Our event leaders all come from a background of running Scout groups and as such bring a variety of skills but most importantly a passion for getting children into the outdoors!
Below is an example of the activities we would run throughout the week. Please note these activities are subject to change from day to day dependant on weather conditions so this is meant as a guide.
- Fire lighting, scavenger map / map reading, wide games, cooking over fires (smores, marshmallows, sausages, dough twists, backwoods cookery), hikes to Windsor Castle through Windsor Great Park, knots, obstacle courses, shelter building, blind trails, bug hunts, small pioneering, making survival bracelets, camp quiz and more…..
The Green Outdoors team will provide food for the children. As part of our daily activities we provide all the children with a hot lunch, so there is no need for you to prepare a lunchbox. Throughout the day we also provide healthy snacks, fruit and drinks. For any children arriving between 8:00-9:00 we can offer a light breakfast of cereal, toast or fruit, and for those staying until 17:00-18:00 we will prepare a light tea.
Our daily itinerary is a well organised and challenging range of activities, set in a safe environment.
What age group do you cater for?
From age 6 to 12. Dependent on the split in ages, we may run variations of activities in smaller groups.
Would you cancel for bad weather?
Absolutely not…. We have a great indoor space and will change the planned activities accordingly if the weather outside is particularly horrible.
What do they need to bring – kit list?
We will be outside for part, or most of each day, so your child will need the following: (please note – their clothing could get muddy)
- •Waterproof Jacket
- •Warm layers (Fleece and man-made layers are best)
- •Outdoor footwear (walking boots or wellies with warm socks)
- •Please do NOT send your child in with any other food including sweets for the safety of others with allergies.
Can you cater for special needs/disabilities?
Please contact us before booking – firstname.lastname@example.org – if your child has a specific need. We endeavour to cater for everyone, but due to the nature of certain activities and locations it may not suit everyone. For safety reasons, we cannot accept children with a history of running away or violent behaviour.
Can you cater for vegetarians, gluten free, lactose intolerant etc?
We can cater for a variety of needs, but please specify clearly on the application form your child’s dietary needs and allergies!
Do you offer a sibling discount? Yes, we are happy to offer a discount for siblings with the first child paying full price.
Sickness and refunds
If your child is unwell on the day we are happy to offer them a place on another date, space permitting. As a space will be allocated for your child, we are unable to offer refunds for illness on the day. If you wish to cancel please give us at least one weeks notice for a full refund.
