Choose from the following 5 activities - all designed to promote and encourage different strengths
The Low Ropes Challenge Course
Set in a pretty wooded corner of The Mill grounds, this low level high impact activity offers pupils a number of challenging elements which require concentration, develop team skills and create trust. The object is to circumnavigate the complete course without a single member of the team touching the ground. Easy? Think again.
The Brain Teaser Trail
A puzzle solving activity in the woods. Each team member will be given an object to carry with them which they will use to solve clues in order to move on to the next challenge. The terrain is picturesque and can be steep, rocky, wet and muddy. This is a big favourite with children and the ideal opportunity to work together.
Dropped behind enemy lines, the team must build a structure that will effectively shelter them from the elements, using nothing more than natural resources available in the woods. This is great for developing leadership skills and improving innovation and resourcefulness.
Boat Building & The Great Boat Race
The challenge is to build a model boat to race along a 50-metre length of stream. This activity is great fun and very good for developing innovation and dexterity.
A set of team challenges requiring a mix of mental and physical effort to complete, often with the increased pressure of a time limit. Stimulates quick thinking, open communication and leadership.
