Full days of fun and adventure in our wonderful woodland playground, for children aged 5 and over.

Our holiday activities follow the Forest School ethos of facilitating child-led learning and discovery in the outdoors, building on the innate curiosity and sense of wonder that the natural environment brings out in children of all ages.

Which activities we get stuck into will be largely determined by the group, the weather and other factors on the day, however, we usually get up to the following sorts of adventures:

  • Bushcraft
  • Environmental art
  • Woodland crafts & games
  • Campfire cooking
  • Journeying through the woods
  • Free play

Based at one of our established camps, complete with large group shelters and fire pits, these days offer an exciting opportunity to play, learn and make new friends, whatever the weather!

We all had a wonderful morning exploring. It’s always astounding how a calm peaceful place can evoke such an exhilarating learning experience. Beyond the whispering trees and crackling flames were den missions, music, problem solving, laughter, creative clay, climbing, singing, digging, tree naming, pushing, pulling....all there for the taking- no wonder no one wanted to leave!
