Social (Transition and Pastoral Activities)

Team Building Activities
Looking for something that will get your kids talking and working together?  Why not bring them along to one of our partner sites to enjoy some team building fun.  From drain pipe races to spiders web challenges, we will use the natural environment to create an atmosphere of fun and co-operation. Best delivered at Hamsterley Forest.

Team Orienteering
Which team will be the first to work together to solve all of the puzzels and gain the most points to win the Team Orienteering challenge?  After a short introduction, and the completion of several mini orienteering challenges, your students will be 'let loose' to find and solve the various clues to gather the combination that will open the 'treasure box'.  Best delivered at a partner site.

Survival Challenge
Would your students survive if left to their own devices?  This session will test and encourage your students to think creatively and work together.  They will need to think on their feet, deciding what to do and where to go to optimise their chances of survival.  Their team work and choices will be scored, resulting in sudden death or super survivers!  Best delivered at Hamsterley Forest.
