Price

 Party A

 £10.00 per child

Off peak
 Party B  £12.50 per child  Peak
 Party C  £12.50 per child  Peak
 Party D  £12.50 per child  Peak

Prices are based on a minimum of 12 children.  For context, the majority of parties have 12-16 children and some have 20 plus (even up to the order of 30-35 children!) in particular for younger children inviting the whole school class.

The birthday child and any attending siblings between the ages of 4 and 16 inclusive are to be included in the number of children attending.  Any additional attendees that arrive on the day (above the confirmed number) must be paid for and these can be paid for in cash on the day or we will invoice after the party.

For larger groups, often parents will organise joint birthday parties to share the cost between families.  If you are thinking of a larger party do get in touch to discuss further.

Off peak times are weekdays during school term time from 10am to 2pm.

Peak times are weekends, after school and during school holidays.

What is included?

Included in the price are the following:
  • Outdoor activities.
  • Refreshments for children (squash and biscuits).
  • Refreshments for adults (tea and coffee).
  • Camp fire food (typically Cumberland, Lincolnshire or seasoned pork sausages in bread rolls).  Note:  specific dietary needs can be catered for such as vegetarian or gluten free provided sufficient notice is given. 
  • Marshmallows or popcorn.
Birthday cakes and party bags/gifts are not included but can be brought to the party.  Singing "happy birthday" around the cake works well later in the party, after camp fire food.  Whilst the cake is being cut the children can cook their marshmallows around the fire.

Birthday parties normally work well where there is a mix of 'full on' physical running / activities and action combined with periods of calmer activities, that alternate throughout the party.  Activities can be varied to the example shown above depending on the group, age and weather. 

If you have other specific requirements or ideas then we will try to cater for them. Please get in touch and let us know how we can assist in making your child's party tailored to their desires and great fun.

We want your child's birthday party to be thoroughly enjoyable and memorable through having the most amazing fun in the outdoors.

Note: A responsible parent/adult is required to stay with the group during the party unless agreed otherwise beforehand.  Parents are required to provide details of allergies or specific health requirements for all children.  A list of children and emergency contact details must be provided and available on the day of the party.  Children (and adults!) should be dressed according to the day's weather conditions including waterproofs and warm clothing e.g. hiking boots, welly boots, layered clothing, coats, hats.

Availability?

On weekends and during school holidays birthday parties typically run in mornings and afternoons with time slots of 10am to 12 noon and 2pm to 4pm respectively.  During late Spring, Summer and early Autumn parties are also often held after school e.g. from 4.30pm to 6.30pm during weekdays.  There is often more flexibility for off peak parties.
