Birthdays and Parties

Fun in the outdoors!

A day to remember...

For you and all your friends!

SHAC Parties are a great way to celebrate a Birthday or other celebration & are perfect for those who love being outdoors. Any of our activities can be tailored, making it possible for them to be enjoyed by groups of children, adults or a mixture of both. We offer Woodland Parties, SUP Parties & Mountain Biking Parties across our Surrey locations. The price of a Party package starts at £300 for two hours of a chosen activity plus time to enjoy Birthday meal at the location. To find out more about our parties and to check availability please contact info@theshac.co.uk or complete our enquiry form for further details. You can also read our FAQs for a comprehensive list of things to wear and bring to a SHAC party.

Catering is usually provided by the party host or can be arranged by us if you prefer. You can bring a cold, picnic style meal, or you are welcome to cook over the campfire. We will set up the grill over the fire and offer advice on suitable menus.
We can also create an online invitation for you to forward to the partygoers giving details of location, a kit list and a link to a permission form (necessary for each attendee) so you won’t need to chase them for the forms.

Woodland Adventure Birthday party

Here at The SHAC we offer a few different birthday party options including our ever popular Woodland Adventure Party covering elements of bushcraft and survival, den building, fire lighting and much much more. (from 6 yrs up, maximum 20 participants)


If you fancy something different for yours or your partner’s birthday or an older child please get in touch. We do mountain biking parties and Sundown and overnight adventure parties . We can cater for any special occasion including hen and Stag Dos and family parties. We have access to a range of caterers and a number of accommodation options in stunning locations, Contact us for details.


The SHAC MTB parties are held across our Surrey locations and can be tailored to suit all age groups. The party begins with some skills instruction followed by a guided ride on MTB trails that are appropriate for the age & ability of the whole group. At the end of the ride the riders will dismount at our Woodland Base Camp where they can rest & eat around a campfire. A MTB party costs from £300 for up to 12 participants & participants need to bring their own bikes and helmets.


The party includes 2 hours of professional mountain bike skills instruction out on the Surrey Hills trails near one of our sites followed by a campfire lunch or tea at our base-camp in the heart of the Surrey Hills. (from 10yrs up)


if you are organising a party for a water baby why not celebrate their special Day with a SHAC SUP Party? A SUP party is great for children and adults alike. The party can be tailored to the age and ability of each group but generally the party format starts with SHAC instruction, followed by some games. We then set the party-goers free to explore and practice on the SUP boards.

At The Lagoon we also have a giant SUP board that a group can all fit on and use if they choose to. The time on the water is usually 1.5 hours. After time on the water you can cater for your guests on the grassed area next to the water. At the Lagoon we have picnic benches in place for your party and there is a barbecue that you are welcome to use or you can bring a picnic. At Dapdune Wharf there is plenty of space for a picnic next to the water’s edge.

All of our SUP sessions are ideal for private group bookings and can be included as part of Corporate Away Days, team building events, schools, social clubs & family groups as part of a larger programme of SHAC activities or as a stand alone experience. Prices for a SUP party start from £360 inc VAT.
