Holiday activities (TAZ)

Our holiday activities take place at High Ashurst (near Dorking) and Thames Young Mariners (alongside the River Thames in Ham) and include a range of exciting and engaging outdoor adventures that are ideal for school holidays. We offer both land and water-based activities, as well as single or multi-day visits.

Forest Schools for toddlers and children

We offer Forest School sessions run by qualified Forest School instructors which are perfect for toddlers, children and their parents to explore what the outdoors has to offer. Our Forest Schools sessions focus on discovery and play in the outdoors.

Water activities for children and adults

Our water activities at Thames Young Mariners have been set up to help young people and adults hone and learn new and existing skills in the safe environment of our enclosed lake. These sessions perfectly complement the British Canoeing (BC) and Royal Yachting Association (RYA) courses we run during the school holidays for children and on evenings and weekends for adults.

Weekend Winter Explorers

Thames Young Mariners is open all year round and the team are looking forward to welcoming adventurous 'Winter Explorers' (aged 8-13 years) on alternate weekends throughout the autumn and winter. Swap your sea legs for land legs this winter, wrap up warm and come join us in taking part in exciting outdoor activities.

TAZ small group activity and family sessions

The Adventure Zone (TAZ) is a great opportunity to spend quality time together and learn a new skill by taking part in exciting adventurous outdoor activities at one of three locations: Thames Young Mariners (Ham between Kingston and Richmond), High Ashurst (Mickleham near Dorking) or Henley Fort (Guildford).
