Event Details

Half-term Forest School (8-11 year olds) 


Set in a stunning woodland overlooking Chew Valley Lake, this half-term we've got something special! If your kids are aching to get outdoors, get muddy and get creative then here's their chance!

During our Forest school for 8-12 year olds we'll be getting hand-on with fire skills, campfire cookery, using hand-tools for wood-craft projects, playing games and getting muddy! 

Looking for activities for 5-7 year olds? Click here.

 

It's the perfect half-term antidote to the school classroom! 

 

Forest School is a valuable opportunity for children to:

  • work co-operatively and build trust and respect for one another
  • learn new practical skills
  • develop self-esteem and independence
  • connect with nature around them
  • have fun!

 

Prices includes a hot drink and snack on the day and are inclusive of booking fees.

 

 Recommend a friend and you both receive 10% off!

 

Location

This Forest School session will be held in woodlands in Chew Stoke. Click here to see the location of the woods on a map.

 

Toilet Facilities

Since this Forest School is out in the wilds(!) we have no permanent toilet facilities on site and so will be providing a temporary, private (and hygienic) latrine that we will show children how to use. A great skill to learn for wild camping! Hand-washing facilities will be provided.
