The club runs for 10 months with one meeting held on the first Saturday of every month from 10.00am to 12.30pm. Over the 10 months the children will have the opportunity to take part in many different activities including:
- Learning the Falconers knot and safety.
- How to make equipment.
- Fly and handle different species of owls, hawks, eagles and falcons.
- Go out hunting with the harris hawks.

At the end of the ten months the children then go on to perform their own flying display, where we invite family members in to watch. We hold a bbq and hand out certificates of achievement. The cost for the membership is £95.00 and a sub fee of £2.00 per month is payable.
