Children's Adventure Parties

"...I just wanted to write a little note to say thank you for doing a great party for our very excited son and his friends last Saturday. They all had a fantastic time, and M tells everyone he meets about what he did and how good it was. Thank you for making it both fun and educational - a perfect mix of activities..."

"...Thank you very much for the other day up at Wendover Woods, it made D's birthday..."

"...We all would like to say a hugh thank you for a really enjoyable afternoon with our party activities with you yesterday... You really connected well with the kids and made it enjoyable for them.  I know they will remember what you've told them for a long time!"

"...we couldn’t have asked for more: the boys and their friends had such fun and are still talking about it. I think ... You did a great job and we’ll be in touch again..."

Our Children's Activity Parties are all about having fun and they're great for birthdays! I am currently able to offer these at the Forestry Commission's Wendover Woods (where we have an exclusive permit to do this). A fun packed session that will keep your group of youngsters entertained, whilst teaching them some basic outdoor skills in a relaxed and engaging way. Directions via Streetmap to Wendover Woods (opens new window).

I am also willing to offer Activity Parties at your home: providing the site is safe and suitable. Please contact me to discuss this option.

If you have any queries in the meantime, please contact me.
Please Note: once you have made a provisional booking I will hold it for you for 7 days only: to allow you to confirm it with a booking form and payment cheque, (or deposit if we have agreed that). If I have not heard from you after 7 days I will re-open that activity slot again to everyone.

Party Food options: -

The Forestry Commission barbeques have their own private spaces and picnic tables and cost £30 per session: all you need is some charcoal and your choice of food & drinks! I am happy to help you get your BBQ lit, if required ;-) Contact the FC office on 01296 625825 to book.

Bring a picnic! If wet you can quite often gain shelter at no charge in the Go Ape covered area (next to their cabin). A really cost effective option.

To book party food at the Cafe in The Woods: you can now contact them directly via email.
