Ilkley Summer Holiday Forest School


We’re back at the beautiful woodland of Middleton Wood Ilkley, for our Summer Holiday Forest Schools, perfect for children to get their exploration fix before school is back! Practitioner Sam will have a great mix of nature connection activities, crafts, games and play on offer to engage children over the two day forest school.


Our Spring Bank forest school sessions give children aged between 5 and 11+ years the opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy nature with friends whilst building resilience, learning new skills and exploring on their own terms. There are so many activities to choose from including whittling, games, den building, tree climbing and crafts, to name just a few.


The programme will be led by experienced and qualified practitioners who will bring lots of ideas to go with the children’s own for playing, building and creating with natural resources in the woods.


Key booking information:
