Spooktacular Family Fun day      -     All Ages - Friday 26th October 11 - 4pm


We're excited to announce that we'll be holding a wild and spooky autumn themed Family Fun day at Pinewood Scout Centre, suitable for all children (and their parents) aged 2 - 16


*Spooky challenges - to earn a prize, negotiate the 'Spiderweb', brave our 'Whats in the Box',  practice your aim and 'Bash the   Beastie', 'Splat the Tree'  and other fiendish challenges we've not dreamt up yet!

*Dress up our Wild scarecrows

*Make a Genuine Magical Broomstick

*Carve / make a magic wand

*Make a Clay Critter to take home or leave in the woods to scare passers by!

*Bring a jar and make a lantern to keep you safe in the dark!

*Get your face painted

*Help us cook up a delicious witches brew on the camp fire

*Mud play, potion making, exploring and tree climbing

*Follow our secret trail through the woods

*Find mysterious clues hidden around the woods for a prize

*Spooky tales around the camp fire for different ages

*Practice your whittling and fire lighting skills in the Bushcraft zone. If you already have and can safely use a small carving knife,   bring it (in your parent's pocket not yours!) or if you'd like to learn you can use ours. (Ages 6+ as a guideline for this area)


Bring a picnic and if you want to, something simple to cook over the fire (sausages on sticks or a tin of hotdogs to nestle in the embers) There will be tea (herbal and builders), coffee and a selection of home made cakes to buy.


Feel free to come dressed up spookily (Grown ups too!)  


Price per child for the day is £15 (unwaged) £20 (waged) £25 (generosity) 50% sibling discount

Accompanying parents (up to 2 per child) and under 2's go free.  Extra adults £5 each.
