobly planks and more!

Bushcraft

With 200 acres of ancient woodland, our site has plenty of clearings to learn the ultimate bushcraft and survival skill sessions. This session will be focused on shelter building.

Orienteering

The children will learn the fundamentals of orienteering, starting with games and exercises before heading off into the woodland to complete a linear and star course. Orienteering is great for independence, teamwork and fitness.

3rd August & 17th August

Watersports
Try canoeing, kayaking and paddleboarding at our private section of the River Yeo based at Hewish. Our friendly, qualified instructors will use fun, mini-games and challenges to build skills and learn how to paddle whilst exploring a stunning nature spot!

 

Kayaks are individual boats and you use a paddle with two blades. 

Large open canoes can be used by one, two, or three people. 

Paddleboarding takes place on large boards where you start by kneeling before standing and jumping.

4th August & 18th August

Team Challenges
Work together, communicate, plan, adapt, think and overcome!

This is the ultimate fun challenge!

Teams will complete missions set around our woodland. Every mission has been designed to put your teams communication, ingenuity, delegation, team work and decisiveness to the test.
