We are taking provisional bookings for parties from September in the hope that the situation with coronavirus improves by then. However, please note that current government guidance means that we are unable to deliver parties for more than six individuals from different households (including the tutor) with social distancing.
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.
Our parties are held at Nower Wood, our beautiful private reserve near Leatherhead. They 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 an hour and a half of themed games and activities, followed by a half hour birthday tea provided by you. We also provide wildlife-themed party invitations for the birthday child to give to their friends.
Our facilities include a large room with outdoor access and a sink with a drinking water tap. Tables and chairs will be set up for you, but please bring your own decorations. We are afraid that we can’t attach them to the walls, but table decorations are welcome. We really recommend thinking 'eco' when you plan your decorations - we aim to be plastic free! For more information on our venues, please click here.
All parties are suitable for a maximum of 17 children, except Base Camp which has a maximum of 12. Parties require a ratio of 1 accompanying adult to 6 children, and accompanying adults are thoroughly encouraged to take part in all of the activities.
Additional adults who need to stay on site during the party are welcome to stay in the party room until the children return for their birthday tea, but we advise limiting the number of adult attendees as this keeps the party as child-centred as possible.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Everything was brilliant from the first enquiry to the end of the party!
