Schools, Colleges and Education
Wild Pines Park works with schools and colleges from around the region and we are happy to plan programmes to suit your needs. Typically we offer a day of activities including ropes course, archery, 4 treasure hunts, a bear hunt and den building at a heavily discounted rate. The day starts at 10am and finishes at about 3pm with a short break for lunch. We can start and finish at any time to suit your requirements.
All courses and programmes can be tailored to meet your needs. Our programme offers opportunities for rapid and effective team building. As participants learn to rely on each other in an outdoor adventure context, a sense of camaraderie develops that focuses the team members on the goals of themselves and the group.

ARRIVING ON TIME AND FINDING US
We’re a pretty relaxed bunch at Wild Pines Park. We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes prior to your allotted start time. Arriving early gives you and your group enough time to meet everyone from the team, and get your bearings and learn the ropes before your adventure begins. Please note that woodlands don’t stick to postcode boundaries so please don’t rely on your SatNav to get directly to us. Check out our How To Find Us page!
Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a member of the team who will introduce the whole team you will be with for the day. There is no parking charges too.
WHAT TO WEAR
Wild Pines Park is activities are mainly outdoors, so we suggest you wear something you don’t mind getting grubby, and of course, dress for the weather! No open-toed or slip-on footwear is permitted on the courses. Please wear secure closed-toe footwear with a good grip. We recommend ankle supporting shoes such as trainers. Some people like to wear gloves, especially if it’s cold. You can borrow pairs on the day if you wish, just ask an instructor.
Long hair should be tied back, waists covered, and body piercings removed or taped over as the participants will be wearing harnesses. Please note there are plenty of changing facilities if you wished to get changed on site.
SUPERVISION AND RESTRICTION RATIO’S
Our Instructors are extremely professional and will help people in the tree and will even go through the course with them too. They will oversee the fun. We have no requirement for staff to participant ratios. They are constantly monitored whilst being attached to the flawless single line safety system. Our team will discuss this supervision at the beginning of your day. Quite often teachers leave our team to do what we do best and decide to relax in our hammocks!
