Bradley Wood Go Wild PosterThere’s lots to do at Bradley Wood this summer holiday for ages 8 to 12! Why not book onto one of our activity days, no two are the same and there’s something for everybody

£30 per day and days run from 9am to 5pm

Daily activities consist of the following

On an adrenaline day you’ll have an action-packed, none stop day filled with adventure from start to finish! Activities will include: the leap of faith, high all aboard, Jacobs ladder, climbing, abseiling, tree climbing, slack lining, low ropes and much more!

If you come on a creative day you’ll be out in the woods, personalising your own GO WILD t-shirt, building bird boxes, making walking sticks, catapults and other inventions. There’s plenty to do, finishing off with making some seriously good food!

Ever fancied yourself as the next Bear Grylls?! Think you’ve got what it takes to survive in the outdoors? Then get down to a survival day this summer. Learn how to build and light fires, cook on them, build shelters and even do some archery and coracle building!

It’s a catastrophe! You’ll need work together to find the clues and solve the mystery. Get ready for blood and gore as you learn how to handle any First Aid situation!
