On September 2nd and 3rd this year, Trewern will be giving you the chance to sample a few of the things that we do here at the Centre. We’re offering a fun mix of activities and ecology over two days for £10 per activity session (i.e. morning, afternoon and/or evening), with the option of staying over on Saturday night, as we’ll continue our activities into the night (fees vary according to the type of accommodation required). Activities suitable for young people from 8-16, adults also welcome to join in.
Planned activities are as follows (timings approximate):
Saturday 2nd September:
10am-1pm BMX session -come and have a go at our pump track! Bikes and safety equipment will all be provided.
1-2pm BREAK FOR LUNCH -please bring your own packed lunch.
2-5pm Archery session -test your aim on our archery range.
5-6pm BREAK -a chance to settle in for anyone staying the night.
6-7.30pm Pizza making session -build your own pizzas for us to cook in our clay pizza oven, then chill around the campfire.
8-9.30pm Ecology session -find out about the wildlife in and around the Trewern site, as we place our moth trap, set our ink traps (for mammals) and take a walk to look for bats and bugs. If the skies are clear we may also have a chance to do some stargazing.
