School Trips and Events

Holiday events and activity days for children 5-12 years 

For children 5 years and up our weekend or school holiday events are very popular. Some are even themed such as our fun Halloween and Christmas workshops. We treat our woodland activity days the same as our Forest School sessions and 2 x Forest school practioners  along with DBS cleared individuals run the events.


The days usually run from 10-2pm snacks and drinks are included and the children will have a range of activities, crafts and games to choose from alongside freeplay in the woods in our mud kitchens, hammock and slackline.
