BSO Mini Adventurer

Preview

Let active kids discover their adventurous nature

Suitability: Kids 4-8 yrs accompanied by an adult

Let your mini adventurers explore the Thornbridge site with a range of activities designed to encourage team work and the exploration of nature. The Low Ropes course will provide a challenge in balance, trust and confidence. Moving on they will enter the subterranean world of The Molehole, a purpose built tunnel network which must be navigated to escape at it's far end. It’s a dark place, but they will have some torches to help them on their way. They will then move on to learn how to use their senses to make it around the Nightline before a session on the Thornbridge bouldering wall. Parents must be present to keep protective eyes on their little ones, but not to get too involved.

What you will get out of the day

Mini Adventurer is all about letting your kids tackle and overcome challenges by themselves. But fear not, a Thornbridge instructor will be there to encourage and guide them as they progress around the circuit. Parents or guardian must be present to offer encouragement but do not need to purchase a ticket. Depending on weather and the group abilities the exact order and number of activities undertaken may be subject to change.
