  • We stopped local as a group of 5 family’s with kids and went down for the afternoon. Everyone had a great time building dens and doing the children’s orienteering. Would highly recommend for an afternoon out.

    Another fantastic party back in July at Scammonden View, this time code breaking, as well as lots of other games and activities. All the children loved it and what a great setting! Thanks again Chris and Lisa. See you for summer camp ;o)

    This was amazing fun for the kids. Let's be clear, it's cold up there I'm October! We did the Halloween experience, making broom sticks, dens, wand making, brewing up a potion. Followed by hot chocolate and marshmallows cooked on a fire.

  • A great choice for keeping the children entertained during the 6 weeks. A bit different to the usual school holiday clubs. My children went for the first time on Wednesday, as it was suited to my 10year old daughter as well as my 7year old son. Neither share the same interests yet mutually enjoyed this experience. Will definitely be bringing them both back x

  • Had our 9 year old's party there today. It was brilliant. Very well organised activities, kids kept entertained for 2 hours non-stop, lunch boxes were great too, just right. Would definitely recommend 🤩
