2 Days, 1 Night, 6 Activties

Available at: OS

Since our first course in 1994 we have consulted closely with thousands of teachers who have brought groups to us. We have tailored our programme accordingly year by year and now based on feedback received are introducing a new course exclusively for year 3 and 4 groups. The course involves 6 activity sessions all based on the centre and will be an ideal first residential experience for children up to age 9. The course runs from arrival at 1.00pm to departures at 12.30pm the next day. The children will do 4 activities on the first day and two on the following morning, taking part in Archery, Caving, Climbing, Crate Challenge, Night Line and Piranha Pool with all the activities being led by their Robinwood group leader. Lunch and evening meal is provided on day one with bedtime at 9.20pm after hot chocolate and a review of the day. Breakfast and lunch are provided on day two. All our activities take place in safe secure environments that are appropriate to provide a safe introduction to adventure activities for year 3 and 4 groups.

At Robinwood we only run courses for junior schools. We don’t run any more advanced level activities, they are all suitable for complete beginners. This one night residential course is ideal for years 3 and 4 children to experience the excitement of being away from home, whilst taking part in activities that will stimulate their imagination and present fantastic learning opportunities with just the right amount of challenge for this age group preparing the way for a more adventurous 3 day course as they move up to years 5 and 6.

A progression of residential experiences at Robinwood

A number of schools who like to give their children a progression of residential experiences, through key stage two, are now booked to bring year 3 and/or 4 to The Old School for this new two day course, whilst in year 5 and/or 6 they attend a full three day Robinwood residential at one of our other centres.
