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! We are currently able to offer these at two locations: at the Forestry Commission's Wendover Woods (where we have an exclusive permit to do this), and at our secure private estate site near Princes Risborough an. 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.
£140 (inclusive) for a 1 hour activity (this would have time to focus on 1-2 topics e.g. shelter building (main activity) and a fire lighting demo)
£210 (inclusive) for a 1.5 hour activity (this might include shelter building (main activity), a fire lighting demo and a look at Nature's 1st Aid Kit or a scavanger hunt.)
Sessions generally last for 1 to 1.5 hours. We are happy to put together a longer activity to suit your requirements. Please contact me .

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.
For parties booked at our Great Hampden site: you are welcome to bring your own picnic and sit around the fire; or we can supply charcoal & a large grill if you wish to cook sausages, burgers, steaks etc. We are happy to provide tea & coffee for you (without charge). There is an additional charge of £50 for party groups wishing to use the site after your activity. Should it rain we have a large barn (bit draughty). We have toilets and clean drinking water on-site, with plenty of secure parking.
