Robinwood 2018

There is no better way to help a child than to inspire them, and an unforgettable residential trip can do just that. Robinwood offers a wonderful opportunity to open minds and nurture potential, to teach life skills, build confidence and create a better understanding of the world. Spending time away from home can also offer young people a chance to embrace adventure and take calculated risks, face new challenges, build self-esteem.

Dobroyd Castle is set high up on the Todmorden moors enjoying some fantastic views of the surrounding area. The 17 acres of grounds, which accommodate Robinwood adventure and teamwork activities, are also the home for a wide range of wildlife including deer, rabbits and many more.

The converted sports hall provides some fantastic indoor activity areas. It houses climbing walls and indoor trapeze areas, within which children are challenged to leap from a small platform at the top of a wooden pole just over 4 metres high. We also have indoor archery ranges and rooms in which crate challenge takes place We have three different themed problem solving areas; Quest, the Dungeon and Piranha Pool. Staff love developing these areas to ensure the challenges involved really capture the imagination of the children taking part.
