Activities are suitable for children of age 4-11 years and children must be supported by a guardian or parent during the session.

  • Make a boat out of recycled materials to race down the river

Children and parents will need wellington boots to explore the river (no crocs or bare feet please). bringing a change of socks and spare clothes is recommended!

Sessions are 1 hour long and require booking a free place. The boat race will be held at the end of the session.

Families can drop by and leave any time during their pre-booked session.
