Forest Adventures

Forest Adventure Activities

Emma, our qualified forest leader, always has lots of fun craft or cooking activities planned. She comes prepared with something new each week. There is also always time for den building, worm hunting, welly wading in our stream or playing on the tree swings!

The forest adventures offer a learner-centred approach, where children can learn through self-directed play and exploration. Every child is given the opportunity to develop their own curiosity, confidence and creativity, as well as their knowledge and understanding of the natural world.

Each session has a different craft activity, game or cooking activity to enjoy, so no two sessions feel the same.

We have wonderful woodlands on site, that we have specially developed with the help of volunteers, to enable children and groups to enjoy at their own pace and for their own purposes. We have a rich natural habitat and our woodlands are home to many bird species, deer, foxes, mice and mini beasts galore!

Forest Adventures runs every Wednesday in term time and every Wednesday and Thursday throughout the school holidays during August, October half term, February Half term, Easter and May half term.

We are closed at Christmas.
