Event description

Description

This is a for Home Educated children to come and undertake the John Muir Award. The Award can be undertaken by children aged 7+, however, younger children can come along and take part, without gaining the qualification. So siblings can come too! Participants need to undertake the equivalent of 4 days of activity to gain the starter award. For more information look here: https://www.johnmuirtrust.org/john-muir-award

There will be a maximum of 16 children on each session.

Meet down the hill on Radford Street on the left as the trees start, at the big boulders next to the garden centre.

Please ensure children wear appropriate clothing for the event - it gets muddy down there!


FAQs

What age range is this activity suitable for?

The John Muir Award is for children aged 7+. Younger children aged 5+ are able to come along – they just don’t get the qualification.

I have very young children, can they come?

If the child is under 5, they can come, but a parent will need to come along as well, we wouldn’t charge for that parent.

Can parents stay for the activity?

Yes! The can do the John Muir Award as well, but would need to book on and pay. If they are just accompanying children there is no charge for them.

What do children need to bring?

Clothes appropriate to the weather – it can get quite muddy there even in summer. A change of clothes is a good idea, especially for going home in! They can also bring a drink or snack if they want to. Bear in mind that they will need to carry this themselves. Also any medication they might need.

What if the weather is bad?

We will run in rain or shine. We have only been rained off twice in 5 years, once was for Storm Doris! We reserve the right to call off an event in the result of really bad weather and will endeavor to contact everyone on the day.

Do the staff have suitable qualifications and a Dbs check?

Yes, all staff are Dbs checked and hold a 16 hour outdoor first aid qualification. We have over five years experience of working on Kersal Dale and can deliver the John Muir Award to participants over 7.

Do you do other events in the woods?

Yes, we do regular fun activity at weekends and can also run birthday parties and a holiday club.
