This session involves different ‘crystal maze’ type challenges, going back and forth across our ‘piranha pool’, without falling in. We introduced this themed problem solving session over the first couple of years that Robinwood operated and it has developed over the years since then to become, for many schools, the most talked about and eagerly anticipated session at Robinwood.
To achieve success the group must demonstrate skills in planning, communicating, evaluating and problem solving. We also ensure that the “piranhas”(?!) are unable to cause any injury should a child (or teacher) briefly join them in their pool.
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 into 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.
