What we'll do
Our forest school at Hinksey Heights Nature Reserve is a small group great for children of all ages. We currently have participants up to the age of 14 and their younger siblings. There is a stream and a large pond onsite so do come equipped to explore the watery environments. We follow the 6 principles of forest school with the session being very much child led. As participants express their interests our sessions adapt to meet their needs and ideas. We have occasional 'leave no trace' fires where we cook sausages or marshmallows or other fire snacks. There is a lot of whittling, den building, pond dipping and dam building happening at the moment.
About your mentor
Vicki CM
Creative Mamma, Outdoor Adventurer, FS leader
Qualified and insured Level 3 Forest School Leader and a Home educating Mum, I am passionate about getting children and adults outside and allowing them to explore and learn at their own pace. I run participant led sessions outside following the children's needs and interests. I have 3 boys who are all home educated and involved in the sessions with us. We have been attending forest school sessions as a family since we started home educating 9 years ago. I have worked with children and adults in the outdoors in a number of different capacities and love the forest school ethos of participant led sessions and community building in an outdoors environment.

Cancellation Policy
I am not able to offer refunds in general but may be able to if there is good notice.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
