3 Day Residential

Our 3 day, 2 night residential course for the 7 – 11 year old age groups typically packs in 15 exciting activities providing the right balance by offering activities that will challenge, develop teamwork and stimulate the imagination.

3 Days, 2 Nights, 15 Activties

Available at: BHDCMNOS

Three full days away from home is generally enough for most 7 to 11 year olds. Since our first course in 1994 we have consulted closely with thousands of teachers and the feedback we have received tells us that a busy three day programme works best. Children have really busy days at Robinwood with activities starting at 9.00am and finishing at 9.00pm. In a 3 day course we typically pack in 15 different activity sessions, which is more than many providers manage to include in a 5 day course.

Keeping the sessions relatively short not only allows us to fit more in but also helps to ensure that children are more focussed and engaged throughout each session than they would typically be if we spent the whole morning on one activity and the whole afternoon on another.

The right balance of activities

We are conscious of the importance of providing the right balance within the activity programme including a range of adventure activities, themed problem solving sessions, watersports sessions, activities that will challenge, activities that will develop teamwork, activities that will stimulate the imagination and activities that present fantastic learning opportunities in a way that goes beyond what can be offered in a classroom environment.

What Schools say about our 3 Day Residential

We really appreciate all the recommendations we get from schools who have visited Robinwood and the number of schools who come for the first time as a result of recommendations from friends and colleagues. We are constantly updating the comments from schools who have recently attended a Robinwood Course. The schools that attend come from areas of the Midlands, throughout the North of England and up into Scotland. But don’t just take our word for it, See what they have to say about robinwood. For more testimonials and recommendations visit our Highly Recommended Page.

"As always, our stay at Robinwood was truly amazing for both children and adults alike. We have been coming to Robinwood for years and enjoy it just as much now, if not more so, as the first year. The activities, as always, were amazing but the staff really made this a truly fantastic experience. Their patience, encouragement and support means everything to our children and their story telling and senses of humour make the three days so memorable. Again, a huge thank you to our group leaders and course leader and to all behind the scenes; we look forward to seeing you all again next year."
