Adventure forest parties with We Are Adventurers

If you go down to the woods today … you’ll find outdoor birthday parties packed with new experiences to make an extra special birthday. This is a two hour event, hosted in secure natural woodlands, with the space to comfortably host between 12 and 30 children – and a collection of parents – for children aged 5 – 11.

We have a sheltered base camp area with a campfire, surrounded by wooden log benches where we start our safety briefing. Then it’s some woodland familiarity games before heading into the main activity. Activities include: den building, bug hunts, adventure assault course or survival skills – or, if your child has a special interest in pirates, Robin Hood, magical wizarding or super heroes, we can plan your adventure forest party around their theme.

Every party concludes with the birthday child lighting the campfire, gathering around to sing happy birthday and then time to toast a marshmallow before heading home.

  • Do you run all year round?

    Our birthday parties run throughout the year, with the exception of August when our team are delivering the main holiday club programme. During wetter weather, we alternate between sites to allow the ground time to recover. In dryer weather (from 1 April – end of September) we are able to accept birthday party bookings on both sites concurrently.

  • How much does it cost?

    Parties cost £14 per child for a 2 hour party excluding food. We charge for a minimum of 12 children.

    A £50 deposit is required when you book and the remainder is due 7 days before your event. If you cancel your event with more than 30 days notice, we will refund your deposit. If you cancel your event with less than 30 days to go, you will be liable to pay the entire bill.

  • What does a typical party look like?

    Our standard party lasts for 2 hours and normally consists of:-
    – A safety briefing.
    – A couple of themed games to get everyone used to their surroundings (all related to their themed activity).
    – The themed activity.
    – We follow the activitiy with more games.
    – 20 minutes for the children to have their food/cake.
    – We finish with fire and marshmallows.

  • Which party theme can I choose?

    The theme of the party can be chosen at the point of booking with a choice of Pirate Adventure, Robin Hood, Enchanted Forest or Survival.

    We are happy to cater for other themes of adapt each theme to suit your child’s wishes.

    Themes can be discussed with the instructor running your party who will call you a few days before your party date.

  • What's in the party bags?

    Our party bags are £3.50 and contain a reusable water bomb, a glowstick, sweet lolly, a pack of smarties, a WAA guide to building dens in the forest, and a branded WAA pencil and notepad.

  • What should I wear?

    Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather. We recommend including a waterproof coat / trousers, wellies or strong shoes, several layers and a spare set of dry clothes to go home in. There is limited shelter and we don’t stop for rain!

  • What shelter do you have?

    If it rains, we all get wet! Often the best parties are the ones where it’s muddy! However, we also have a shelter that we put up for the parents and for the children to have their food under – no one likes a soggy sandwich!

  • Can I bring my own cake?

    Yes!

  • What if I need the toilet?

    There will be limited toilet facilities in the location – this may be a portable loo in a tent!

  • Do all of the parents have to stay at the party?

    Parents are welcome to stay or simply drop off and pick up. We provide tea and coffee to anyone who would like it.

  • Can siblings of the birthday child attend the party?

    Yes, siblings under 3 are welcome to attend but must be accompanied by an adult and will not be charged. Older siblings must be included in the party numbers or supervised by an adult at all times.

  • What if I have any other questions?

    Most questions can be answered by the instructor leading your party who will call a few days before the event.

Testimonials

Thumbs

“A huge thank you for the party today in Chorlton. Florence had a brilliant time and hasn’t stopped talking about it. In fact, all the mums and dads spoke highly of the party and were really pleased with how everything was run.

“Both myself and my husband Rob want to thank you for all you did. The day went really smoothly and all the kids were engaged and loved the activities. It was such a great opportunity for them to experience an outdoor party and definitely something very unique. I would definitely recommend it to friends in the future.”
