Explorer birthday parties

Looking for a new and unique party experience?

We have a fabulous range of outdoor experiences for children of all ages! The Wittenham Clumps are a great place for birthday adventures at all times of year. Explorer Birthday Parties are suitable for children of all ages and we can tailor your party to suit your child’s age and interests, perhaps theming it around their favourite book, film or character.

Children can have a go at combinations of activities like den building, camouflage and survival skills, wild crafts, magical quests, fantastic exploration games, hunting for treasures and more...
