If you are looking for a children's outdoor activity party with a difference look no further. Children's parties are available to ages 5 years plus. We are able to offer most of our activities but they may not all be suitable for all ages.

Below are the 3 most popular activities we deliver for children's parties. If you like the look of something else on our website, please get in touch and we will be happy to forward information regarding specific activities.

Bushcraft

Our forest based parties are by far the most popular choice for our children's parties, for both boys and girls. Bushcraft is all about learning to live with nature, using what's around us and respecting our environment. During the activities we follow a leave no trace ethos, educating the children about how to enjoy and look after the environment. The activities include den building, making hot chocolate on storm kettles, fire lighting, cooking sausages on an open fire, eating bugs, toasting marshmallows, shooting bows n arrows and where time permits, other forest based games.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Venue: Dirleton, East Lothian.

Age: 7 years plus

 

Numbers: The maximum number of participants is 14. This is so that we don't impact too heavily on the areas we visit.

 

It is expected that at least one adult known to the children will be present throughout the activities. This allows any domestics to be taken care of without impacting on the activities.

 

Duration: Approximately 3 hours

 

Friday afternoons are also available in school term time. Term time Fridays are £30 cheaper than other dates.

We are unable to deliver activities for parties during Easter and Summer Holidays!

 

Cost: £230 (We do not charge on a per head basis) / £200 for Friday afternoons during term time.

 

Food: As part of this activity we offer the chance to cook sausages over a griddle on an open fire. We need to keep things simple so as not to take up too much time cooking.

 

We do not supply food, this is down to you. Most groups bring sausages, rolls, ketchup and marshmallows.

During activities we make hot chocolate using storm kettles, the hot chocolate and everything associated with it is supplied by us.

 

What to wear: Clothing that can get dirty and smell of fire smoke. Wellies or other appropriate footwear. Waterproofs, hats & gloves if required.

 

Weather: We expect the activities to go ahead whatever the weather. Of course we would cancel on grounds of safety for severe conditions.

Pirates

Our pirate adventure party is definitely a party with a difference. For under 7's we offer party activities based around a pirate theme. The activities are short and plentiful to keep the wee ones engaged. Find the map, build a hide out, practice your defences, break out of jail, run the gauntlet, dig for treasure and return to your den to share the loot!

Raft Building

Raft Build is a fantastic team related party activity which gets everyone involved from the off. Depending on numbers the activities can be run as one group or as two groups competitively. The activities begin with a series of fun problem solving games where the team earn points which can later be exchanged for raft parts. So if you don't put the effort in whilst doing the games you may get that sinking feeling when it comes to paddling the raft! The team must then build their raft before setting out on the water.
