Welcome

We have wonderful opportunities for children to achieve fantastic things. Our 3 day, 2 night residential course for the 7 – 11 year old age groups typically packs in 15 activities providing the right balance by offering activities that will challenge, develop teamwork and stimulate the imagination. We have had many requests for a shorter course suitable for younger groups and as a result have introduced a new two day residential at The Old School in 2013 exclusively for three and four groups. This new one night course offers six-taster sessions suitable for complete; these activities are designed to provide a safe introduction to adventure and teamwork activities.

We are frequently told that one of the best things for teachers at Robinwood is seeing the children learning and working together in a different environment. This will often result in a few surprises, with some children who are quieter in the classroom succeeding well beyond what had been expected.

Everything we do at Robinwood is designed to make a really positive difference in the development of each child that attends. It’s why we all go to work at Robinwood and why we are passionate about it.

Robinwood Quote of the Week!

"Another successful visit to Robinwood. Again your centre excelled in all areas, even coping with our drowned rats after our monsoon soaked walk in. Thank you for your extra care and attention with our disabled child. Taking away a child with disability is always a worry for both parents and staff yet the pre-visit and the provision of an amazing all round wheelchair made the child feel more confident and able to tackle the challenges of being away from home. The staff around the centre always appear to have a smile on their face. They obviously enjoy their work and this enthusiasm is passed onto the children. They even make the children feel that putting a harness on them is a pleasure ! A great big thank you to the team of leaders who worked with our children. Every year they manage to get the best out of our children. They make the activities fun and the challenges achieveable. The fact that our children never want to go home says it all."

Activities at Robinwood

We have 15 high quality activity sessions. Although most are offered at all Robinwood centres, there are some which only operate at selected centres. All centres run a very similar, busy programme with typically 15 activities packed in to the three days at Robinwood. There are slight variations in activities offered at each centre and the activity programme also varies according to the time of year.

"The whole experience from start to finish was great. This was the first visit of this kind for our school and the feedback from students and parents has been overwhelmingly positive. The leaders were particularly great. Very supportive of the children (and staff !) and really knew how to talk to children in a way that was clear, firm and encouraging. We already have a load of excitied Y3/4 children. Many thanks to all."
