Birthday Parties with a difference

Want to do something really different for your son or daughter or family and friends?  Then have a party with us.

We provide the fantastic set party packages as outlined below or we can design your very own bespoke party activity experience.


Package 1: Indoor Target Archery

Here is your opportunity to try the amazing sport called archery. During this 90-minute session, you will learn how to become a safe and competent archer at our Indoor Archery Range at Clatto Barns. You will just need time and practice.

Our qualified instructors will teach you the basics of shooting and guide you through a number of games, all under their close supervision. The Archery Introductory Session is open to all ages from 8-year-old to adults. We try to cater for all needs, so please get in touch with us if you have any condition that may affect your ability to shoot safely.

This package caters for up to a maximum of 12 participants on these days. Come along with your friends and family and get ready for a great day.

Group can either meet the instructor at the venue by arrangement or be transported by minibus (10 mins) from our main base at Ancrum Centre.

Package 1 Cost - £120


Package 2: Dry Slope Skiing

Come and book your very own group beginner 90 minute ski lesson on our Centre’s dry slope. Our highly qualified instructor will get you all sized up with skis and safety equipment and take you all at your own pace through a fun introduction to skiing. This is a great chance to start up a new winter sport activity and may produce some future champions.

The minimum age for this activity is 5 years and we cater for up to a maximum of 8 participants for skiing.

Package 2 Cost - £96


Package 3: Dry Slope Snowboarding

This package caters for a maximum of 6 participants and runs for 90 minutes. Our Centre snowboard instructor will take you through your paces to get you gliding goofy or regular and ready to hit the slopes ... when the snow arrives at the ski centres!  For age 12 years and over.

Package 3 Cost - £90 (1 - 6 participants)


Package 4: Introduction to Climbing

Learn the skills of rock climbing at our Centre’s outdoor climbing wall and indoor bouldering room for a 90 minute session. Our instructor will teach your group the basic movements on the wall then play challenge games and see who is quickest to reach the top. This package is weather dependent and in event of adverse conditions we would run the activity from a local climbing venue at Avertical World which would incur additional facility entry fee which must be paid on the day by party leader.

Package 4 Cost - £90 (1 - 8 participants) or £150 (9 - 16 participants)


Package 5: Skiing / Climbing Combo

Fancy doing 2 great activities for your party? Then why not combine a beginner dry slope ski session within an intro to climbing at our Centre. If you choose this for up to max 8 participants, you will spend an hour on the slope followed by an hour on the climbing wall. For those who buy the package for 9-16 participants, the group shall be split into 2 and one group will do skiing and other climbing then they shall swap over.

Package 5 Cost - £120 (1 - 8 participants) or £200 (9 - 16 participants)
