Indoor Activity

Available at: BHDCOS

The group need to escape together from the Dungeon of Doom; a place full of cobwebs,spooky noises, skeletons and other horrors. They can only do this through excellent teamwork, with some problems to be solved in small groups and other challenges to be overcome with the whole group working together. Tunnels connect some of the dungeon areas. Typical problems include a sensored dungeon floor with only one safe route through, a cube cage with images of instructors trapped inside and a large tilt maze which needs total teamwork to solve. The stories group leaders tell to introduce the challenges to come help generate extra excitement and wonder, but whilst capturing the imagination, they remain conscious of the importance of not making it too frightening, particularly for the younger groups.

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.

"Once again, we've had an excellent visit to Robinwood - probably our best visit yet. The centre is very well organised and the course and group leaders were both exceptional in how they dealt with the children and how they ran the activities. Even after five years of visiting, I cannot wait to visit again next year with a new class. Thank you for a brilliant residential! Head Office staff - Always happy to answer questions and resolve any queries, also very speedy and have never been on hold. Activities: Caving - Lots of children have said this was their favourite activity this year. The new CCTV cameras in one of the caves are an excellent addition so that teachers can see what's going on without the risk of 'getting stuck'. Night Line - Especially enjoyed the cup of water challenge that children had to complete for the second half of the course. Team Challenge - Children (and staff!!!) thoroughly enjoyed the different activities. It was good to have this twice as the night activity so pupils could wind down a bit before bed. Trapeze - Always the scariest for our pupils. The group leaders did a great job of helping pupils to conquer the fear of it and encouraging to step outside their comfort zone a little bit. Zip Wire - The upgrades are FANTASTIC! We loved that this became a whole group activity as both groups were now joined by the bridge. We also like the new system in that there is no wasted time waiting for the rope to be returned. Pupils enjoyed the racing and ninja stance competition."
