Summer is here so head outdoors for our awesome Survival Party (6-14 y/o). This involves an action-packed expedition into the woods or a park, where children become sneaky snipers, learn about camouflage, make fire without matches, build shelters, eat bugs and play woodland games like capture the flag and 40:40. This is ideal for all those budding Bear Grylls out there! For aspiring athletes who are into silly races and competitions, the Mini-Olympics Party is the one for them (4-10 y/o). Both parties finish with an epic game of water bomb catapulting! For further information visit Sharky & George or email team@sharkyandgeorge.co.uk.
