More and more parties, family gatherings, stag and hen groups are looking to try something a little different when they get together, with groups wanting to have a unique experience in the outdoors. We are able to create bespoke activity packages for any timescale and for groups that exceed our normal working ratios.
Events can be arranged for any number of participants. The larger the group, the more complex the logistics and staffing become but we can facilitate a potentially unlimited number of participants with the right choice of activities and timescale.
With our average small-group bookings it is possible to keep a group together at the same location doing the same activity. With large events it may not be possible to do this and we will create an activity rotation. Large groups will need to be split in to smaller units and rotate around different activities, coming together at swap overs and the end. Using this method, large groups can be catered for without causing problems with over crowding and long waiting periods. Specific options available and locations will be dependant on your numbers.
With the right team, any of the activities that we offer are possible as part of a group event. Some will require more time or less numbers so it is best to speak to us about what you hope to do. For some guidance on what is possible, here is a basic list of possible activities and considerations but please speak to us about what you wish to do, we will have other options.
Rock Climbing - Allow 2hrs per 12 people. Easy to combine with Weasel, Abseil or Orienteering. Many location options, some requiring no driving to do all multiple activities. All abilities catered for. Can be all day.
Weaseling - Highly active and able to be fitted in around other activities due to flexible time requirement. All abilities catered for. 2 hours generally.
Abseiling - Usually done as part of a rock climbing event but fine on it’s own. As time consuming as climbing. All weather option. Limited locations.
Orienteering/Treasure Hunting - Bespoke trails and self led navigation courses on their own or between activity bases. Created on demand for you to fit in with other activities.
Caving - Allow 2hrs+ per 8 people. Separate locations to most other activities so may require you to drive. Can fill a whole day if required. Minimum half day.
Archery - Based out of our wood at Whaley Bridge. Max 8 per session. Times to suit. Combine with Bushcraft or Tyrolean crossing on our site.
Bushcraft - Based out of our wood in Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire. Numbers and timescale flexible. Combine with Archery or Tyrolean Traverse at our own site.
Tyrolean Traverse - Simple crossing 1.5hr per 8 or try our ‘Build your own Bridge’ activity (allow 2hrs per 8).
As above, combine with others at our own site. Other locations available near rock climbing. Ask for details.
Team Games - Any activity rotation can have team games built in for fun or we can make a specific session out of it. These work great partnered with our ‘Build your own Bridge’ tyrolean crossing.
Zip Wires - Based out of our wood in Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire. Numbers and timescale flexible. Combine with Archery or Bushcraft at our own site.
Bespoke Activity Planning
Larger groups with activity rotations and set timescales will require more behind the scenes work to facilitate than regular bookings. All events are quoted for individually as staff numbers, kit levels and venue fees will vary per group. Once we have agreed a plan that you are happy with, we will require full payment at the time of booking.
