Places are strictly limited and MUST be booked in advance.

 Sessions over the next few months will include a mix of:

  • Fire lighting and campfire cooking
  • Bushcrafts – using tools, knives, drills and saws to create
  • Nature based arts and crafts

All sessions include hot chocolate and marshmallows (or suitable alternatives) that the children will make on the open fire or using the Kelly Kettle.

You are welcome to attend one session or come to as many as you like!

The sessions will take a Forest School approach – Forest school is more than just sessions outdoors. It is a specialised approach that is learner-centred and aims to promote the holistic development of the child. Through hands-on practical learning, Forest school fosters resilience, confidence, self-esteem, independence and creativity and encourages- children to take risks within a supportive learning environment set within nature.

The sessions are run by our forest school trained volunteer Christine. All very reasonably priced for experiences that are utterly priceless! All profit goes back into our volunteer work in maintaining and improving the park too!

The sessions are aimed at children 6+ and they should be accompanied by an adult. No adult ticket is needed.  if you have younger children who would need to come along, drop us a line.  Your child is welcome to come with another adult who has other children at the event. 

Each session is £6 for members and £7 for non-members and includes a hot drink that the children will help make!

Not a member? You can join for just £5 a year. Not only would you be helping our volunteer work in the park, but you also get a discount to all our events and 10% off in the cafe for the year. Join before booking your place – it comes straight through, so go ahead an buy a members place!
