Family activities at Woodrow High House
New for Easter 2021! Join us during the Easter holidays for a day of exciting outdoor activities, for the whole family. Whether you’re looking for a fun way to entertain the kids for a few hours, or a full day of outdoor adventure, we’ve got you covered.
What’s it all about?
Each activity session is available to be booked by a single household / household bubble only, as social distancing between participants is not always possible. We can accommodate up to a maximum of 8 people per session. Government guidance on support bubbles can be found here and the latest Covid19 roadmap guidance here.
We’re offering your family / household bubble the opportunity to visit Woodrow this Easter and try out some of our most-loved activities. Activities are bookable as single sessions and it’s up to you to design your own day. As you’ll be the only family taking part in the activity during your time slot, it’s a great way to enjoy some quality time outdoors in a Covid-secure way. You’ll have the opportunity to really bond with your family and your instructor, as they skilfully guide you through your chosen activity.
Is your family the adventurous, thrill-seeking type looking for high adventure? Perhaps you’re wanting to put your problem-solving abilities to the test, with a friendly competitive edge? Or maybe you’re looking for a more relaxing day of exploration and nature, finishing with a picnic? Read on to find out more about the activities on offer.
