Event description

Description

Forest Camp has its roots fixed in the Forest School movement, roots which are held together in a nutritious soil filled with all the goodness and fun of an experiential education summer camp in the USA called Interlocken that our founder directed. We encourage creativity, uniqueness/acceptance and positive risk taking while asking the children to consider the values of treating themselves, each other and the natural world with fairness and kindness.

The program offers children an opportunity to play, learn about the natural world and try a variety of skills and activities ranging from nature art, junior bushcraft, outdoor skills and campfire cooking. It is all carried out in a play based fashion where children join activities as and when they like and are not ‘forced' into the program. We also create an environment where children feel like they are part of a community and each day they volunteer to do things that keep the whole experience in 'flow', these range from fire monitors (we always have warm food and drinks) to random acts of kindness. Throughout the whole program we try to foster a sense of community where people recognise that the whole is greater than it's individual parts, all of whom rely on each other to flourish.

This years Forest Camp is for children aged 8-12

Children attend each day from 9am-3.30pm.
