When it comes to organising days out with the kids to keep them amused during the school holidays or as a special treat for their birthday, it's never easy to make the right choice. We've made it simple for you with a fab range for you to choose from. Some of the activities are kids only, whilst others can be done as a family, but in essence the idea is that your little ones get to enjoy a rip-roaring day out just for them.
We've created an exciting selection of activities that kiddies will adore. Our days out with a difference range from cowboy adventures and secret agent camps, to falconry sessions for youngsters and loads more. And of course, all the instructors and tutors involved are expert leaders and fully qualified, keeping the children under their watchful eye for the duration of the day. Read more...
This is the section of activities and days out we have created just for kids. Whether they are action girls or action boys, love nature or are fans of the Hunger Games, we have a day out that will get them grinning from ear to ear. The great outdoors has never looked better to teens and and nippers than when it involves doing something way cooler than just hiking. We’re thinking a bow and arrow, a bird of prey or perhaps a few targets to aim at.
Some of the experiences featured need little or no adaption from the adult equivalent, but what's nice about these child-orientated sessions is that they are for youngsters of around the same age, so they can all get involved together. Some of the things to do will simply amaze them. How many kids do you know who can cook an egg in the embers of a fire thanks to some children-friendly bushcraft training like this little dude in this woodland survival skills video?
We find that most youngsters are initially a little bit apprehensive about some of the activities. Take for examples meeting raptors, but once they are standing there with the glove on and the bird lands to deftly and softly on their hand, the look on their faces of sheer joy is priceless.
Kids will impress the grown ups with new skills
It's also a case of proud parents here we come when you see your offspring hit the target for the very first time on an archery lesson. Centres have gear specially adapted for kids, so there will be lighter bows that are easier to handle, or air guns with little or no recoil. Of course, none of that detracts from the excitement of the session, after all, it's not every day they get to square up to a knock down target and blast a hole in it!
And one many parents will appreciate - our pony keeping experience. How many of us have been nagged and nagged until their angelic little faces turn blue when they think they want a pony? Well, with this ingenious course you can give your darlings a proper insight into what it'd really be like to have a horse - prefect for showing them just how responsible you have to be at a young age to be a rider and owner of a hoofed friend.
And whilst the kids are doing their activity you can relax!
So whether your wee bairns want to hit the target, learn how to be a skilled spy like a young James Bond, handle an Eagle with aplomb or get the knack of being a baby-faced cowboy or cowgirl, we have got some absolutely fantastic options for days out with kids. What's more, for the parents, there's usually a nice cafe for you to relax in, whilst the kids burn off their excess energy during their activity.
