Most of our activity sessions take place with one activity group and their group leader at a time, but for team challenge we get a number of activity groups together one evening for various inter-group challenges. This is an opportunity for the whole school group to share experiences. Teachers, children, group leaders and course leaders spend time together, taking part in stimulating and fun challenges. We have a lot of different options for team challenge activities and in order that we can run a team challenge that is right for each school, we invite teachers to choose activities and have some input on the way team challenge operates, before the session starts. Although scheduled as an indoor session schools sometimes choose to do part of team challenge outdoors.
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.

Caving - All leaders were great at talking about some of the science behind rocks and how caves are formed etc.
Crate Challenge - Great opportunity to develop teamwork and communication skills.
Night Line - It's really interesting for the children to see how they adapt when one sense is taken away and how they reflect on it at the end is great.
Piranha Pool - A favourite activity of the children which really challenges them to have a go and also use team work and communication.
Trapeze - A good one for children to push past their comfort zones and challenge themselves."
