Child-only Forest School activity camp for 8 – 11 year olds.
Get ready for a summer of fun! We will be running our amazing Forest School Camp this summer holiday so kids can get into the woods and go wild with amazing outdoor experiences, making friends and having lots of fun. Our experienced Forest School and bushcraft-trained staff have lots of exciting adventures planned, which will include the following activities…
• Den building, fire lighting & campfire cooking.
• Wonderfully wild wide games
• Pond dipping for fish and all sorts of aquatic beasties (we will try to avoid dipping the children!)
• Animal tracking, bug hunts and the ongoing search for interesting animal poo.
• Natural craft and painting with leaves, berries etc.
• MUD! Painting with mud, making sculptures with natural clay, digging rivers and building sand/mud castles.
• Wool work and willow weaving – spinning wool, making dream-catchers.
• Free play – tree climbing, making up your own games and making friends.
We will be using the Forest school approach of listening to children to find out where their interests lie as well as suggesting and scaffolding activities, providing resources, skills and tutorage. We have a flexible plan for different activities so each day with us will be different and exciting.
For children aged 8 – 11 years.
