Indoor Activity

Available at: BHDCMNOS

Following an introduction and demonstration from their group leader, children receive individual coaching for their first arrows, until we are confident they have the skills needed to get arrows on target. Children use bows appropriate to their size and strength and everyone taking part in archery sessions must always follow the strict rules for the archery range. We take care to ensure that, after initial coaching, a good pace to the session is maintained ensuring the children get to shoot plenty of arrows.
As the session develops, the skills learnt through expert coaching are put to use in tournaments and fun based archery challenges.
* Archery at Barhaugh Hall is not totally indoors. Although it is in a wooden building with the whole of the shooting and waiting area under shelter, it has an archery netting roof for a good length of the range.

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.

"Unbelievably well organised - it amazes me every time we visit! Like a military operation! Overall safety - Exceptional. Overall Enjoyment - Our children have talked of nothing else since they left. They loved every second. Food - Always love our food at Robinwood - the staff could not be more accommodating. The children couldn't believe they could have a full cooked breakfast! Amazing. Activities: Quest - This was amazing - I loved Dragon's Quest previously and this was even better! Ingeniously made games. Piranha Pool - Always a favourite of ours - really gets the children to focus and challenge themselves. Night Line - Children have actually been discussing today about how much this activity made them think and how much they realised they take for granted that they have full vision. This was lovely to hear them discussing. Fantastic for communication skills. Giant Swing - LOVE. The children were all excited for this prior to coming and it didn't disappoint - it never does! Dungeon - Again, like Quest, lovely to have activities that really make the children think. Gives the children opportunities to shine in different ways. Crate Challenge - Fantastic for team working and communication. I love the new addition of 'earning' the respect, communication etc crates. Caving - Our children loved caving - although some were quite nervous at first. With the support and encouragement from Robinwood staff all conquered their fears and loved it. Canoeing - Nearly all our children have commented that canoeing was the activity they found hardest, due to the fact they were relying almost completely on the rest of the group. Excellent for communication and team working skills. Archery - Safety checks fantastic. All children really enjoyed. Zip Wire - Excellent activity - the children all said they like the speed and the fact they took control of their own equipment eg unclipping/releasing black handle etc. Trapeze - Always a challenge for the children - excellent activity - I love seeing the children in my class doing this. It pushes them enormously. Team Challenge - A wonderful bonding experience for the children, full of fun."
