Book an outdoor adventure for your child’s birthday, (or your own!).  Come to one of our wonderful woodland sites at Shepperton or Sunninghill.  Or invite us to your venue or back garden.

We will customise a programme to suit your event perfectly and will weave activities around a theme of your choice.

Example Party themes:

Survival: Track and trail to base camp. Design and build your own shelter.  Learn to make fire without matches.  Use tools to cut down and whittle cooking sticks.  Cook something delicious over your fire as you enjoy the freedom of the great outdoors.

Survival Overnight: All of the above plus you’ll be cooking your evening meal and breakfast hot chocolate over the fire.  Sleeping out under the stars, curling up in your home made shelters or putting up your tents.  Dig your own camp toilet.  We’ll have a night game and listen out for bats and maybe have a sing or stories around the camp fire.  Overnight Prices add an extra £25 per head to normal party prices.

Mini Safari: Explore and search for creatures large and small. Make wild art pictures of animals with your friends.  Who hides where?  What do they eat?  Where do they hide throughout Winter? How many eyes do they have? Which minibeasts are super Mums and keep caring for their young? Make a little minibeast to take home from natural materials and colourful wool.

Pirates! Haul the ropes and climb the rigging.  Discover an ancient treasure map and follow the clues to find treasure me hearties! Make something wonderful from the treasure cache to take home! Toast marshmallows, sit back and enjoy your riches.

Pokemon Party: Come and train in the secret training grounds then search the woods for signs of the wild and mysterious creatures that leave trails of magic for us to make into something special to take home. Sit round a roaring fire and tell tales of the pokemon you’ve caught and tamed in your travels.

Woodland Jewellery Collect and cut natural materials to create bracelets, pendants and necklaces. Use various tools to saw, cut, hollow and carve your own beads. Mix these up with coloured beads and wool for a finished product to be proud of!

General You bring the cake and the birthday tea.  We’ll bring popcorn to pop and marshmallows to roast and everything else needed for an amazing Birthday Party in a very special place!
