Indoor Activity

Available at: BHDCOS

We have purpose built indoor climbing walls at each activity centres, creating the safest possible environment for young people to be introduced to climbing. These sessions offer children a chance to challenge themselves on an individual level and to support each other as part of a team. Children have two safety ropes attached when they are climbing, doubling the safety provision. One rope is attached to an auto-belay and the other goes through a belay system operated by children, teacher(s) and the group leaders. As well as belaying, the children waiting for their turn to climb are kept busy providing encouragement to fellow climbers. We have extra challenges for those who choose to push themselves that bit further, as well as exciting climbing games to suit all levels of confidence and ability. Our instructors are skilled not only in the technical aspects of climbing, but also as motivators and confidence builders so that they can ensure every child leaves this session feeling proud of what they have achieved.

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.

"Brochure and initial information - Very useful for getting children excited and prepared and for sharing with parents. Children safe at all times and learnt lots about personal safety and self-management. Food - Really enjoyed by all children and all dietary requirements were met without question. Activities: Piranha Pool - A big favourite amongst the children - they loved it! Quest - This really brought out the best in team work skills! Raft Building - Very enjoyable and the children were incredibly engaged and never stopped smiling! Team Challenge - Great fun for everyone. Next year the teachers are determined to win! Trapeze - A terrifying prospect for many children (and adults) but one which every single pupil achieved and conquered in their own way. Zip Wire - Such fun, and really enjoyed having a competition against the other side of the tower! Caving - Another activity which challenged many children's fears but, as ever, the staff encouraged them brilliantly and everyone took part. Climbing - Children really enjoyed the bouldering games. Crate Challenge - Great for building team work and the children worked together really well. They thoroughly enjoyed this activity. Dungeon of Doom - Many of the children found this scary - they really believed the legend - but really enjoyed it by the end. Giant Swing - Fantastic fun - always a big favourite! Canoeing - All of the children took part in this so it was a great, inclusive activity. Because of the thunder and lightening, we did the activity at night and it was terrific fun! Archery - Another very inclusive activity - brill! Night Line - Children loved this and really communicated well."
