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 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.

New Activity Centre for 2018

We are really excited to announce the opening of our new activity centre located near Wrexham. Cross Lanes Activity Centre will be opening in June 2018 offering the ultimate Robinwood timetable, including many great new developments.

Cross Lanes will be the first centre at which;

  • Coaches can drive on to the activity centre site
  • We will have a high ropes course
  • All dormitories will have en-suite toilets and wash basins.

It’s in a beautiful setting with all activities well-located close to the main activity centre building. For more information click here.

We have held the highest level “Investor in Customers” standard since we were first assessed in 2012.

What do our customers say about Robinwood?

"We loved the whole experience! We thought that the activities suited the year group really well and pushed them out of their comfort zones. Organisation on centre - Completely streamline! We would never have thought that there were 200 + children on site. No hiccups and other instructors came to help when running behind. Instructors never seemed stressed. Head teacher commented on how all of the safety equipment looked of a really good quality and new. No worn pieces. We could tell that safety was paramount to each instructor as it was checked multiple times in a session. Achieving agreed learning objectives - Nightline is a prime example of how this was achieved. Children working together and helping one another. Even those that usually don't or those that are quiet! Overnight Supervision - Everything was calm and night staff took care of any problems - well recorded and very useful to have copies of the night book. Great communication to lead teacher each morning of any issues. Food - Great - something for all needs as we brought children who could only have halal meat, vegetarians and lactose intolerant."

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.

"Fantastic ! All children thoroughly enjoyed it and were happy and excited throughout the duration of the visit. All children developed confidence and self esteem and all were encouraged to take part in all activities. Across all activities children were kept engaged at all times, pulling the rope to raise the Giant Swing, belaying for others, hoisting up crates etc. this really helped our children to enjoy the whole experience and made behaviour management much easier. A fantastic experience for both children and adults !"
