A fun and interesting way of connecting children of all ages to the beautiful Dartmoor landscape as well as meeting other children and burning off lots of energy!

Who: This event is aimed at children between the ages of 5-11 years old. There is some flexibility depending on the pace and energy of your child, so please get in touch if you think this would be suitable.

All children must be accompanied by an adult. And you are encouraged to help out!


Fee and booking: £10.00 per child. Group size is limited so pre-booking is essential. Full payment must be received in advance.
