Bedgebury Team Building

The Kent High Weald Partnership offer a range of challenging, fun and exciting team building activities for schools and groups at Bedgebury Pinetum, the Forestry Commission’s iconic woodland site near Goudhurst, Kent.

  • Team Tactics
  • Shelter Building

For more information on Bedgebury Team building, bespoke visits and prices etc. please contact the team on TeamBuilding@khwp.org.uk

The cost per group will be:

  • Team Challenge and Shelter Building – £200
  • Team Challenge, Shelter Building and Map Reading – £240

Group size will be limited to 30 children plus adult helpers. We can accommodate up to 60 children across two groups.

We are working hard with our partners Forestry England to provide activities and keep everyone at Bedgebury Pinetum safe. Users for the site includes those doing Go Ape, hiring bikes from Quench Cycles, using The Pinetums self-guided trails, participating in Forest School and of course the general public just here for nice stroll.

With all these users we need to ensure that the site is not overbooked and that all site users can stay safe and enjoy themselves. As a result availability will be limited.

The activities-

Team Tactics

The team tactics is a series of five 10-minute challenges that will test brain and body, but mostly the communication and leadership skills of the group.

Crossing the Snake Pit — a physical challenge that requires strength, balance, a clear plan as well as some wooden planks and milk crates.

The Communication Caterpillar — a communication and trust activity as blindfolded team mates guide each other around a woodland course.

Abandoned Herbicide — lateral thinking is required to move the ‘poison’ with the given equipment without touching or spilling it.

Lumberjack Relay — A fun and frantic ball kicking; wheelbarrow wheeling; foot-ball throwing; dressing up; crazy scramble for points.

Towers of Hanoi — A fiendish ancient maths puzzle made big with car tyres and wooden posts.

Shelter Building Challenge

Bring out your inner engineer with this shelter building challenge. Working in teams and using natural materials, you will construct sturdy and weather proof shelters.

The shelters will be subject to rigorous tests to ascertain their structural integrity and water proof qualities (we use a member of staff and water to do this). Points will be awarded based on the results.

All supporting adults are FREE to attend! We recommend 5 adults to a class of 30

Your parking is FREE for your trip with us too!

If your school has an above-average percentage of pupils eligible for free school meals, Bedgebury may be able to help with your transport costs for a booked visit to Bedgebury.  Email Bedgebury@forestry.gsi.gov.uk for more info  on this.
