Crate challenge is a high activity with the emphasis on teamwork. Four children, each wearing a harness with safety rope attached are given the challenge of building a crate tower together. For this session we use an auto-belay system which will ensure anyone falling from the tower is gently lowered to the ground at a very safe and steady pace. The children need to work as a team, climbing up the crate tower as they build it. The rest of the group offer assistance in different ways, in particular by passing crates up to those building the tower as the tower gets higher.
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.
