About our Holiday
Forest Schools

Our play-based, child-led programme includes outdoor games, woodland crafts, fun activities and campfires in stunning woodland settings.  All of our programmes are led by qualified Level 3 forest school practitioners who have up to date first aid certificates, enhanced DBS checks and insurance.  Our holiday forest school programmes are aimed at primary school-aged children. Older children are also welcome at our forest school sessions.

Hands-on learning

Nature-based learning provides inspiring, positive experiences allowing children to learn and develop new skills while having fun in an outdoor environment.
