If your child is aged 8 or over there will be something to captivate their imagination and support their development at our holiday clubs.

Even when school is out our children never stop learning and there’s no better environment to support your child’s growth than a natural one.

Outdoor learning is being increasingly recognised as playing an integral role in holistic child development. With benefits including improved language and communication skills, increased self esteem and confidence, more motivation and greater concentration to name a few. All that besides, it’s good clean, or rather not so clean, fun and has something incredible to offer every child. 

As with all our activities for youngsters, holiday clubs follow the Forest School ethos of facilitating child-led learning and discovery in the outdoors. Everything we offer builds on the innate curiosity and sense of wonder that the natural environment brings out in children of all ages.

No two days are ever the same at holiday clubs. We take our lead from the interests of the children and the conditions on the day, exploring adventures like bushcraft, environmental art, woodland crafts and games, campfire cooking, journeying through the woods and of course, free play.

We enjoy taking the opportunity to pass on a range of hard skills to those eager and interested, including using tools and managing risk effectively, bushcraft and survival knowledge. Supporting the development of softer skills like cooperation, empathy, emotional intelligence and leadership are elegantly weaved throughout the sessions by our experienced leaders. 

With our well-kitted-out-for-any-eventuality 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!


Each day starts at 10am and ends at 4pm.

For children that need to be dropped earlier or collected later, we have supervised free play in the camp from 8.30am-10am and 4pm-5.30pm. There is an additional charge of £6 per session (or part of) for this service, which can be added to your booking using our online booking system.

Our holiday club days run Mondays-Thursdays* throughout every holiday except the Christmas break. To check availability click the ‘Book Now’ button and scroll through the calendar.

We’re pleased to offer 5 and 10 day passes, which are valid for 12 months. The 5 day pass saves you 10%, and the 10 day pass saves you 20% on the normal price (making it £31.50 and £28 per day respectively!).  The passes can be redeemed against any of our school holiday activity days, either individually or in a block. We’re also happy for passes to be shared by siblings! Please click here to purchase one of these passes. Once purchased you’ll be able to start booking your preferred dates using your pass.

Please note that when sharing a pass between siblings, each must be booked on separately – the booking system will try to charge you if you select more than one child at a time!

My daughter says of her day there:
”It was amazing how free you can be there. I liked making s’mores.”
She had a lovely time and is keen to return again this summer.

“My two sons aged 10 and 12 had a brilliant day today - it was the first time they’d been and were there with a couple of their friends from school. They excitedly told me about everything they did. My younger son said that he would love to come again with friends whereas my older son said that despite having a great day he preferred to be in a club that he goes to where they play a lot of football - that says more about him than Hidden Woods specifically but I would have no problem booking them in again. At the end of the day, they had fun, were outdoors and with experienced leaders, cant ask for much more than that!
Many thank”
