    A typical day...

    08.30 Breakfast  Children help themselves to the breakfast bar offering cereal, toast, yoghurt, juice in addition to a hot breakfast option.
    10:00-11:00 Teambuilding  Games and activities in the woods
    11:00-12:30 Scavenger hunt/Bug Shelters  An opportunity to explore the woodland, and get creative with natural materials to build animal shelters. Swimming pools, adventure playgrounds – there’s no limit to what a group of children can build for those lucky bugs!
    12:30 – 2:00 Lunch/Free time  
    2:00-4:00 Wild Survivor Bushcraft  Outdoor survival and skills-building session including shelter building, fire-lighting, water filtration and tracking. There’s nothing like toasting marshmallows on a fire you’ve made yourself!
    4:00-5:00 Pot-holing or High Ropes  Time to challenge yourself – whether you’re skimming the treetops as you climb the High Ropes, or navigating your way around the underground tunnels – you’re guaranteed a fun activity to get the adrenalin pumping!
    5:00-6:00 Chill-time  Time for settling into tents, getting to know tent-mates and freshening up before dinner.
    6:00-7:00 Dinner  Lasagne, garlic bread and salad bar, apple crumble and custard.
    7:00-8:00 Evening Games  Could be anything from tobogganing or a game of ambush to going on a bat detection mission on our Wild Night Safari.
    8:00-8:30 Campfire Supper  At the end of an exhilarating day it’s time for hot chocolate and reflection around the camp-fire.
