3. Caving

Indoor Activity

Available at: BHDCMNOS

We have specially designed indoor caving systems at all of our centres. They are constructed for realism and adventure, but also to introduce the activity at a level that is just right for the 7 to 11 year old age group. The tunnel system has emergency exits at frequent intervals. The children all wear caving helmets with a caving torch at the front, to guide them through the tunnel network. As with many of our activities the instructors use lots of creativity to capture the imagination of the group, with cave exploration and rescue themes included for the later part of caving sessions.

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.

"Alien Conspiracy - This was an excellent activity and it really built on our children's orienteering skills. Bouldering - Excellent. This was our first activity and it really got the children excited and it challenged them. Caving - This was something different and really explored the concept of teamwork. Climbing - We did this activity twice and the second time the children really challenged themselves. Crate Challenge - The children really enjoyed this activity as it focused on working together as a team. Dungeon - The mathematical aspects of this challenge was brilliant. The problem solving approach really promoted teamwork. Night Line - Our children really found this activity interesting as they had to listen to the instructions. It was very entertaining. Piranha Pool - This was the best activity. The children were already hyped for the activity and really believed that there were piranha's. They were all soaking wet but they had a brilliant time. Team Challenge - Children enjoyed working as a team. Trapeze - All of our children challenged themselves to try and get to the top. Many of them managed to jump off and catch the trapeze."
