Enriching outdoor activities for 5-10 year olds during the school holidays.
Experience swinging from trees and using tools to create crafts.
Enjoy making a selection of foods and cooking them on the camp fire.

Plus more exciting outdoor activities.
An example of our day at camp:
The day begins with an introduction to our boundaries, through playing games (like duck duck goose) around the fire circle. We have three rules to ensure we have fun and remain safe (look after yourself, look after each other and look after the woodland).
The children then have the opportunity to light the fire or explore the activities on site. We prepare and cook our mid-morning snack, which we share around the fire.
Children are invited to make lunch, while other staff support the children exploring other activities/crafts available.
After enjoying our ‘home made’ lunch on offer or own own pack up, there is the option to play team games or use tools to create woodland crafts.
During the afternoon we cook a ‘sweet treat’ and we have the opportunity to ride the raft (if there is water in our pond)!
What should my child wear/bring?
What should my child wear?
It is very important that your child is dressed appropriately for Forest School camp, in order for them to enjoy the experience and opportunities we provide. Your child should arrive wearing old clothes, with their waterproofs and additional clothes packed in a bag. The kit identified below, will help protect your child from the elements:
o Waterproof trousers(optional)
o Wellington boots or old trainers
o Warm hat, scarf and gloves or a sun hat
o Warm trousers or lightweight long trousers
o Long-sleeved top
oThick socks(for winter)thermal or two pairs
What should my child bring?
If your child is participating all day (10.30-3), they will need to bring a drink and packed lunch. Although, we provide hot chocolate and cook refreshments on the fire, your child may not like the food on offer. Therefore, we do suggest they bring a packed lunch to keep them fuelled for an active day outdoors.
Spare clothes and footwear are also strongly recommended, as we have lots of mud and water on site!
If your child requires medication this should be brought to camp and handed to a member of staff at the beginning of the session.
