October Half Term Adventurers Day Camp Shepperton Willow Coppice
Mon 24 October 2016, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
Places still available on Tuesday.
Looking for something adventurous for the kids to do during the summer holidays? Our willow woodland is FAR more fun than a day in front of the TV!
Each day is different, but we'll be doing a mixture of:
- Den building
- Lighting fires
- Telling stories
- Campfire cooking
- Outdoor crafting
- Wild wide games
- Using tools
- Minibeast safaris
- Rope walks
We have a campfire every day (usually with popcorn, bread or marshmallows to cook - yum!) and your child will have a chance to make something to take home - as well as new friends, muddy clothes and a big smile!
What ages do you take?
From age five to fourteen. While that seems like a wide spread we are used to having all ages on our events - so long as the children are enthusiastic we find it works!
How many places are available?
We generally take six children per instructor (max eight to one). That's why we have a waiting list - if there are enough children looking for a place we'll try to get another instructor.
Is the whole day spent outside?
Yep. A whole day out in our beautiful willow woodland! So bring your waterproofs!
What if it rains?
We get wet! The day will go ahead whatever the sky throws at us, so it's important to dress for the weather. You'll definitely need waterproof trousers, a waterproof coat, wellies/boots and (hopefully) a sun hat and sun cream too!
No, but really - what if it rains?
Really! We like to throw up some tarpaulins to shelter under for lunch, but we'll still be out having fun!
What do they need to bring?
We'll be outside for the whole day, so they'll need:
- Warm layers
- waterproof trousers, essential kit
- waterproof coat, essential kit
- outdoor footwear (walking boots or wellies)
- Packed lunch
- Plenty of drink for the day
- Mid morning and afternoons snacks
For everyone's safety, it's also important that they don't bring any of their own tools (no knives, fire flints or similar).
My child has special needs, can they come?
Please ring us before booking to discuss your childs needs (07928 752707) or use the message button below. We try our very best to involve everybody, but the nature of the site and the activities may not suit everyone. Children with low levels of autism and dispraxia tend to love the camps. For everyone's safety, we can't accept children with a history of violent behaviour or running away.
Erm...the marshmallows...are they vegetarian? Beef free? Pork free?
Oh yes! We have a selection for everyone's dietary needs (though the veggie marshmallows are a different shape!). Let us know any dietary needs when you book and we'll cook something that everyone can eat.
