Parties for children

We offer exciting and fun birthday parties for children and their grown-ups in our woodland.

We host woodland parties in the forest. Run by Youth Options parties include den building and a campfire with marshmallows, you can also add a theme from the following options depending on the age of the children:

  • Teddy Bear Picnic - bring along your teddy and make a wooden medallion for him, headdress, flag and den
  • Camouflage - try to disappear into the undergrowth with your headdress, face paint and capes then play hide'n' seek
  • Pirates - make a pirate ship and flag, hunt for treasure and walk the plank!
  • Bushcraft (for six to ten year olds) - use Kelly Kettles to boil water for a hot chocolate or damper bread making

Parents are welcome to stay with younger children and make it a family party but they will be expected to join in the fun - face paints and all!
