If you would like to book a Robinwood course please telephone us to check if the dates you are interested in are available and we can then reserve a place for you, with no obligation.

Your initial booking is made for the number of activity groups that you need

All parties attending Robinwood are split into ‘activity groups’ with typically an average of between 10 and 11 children in each activity group. Activity groups can vary in size between 9 and 13 children. When you make a booking, you don’t need to confirm the exact number of children that will be attending as we realise this is difficult to do a long way in advance. We just ask you to confirm the number of activity groups you would like to book for, which in turn fixes the minimum charge for your party and the maximum number of children in your party as follows:
Number of activity groups booked
Minimum number of children
Maximum number of children
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
10 20 27 40 50 60 70 80 90 100
13 26 39 52 65 78 91 104 117 130
We can accommodate groups of up to 285 children. Please contact us if you would like to discuss a larger group booking.

Reserving dates with a provisional booking

Course dates can be saved provisionally for your party, with no obligation, for up to three weeks whilst you contact parents and make any other necessary arrangements. At the end of this three week period we need to receive, a signed booking form from you, together with an initial deposit payment of £200 per activity group (around £20 per child) in order to confirm your booking. As soon as we have your booking form and initial deposit payment, your booking is secure. There are then two further payment dates:

  • A second deposit of £300 per activity group (around £30 per child) is due 8 weeks after the first deposit payment.
  • The completion payment for the whole course is due 6 weeks before the course

Flexibility in final numbers

Our system of booking for a fixed number of activity groups rather than a fixed number of children has proved popular with many schools. As long as you remain within the minimum and maximum limits stated, the actual numbers of children can vary right up until the date of the course and we will only charge for the number of children that actually attend.

Adult places free of charge

All adults attend free of charge. We recommend that there is one accompanying adult for each activity group, but are quite flexible about the total number of adults attending. If more adults would like to attend we can generally accommodate up to a maximum of 2 adults per activity group booked, but it is always best to talk this through with us first so we can explain the accommodation available. Our supervision level is such that it is also not a problem for Robinwood if you would like to bring less than 1 adult per activity group.

Commitment to minimum numbers

When you confirm a booking, you are making a firm commitment to pay for the minimum number of children, as stated on the previous page, for that number of activity groups. A booking is confirmed when a deposit payment has been made and a signed booking form has been returned.

Insurance: £5 per child

We always recommend that schools take out our travel insurance option unless the school or L.E.A. already has cover for the group, which includes the coach journey to and from Robinwood Activity Centres.
