On selected dates throughout the year Blithbury Reindeer Lodge hosts open days when you can explore the Lodge, meet our beautiful animals and take part in a range of activities.
These exclusive days give you the rare opportunity to see how the Reindeer live and play at different times of the year; whether that’s Easter, when we are busy preparing for babies to arrive, or the summer months, when the sleigh-pullers start their training for the Christmas period.
As one of our next open days we will be hosting a Junior Reindeer Handler Event.
Junior Reindeer Handler Event
We will be hosting our first ever Junior Reindeer Handler event on Wednesday the 22nd and Thursday the 23rd February 2017. This provides the perfect opportunity for children to get an insight into what goes into taking care of our reindeer on a daily basis.
The event will run for 3 hours and will include:
- Introductory talk by our Senior Reindeer Handlers
•Assist on the feed round to feed all our hungry reindeer
•An in-depth reindeer talk to learn specialised knowledge from our handlers
•Learn all about grooming a reindeer, from hoof picking to harnessing
•Under guidance by our handlers learn how to lead a reindeer round a set track
•All followed by a fun quiz to test how much you’ve learned
You will be part of a small group for the activities.
At the end of the session each child will receive a certificate and a small gift.
There must be a minimum of 1 adult per 2 children. The spectating adult will pay an admission fee, and observe their child/children during the activities, but not take part.
The event is open up to children aged 6 to 15 years old. We set the age limit as based on the activities that we offer as we deemed to be a safe age for the children. There is a lot of information to comprehend with the instructions and information we will provide, as the session is very interactive.
We will run morning sessions on both Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd February running from 10am til 1pm.
Spaces at this event are limited and must be booked in advance!
