Everyday activities

Outdoor Centre

From spring ranger days to low ropes and archery, the Outdoor Centre invites you to embrace the great outdoors in the spirit of Scouting and Guiding.

Every day at the Outdoor Centre

Drop into the Outdoor Centre on your day trip and whilst you warm up with a cuppa, check out the Scouting and Guiding displays at the Trading Post.  You can learn about Lord Baden Powell’s legacy and pick up a memento of your visit including badges and post cards.  If you drop by in the colder months the rangers light the campfire and invite you to warm your toes and toast marshmallows. 

Ranger days

Why not bring your budding young naturalists on a spring ranger day to learn what its like to look after this incredibly diverse habitat?  They'll get stuck in, following in the footsteps of one of our friendly Outdoor Centre rangers and learn some fun bush craft skills.  It’s a great opportunity to make friends, get active and make a real difference in helping the team look after this special place.

Adventure activities

The Outdoor Centre team invites all visitors to have a go at some fun outdoor adventure activities.  Archery is a great way to try something new and test out your hand eye co-ordination. Our rangers will take you through your training and give you tips on how to shoot, whilst you pit yourself against friends or family.

In the woodland you’ll come across our adventurous low ropes course which is split in to different challenges.  Working with a buddy; try manoeuvring yourself around the course without touching the ground and be the first to ring the bell at the end. Great for family and friend groups or creative team building; this course caters for little legs or longer arms alike!
