Forest School Easter Camp

April 6 @ 2:00 pm - April 15 @ 4:00 pm

£5

We are delighted to be back in the woods this coming Easter holidays with our Forest School Play sessions for children aged 5-12 years of age.

These sessions will run from 2pm-4pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays of the Easter Holidays and each session will be jam packed with lots of outdoor fun including nature crafts, challenges, games and introducing new and exciting bushcraft skills to young children.

If you are considering these sessions for the first time here is a bit of background information.

What is forest school?

Forest school is an increasingly popular programme where children spend quality time on their local green or woodland spaces, make connections with nature, experience free play with elements of healthy risk, use tools, make nature crafts and have an all round amazing time!
The many benefits of forest school include:
Improved relationships and social skills
Improved health and well being
Better physical fitness
Improved mental health and a more positive outlook
Improvements in fine and gross motor skills
During the sessions we have fully trained Level 3 Forest School practitioners, full qualified outdoor first aiders and volunteers with a range of skills to help your children have a fulfilling and happy time in the woods. At each session we have the following:
Tree Swings
Rope Ladders
Hammocks
Mud Kitchen
Digger Zone
Den Building
Fire Lighting
Nature Crafts
Bushcraft skill development
These sessions have now become increasingly popular due to the Covid 19 pandemic as outdoor play is one of the safest options for allowing your children to socialise. We are also limiting group sizes and we anticipate sessions to be popualr so please book early if you are interested. If you would like to reserve a space for your child you can block book for the 4 sessions here:
