This article reviews seven brilliant School activity day ideas and what makes them ideal for School children.
Creating Experiences with School Activity Day Ideas
We have around nine core activities, and seven of these are included as Activity Day ideas on this page. There are a host of things we can do alongside these, and the experienced Highline Adventure team challenges the children through a series of tasks to amp up the excitement.
Why are Activity Days Good for Children?
When children have been working hard as a peer group or year, perhaps as an entire School, it is essential to encourage and acknowledge this positive behaviour. At Highline Adventure, we've been providing outdoor activities since 2003 and have helped hundreds of Schools across the UK celebrate their children's achievements.

- Team Building
- Life Skills
How can experience days help children?
With the cost of living increasing across the UK and families having less disposable income, fewer are able to spend cash on experiences for their children. Some children will have never experienced a Climbing Wall or been able to compete in archery days. Activities like this are grounding as it means that kids from across the School or year can discuss their experience of the activity day and what they enjoyed the most. Some will overcome fears, and we've seen it all. So whether your children are fearless warriors or not quite sure, our experienced team of professionals can help them experience a climbing wall for the first time together confidently.
One - Mobile Climbing Walls are perhaps one of the most exciting activities you can do for an activity day. The walls are huge but quick to erect and dismantle so the children can maximise their time on the apparatus. So if you are considering this activity, here is more information on Mobile Climbing Wall Hire.
Two - Mobile Half Pipes
Many will have Scooters, and some will have tricks, even if they don't. Mobile Half Pipe Hire is a fantastic activity for kids nowadays, with Skating making a strong comeback.
Three - Bouldering Walls
These are ideal on their own or hired alongside our Climbing Walls The bouldering walls are a safe place for children to build confidence, and more of them, up to six at a time, can engage in climbing.
Four - Archery Days
Perhaps one of our best activities is marquees for wet days, and we take the children through training to ensure that they learn how to use the equipment safely while trying various challenges. The sense of achievement from Archery Days is significant, and as a School, you can take pictures to commemorate this. Ideal for School News Letters.
Five - Skate Park Hire
These can be set up in just 45-mins from arrival, so things can be going quickly. Children receive training and coaching on how best to use the equipment, and this is useful for building confidence to use the equipment. Bikes, Scooters and Boards can all be used on the ramps. Schools are normally ideal for this activity thanks to the large playgrounds.
Six - Spider Mountain
Ideal for kids and adults alike, and 7m high, with chambers to catch you. Partnered with the inflatable slide, it is a great activity for learning and negotiating. Spider Mountain can take some thinking to complete when it's filled with objects.
Seven - Bouncy Castle Hire
Bouncy Castles are always a winner and can still be experienced by non-able-bodied students if it is safe. Because castles can be hired alongside other apparatus, they are excellent for keeping kids entertained, including those that do not fancy the climbing wall or perhaps cannot for medical reasons.
