Indoor Activity

Available at: BHCLDCOS

This session involves different ‘crystal maze’ type challenges, going back and forth across our ‘piranha pool’, without falling in. We introduced this themed problem solving session over the first couple of years that Robinwood operated and it has developed over the years since then to become, for many schools, the most talked about and eagerly anticipated session at Robinwood.
To achieve success the group must demonstrate skills in planning, communicating, evaluating and problem solving. We also ensure that the “piranhas”(?!) are unable to cause any injury should a child (or teacher) briefly join them in their pool.

Other 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.

We really appreciate all the recommendations we get from schools who have visited Robinwood and the number of schools who come for the first time as a result of recommendations from friends and colleagues. We are constantly updating the comments from schools who have recently attended a Robinwood Course. The schools that attend come from areas of the Midlands, throughout the North of England and up into Scotland. But don’t just take our word for it, See what they have to say about robinwood.

"The PSHE aspects of a Robinwood trip are often things that get 'passed over' in busy school curriculum nowadays. Faultless from start to finish this year in accommodating our needs for a child with Autism. Massive credit to you. We contemplated kidknapping your catering staff to bring back to our school... Amazing! Activities: Trapeze - Great as always - very challenging for some of our children, so very rewarding. Team Challenge - Excellent fun - a great way to have fun and wind down at the end of a long day. Night Line - Like the new goggles. Great educational/sporting benefit to the communication. Crate Challenge - This is one of the more underrated Robinwood activities. Perhaps not as 'white-knuckle' as some of the other bits, but the task requires great teamwork. Caving - Excellent fun - one of the children's clear favourites. The upgrades to the TV room with the monitors are superb. More tech is always a benefit! Archery - Great session - very enjoyable for all. It's a good equaliser of skills. Zip Wire - Love the new cameras. Children talk about this one a lot on the way home. High adrenaline!"
