Birthday parties

Give them a wild birthday!

Surrey Wildlife Trust's nature themed birthday parties are stuffed with fun activities and wild games!

Our parties are designed to give your children a fun-packed day and to keep yours stress free! Choose from a variety of party themes below.

All our parties are suitable for fifth birthdays and above.

Choose your party theme

Minibeast Hunt

Minibeast hunt badge

A minibeast safari to discover what is living in the wood through a series of minibeast themed games, sensory activities and searches. During the party you will hunt under logs, sweep through the grass and shake trees to discover the many creatures living in the habitats of Nower Wood. The woodlouse trail will show you just what it feels like to be a creature wandering around the wood at night.

Woodland Fairies

Fairy badge

A host of different activities and games await you on our magical fairy trail around the wood with a “Good Weather” spell and plenty of fairy dust to help you on your way. You will make your very own fairy to take out into the woodland and together you’ll explore the fairies’ homes and discover how to look after them.

Treasure Hunt

Pirate badge

Find the pirate’s hidden treasure by following clues and completing tasks around the wood. We will equip all the treasure hunters with pirate bandanas and treasure maps before setting off on a big adventure around the wood. To find the treasure you will work your way through mazes and along blindfold trails, using your map reading and problem solving skills along the way. No treasure hunt would be complete without a sword fight and walking the plank.

Woodland Survival

Survival badge

Imagine you’ve crash landed in the woods: you must navigate using nature’s clues, find resources to survive, experience the woods at night (with our blindfold trail) and see who can build a shelter to survive the elements.

Basecamp

Basecamp badge

Make the woods your home! Collect natural materials and fallen wood to make a shelter and fuel your camp fire. Once the fire is roaring, you'll have the chance to toast a marshmallow in the flames!

Due to a limit on attendee numbers as a result of government social distancing rules, our parties are currently priced at our minimum charge of £150, with a non-returnable deposit of £50. The remaining balance can then be paid in person on the day of the party by cash or card.

Before making your booking, please read the important information below, which includes information on current restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Important information

COVID-19 Update

Due to current government social distancing rules, we can currently hold parties for up to 10 children and 2 accompanying adults with social distancing in place. This ratio is non-negotiable.

On arrival at the centre, everyone will be asked to go over to the toilet block to wash their hands. Anyone showing any symptoms of coronavirus will not be allowed to stay on site and we would ask that if you or your household have been asked to isolate that you do not come to the reserve.

We reserve the right to cancel the parties if current government restrictions increase or if a tutor has been asked to isolate due to COVID-19 and we can not provide a replacement. A full refund will be provided in these circumstances.

About our parties

Our parties are held at Nower Wood, our beautiful private reserve near Leatherhead.

Parties are available from 10:00-12:00 and 13:00-15:00 on Saturdays and Sundays and in half terms.

Each party lasts for two hours, during which we keep children busy and happy with themed games and activities, ending with 15 minutes for birthday cake and/or snacks, provided by you, under our outdoor shelter. Please understand we have extended the time on activities to keep the children warm and active for longer as the season progresses as all parts of the session will be outdoors in accordance with Covid-19 precautions.

We also provide wildlife-themed party invitations for the birthday child to give to their friends.

Facilities

There are toilets and hand sanitising stations available at the Centre. You will have use of our covered outdoor shelter as parties will now be completely outdoors, so please ensure your guests all dress appropriately for any weather.
