Join us for our monthly morning of fun and adventure in our wonderful woodland playground. We’ll be taking a short walk to one of our lovely camps, where we’ll get stuck into natural crafts, games, camp fire cooking, singing, free-range play…or maybe just relaxing by the fire! Oh, and did we mention our incredible mud kitchen?!

All sessions are facilitated by experienced Hidden Woods leaders and will go ahead in all weathers – if necessary we have large group shelters with fire pits and plenty of great activities that we can do underneath them.

These sessions aim to provide time and space for parents and children to step back from their busy lives, to reflect and interact with the world at nature’s pace – slow and steady. Whilst we will have various activities set up, the sessions are very much child-led, and often go in different directions! Whether the children are up for some quiet fireside crafts or burning off some energy climbing and digging, they’ll have a great time. These events also bring together a fun, friendly and caring group of parents, who seem to enjoy the activities and fireside social as much as the children!

Great family morning spent exploring the hidden woods. Definitely down to the activities and planning of the guides. Loved the craft table and singing. Our 2.5yr old talked about the pancakes all afternoon. Big hit! We have a number of friends that want to come along next month. Is it advisable to book early?

Thank you so much to the Hidden Woods team for creating such a fun family morning in beautiful surroundings.
The hammocks and rope swing, mud kitchen, climbing logs, campfire (toasted marshmallows!!) and campfire singing were all loads of fun. Just being out in nature in a safe, supportive environment was just wonderful. We will definitely come again!
