Festivities for Children

The VII Fort proposes two unique educational programmes to mark special events such as birthday, pre-school or school graduation; these fun-filled activities will whisk children away to the amazing world of natural sciences or that of history – to enjoy entertaining tasks and games but also to live unforgettable moments of knowledge and discovery.

Both “Young Scientists’ Lab” and “Military Drill” entertaining programmes guarantee your children a wonderful, useful and exciting day, filled with joy and fun.

  • Time of event: you can reserve any day of the week; on weekends we propose to start at 11.00 or at 16.00; on weekdays we will find the best time in coordination with you
  • Duration of event: 2.5 hours + 1.5 hours of free time on our premises

Test tubes and vials clinking gently, dry ice patiently waiting in the storage containers, solutions of all colours and uses are being mixed with each other in lab beakers…time to get ready for Young Scientists’ Lab event!

Secrets of science will soon be unlocked by the very hands of our young scientists: aided by experienced coordinators, the children will carry out most exciting of experiments in the VII Fort laboratory.

This specially designed scientific programme will leave no one bored – children and parents alike will be drawn by the magic of science. Whether your children are playful or rather calm – they will be equally impressed by numerous demonstrations, games and scientific experiments – science can be truly fascinating! We will show the bunch of our young scientists an array of chemical and physical phenomena, will then explain the scientific reasons behind such spectacular reactions and will allow them to consolidate the freshly acquired knowledge by conducting practical experiments themselves.

Children, in full personal protective gear compulsory to real scientists, will observe and carry out various experiments in our state-of-the-art laboratory. They will be supervised at all time by our experienced personnel who will ensure their safety in the vicinity of normally inaccessible substances and equipment.

Military Drill

  • Event designed for: 7-14 y.o. children
  • Time of event: you can reserve any day of the week; on weekends we propose to start at 11.00 or at 16.00; on weekdays we will find the best time in coordination with you
  • Duration of event: 2.5 hours + 1.5 hours of free time on our premises

This adventure-fuelled entertaining programme is for those who dream to become real-time fortress warriors; “Military Drill” means you and your friends in military camouflage, orientation competitions for fastest and quickest-reacting, and trying climbing courses all for yourselves!

The programme’s participants  will be divided into teams that will compete with each other in a military mission – an orientation game or, rather, a hunt to find a treasure, hidden in the VII Fort by its ancient defenders. In the process the children will get to know the history of the VII Fort and the everyday life of soldiers that inhabited the Fort; they will be able to master their skills in a military-type game. Climbing courses will present some serious obstacles and will require some courage for crossing; in return the children will be rewarded by the sweeping view of the VII Fort and a unique “hanging in the air” experience!

The children will be guided and supervised at all times by two experienced instructors. Albeit active and challenging, all planned tasks and competitions are totally safe. Note that girls are also welcome to join our military-style adventure; no doubt, they will love challenges as much as boys will.

We can also offer an indoor programme!
