Outdoor Activity

Available at: BHDC

Adventure and teamwork combine on the giant swing. Two children wearing full harness go on the swing together, securely attached to the swing bar. The rest of the activity group pull on a rope which lifts the swing bar up to its starting position. The children on the swing can choose when they pull the release cord to start. It’s their choice whether they start from the highest point or release closer to the ground for a more gentle swing. However high you choose to go, the giant swing is one of our most exhilarating and popular activity sessions.

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.

"Fantastic three days away - thank you ! Very well organised and transition between activities was faultless. Leaders/instructors are very welcoming/friendly. Great opportunities for children to build self confidence in a range of activities that stretch them. All activities were excellent for promoting self confidence and team building skills. All children can achieve something at Robinwood regardless of ability. Children found it hard to pick a favourite activity. Children kept safe at all times. Food was delicious and plenty of it. Children were able to eat snacks between activities."
