Outdoor Activity

Available at: BHCLDC

Zip wire is a real thrill activity, which is great for group support and encouragement, individual confidence and achievement. There are two zip wires from each platform, in order to reduce waiting time and maximize group involvement. Children wear a helmet and a full body safety harness, as they do for the trapeze session. They are roped on from the moment they leave the ground, with rigorous safety standards carefully enforced by our instructors throughout.

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.

"Just to say a big thank you to all the staff at Robinwood - The annual trips are a real highlight of the year for both the staff and the pupils and we can't wait to come back next year! The centre was presented impeccably and definitely feels like a 'home from home'. Overnight Supervision - The staff skillfully dealt with any issues with the children, at the same time as keeping our staff well informed. Activities: Archery - One of the children's highlights! Canoeing - It was great that all the children could be involved at the same time. Caving - Children overcame their fears and were so proud of themselves for navigating through the darkness of the caves. Challenge Course - They loved this - children were involved all the time and really worked as a team. Crate Challenge - Varied roles within the challenge allowed children to be actively involved all the time. Dungeon - Both this and the Knights' Quest were one of the teachers' highlights. Great to see the children having to engage in real life problem solving. Nightline - Great for team work and communication skills. Another activity that works so well because everyone can be actively involved at once. Piranha Pool - As usual - the infamous piranha pool did not disappoint. A highlight of the week for everyone! Team Challenge - Fantastic evening for staff and pupils alike - the children loved seeing their teachers get involved and a great bonding experience for everyone. Trapeze - Great encouragement on this activity by the course leaders meant that all the children had a go on this activity."
