Outdoor Activity

Available at: BHDC

Canoeing takes place on very sheltered shallow water, with the children close to the bank at all times. The Canadian canoes used are very stable and accommodate up to 3 children in each canoe. A suitably qualified group leader will take charge of the group, assisting with individual coaching tips throughout. In the second half of the session we normally run canoe games, which enable children to practice their skills whilst also having great fun. Buoyancy aids, canoe helmets and other clothing appropriate to weather conditions are worn throughout.

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.

"Everyone had an amazing time ! Children were so well looked after - staff got to know the children very quickly and were very skilled in pushing and challenging them in a supportive manner. All staff were very friendly. One child who has cerebal palsy was very well supported and he participated in everything. Certificates were lovely - nicely personalised ! A fantastic place - we are looking forward to next year ! Booking procedure - Everything is so well organised - it makes our job so much easier ! Website great to find documents needed. 10/10 for all activities ! All very accessible for one of our children with cerebal palsy. Staff were excellent at providing appropriate support and challenge. Lots of 'accessible' features were really useful eg. Steps out of the lake/piranha pool etc. 'Accessible' aids for Archery, Climbing etc."
