Activities at Fanwoods Activities at Fanwoods

At Fanwoods we offer many activities approved and designed by highly qualified and trained staff in the relevent activity's field. All our activities are regularly inspected, modified and updated to conform with current outdoor adventure education theory and to conform to all current health and safety theory and best practice.

We can ether supply instructors to work with your group - or we can offer instructor training so that you can instruct activities to your own groups. Ideal for groups planning more than one trip, or planning to use a certain activity more than once.

Please note that the crate stacking, ladder climb, low ropes, and night line changing areas are all flood lit and can be used after dark. The archery, boulder wall, and Jontys cave are all inside and can be used regardless of the weather.
