Woodland Birthday Extravaganzas!

Exclusively for 7 - 16 +


Cotswold Forest School invites you to have a fantastic birthday at our beautiful Clayhill Woodland, situated in the heart of the Cotswold Water Park. The parties can involve any woodland activities but the most popular ones are wilderness skills, shelter building, cunning camo’ and cooking marshmallows on our open fire. We aim to differentiate our activities to meet the childrens' expectations and their age group. 


Woodland Birthday Extravaganzas for Every Season!


Our Woodland Birthday Extravaganzas last two hours.  Depending on the choice of activities the youngsters will have the opportunity to experience a plethora of exciting woodland activities. As with all our woodland experiences, the children are given a clear and concise health and safety brief before and whilst in the wood.


Parents are very welcome to bring along anything simple that can be cooked on our campfire; we normally recommend BBQ pre-cooked sausages or hot dog sausages, burgers and bread rolls. We also have a dedicated veggie grill and tools. Children often bring marshmallow for dessert! We always encourage everyone to sing a very Happy Birthday. We endeavour to conclude the Woodland Birthday Extravaganza with traditional woodland games.


Our woodland parties are for up to 15 youngsters although more can attend if pre-arranged. The cost is £18 per child (2 hour party) with a minimum fee of £180.

This is payable by BACS (Sort Code 40-17-25 Account No.21541846) before the party. Please note that the costs per child includes all the activities, use of tools, materials and insurance, though not food.


We ask at least one adult to stay at the party, though would request more for children aged 7 - 8 years. Bookings can be made via either email or telephone. We would kindly ask for parents to let us know about any health problems or dietary requirements the children may have and to give us a emergency contact number for each child attending.

He has an Enhanced CRB police check and is a fully trained First-Aider at work. All activities are risk assessed through our generic risk assessment policy.
