Celebrate your child’s next
birthday party at Sheldrake
Some of Our Party Themes
Enchanted Fairy Party – Build a beautiful woodland fairy house from a bird house and various natural elements like moss, sticks, acorn and leaves.
Happy Bird-Day! – Make a feeder and explore outdoors looking and listening for birds.
Scavenger Hunt Safari – Search the trails to find natural treasures.
Who Lives Here? – Hit the trails with a great educator-led nature walk! We might roll over logs, visit the frog pond, play a game of camouflage, or complete a scavenger hunt depending on time of the year. Treat your guests to a great seasonal hands-on walk!
Animal Olympics – Test your skills in fun, animal-themed games.
