Festival HAF and School Activity Club

Come and join us for some festive fun this December – fancy-dress and festive hats are encouraged! Enjoy a hot meal at the end of the the activity session and take home some festive goodies!



For one week only, we will be offering a range of festive activities aimed at getting local children active and into the great outdoors and encouraging fun craft activities. Each day, we will offer a fun-filled indoor and an outdoor activity (weather permitting) before lunch.

Not only will the children have great fun on the activity but they will also enjoy a delicious meal to re-charge their energy levels!

Come and enjoy the festive spirit!

Monday 19th December:  Follow the clues to find the Christmas Treasure. This treasure hunt will have the children searching for hints all over the site to find Father Christmas’s Treasure Chest. When it is time to come inside, have fun making your own Christmas ornaments and decking the dining hall in festive decorations. To wrap up the morning’s antics, included is a hot two course meal.

Tuesday 20th December:   During a morning of air rifles, see who is the best marksman or woman in your group. Our indoor activity today is decorating your own gingerbread man or Rudolph, which you can take home at the end of the day. A delicious two-course hot lunch rounds off the morning.

Wednesday 21st December:   Enjoy bushcraft activities and roast marshmallows over the open fire. We will also be making our own Christmas cards today using natural materials and leaf printing. Our chef will provide a scrumptious two-course meal before you go home.

Thursday 22nd December: Take part in a ukulele workshop run in partnership with Dorset Music Services. Children benefit from music that matches their needs and interest – so strum along to catchy tunes! We will also play outdoor Christmas games to release some energy. To wrap up the morning, included is a hot two course meal.

Friday 23rd December: Go hunting for the Grinches – will you be on the side of the Grinch team or the humans when we battle it out in our tag archery session? Thanks to using foam-tipped arrows, tag archery is safe and hilarious fun. Then, it is time to get cosy and watch a Christmas movie together. As a grand finale you will have Christmas lunch with all the trimmings – paper crowns and all! There might even be presents under the tree.

What Parents Say About Us

My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the two days she spent with you over the holidays. The staff which I had the pleasure of meeting whilst dropping and picking her up were really lovely, happy, chatty young people who gave her two very fun filled, enjoyable days. Thank you all so much.
