Hobbiton adventure Menu

Our tailor-made adventures, camps and retreats cater for everybody, whether you are a school, church group or corporate client looking for leadership and team-building adventure retreats.  To see what we offer to each group follow the links below:

Schools | Churches | Organisations

Use our Activity Menu to choose the best adventures for your group.  We offer activities for small groups and individuals over weekends as well as school holidays.  All our group activities are followed by debriefings so that learning is shared.  We explore how these lessons can be implemented in future decision-making in the ‘real world’.  The impact of these learning experiences can seldom be generated in the same way at home or at school. 

Hobbiton believes that an outdoor experience in an exciting, supportive environment is pivotal to the development of a well-rounded person and a healthy society. 

The costs for standard bookings include safety equipment, facilitation and instructors for all of the activities.
