Saturday 17th of October 2020 10am-11.30am

Our popular York Forest School for ‘Big Kids’ offer a range of bush crafts and outdoor learning suitable for 6-12 year olds. Sessions can include nature based arts and crafts, use of tools such as knives, drills and saws, fire skills and campfire cooking and much more. This events runs monthly and places must be booked in advance.

We are hoping to make use of the apples that grow in the park as part of the session and pressing them to make juice, amongst other things. There are two sessions currently with tickets available – welcome to attend one or both!

Forest School Rowntree Park York – Tickets

We started running these sessions in September 2019 and they have proved very popular.  The sessions have continued to run each month and tend to sell out.  However, do to COVID we are making the sessions smaller and taking a number of precautions to make them ‘COVID safe’.

Tickets are £7. Each ticket includes one child and one adult.

Sat 10th September Ticket – SOLD OUT

Sat 17th October Ticket – SOLD OUT

Tickets for members are usually just £6. You will be refunded the extra £1 on the day.

It’s important that numbers are controlled, therefore additional tickets must be purchased for each additional adult and child. No ticket needed for babies in arms if they stay with the parent.

In addition to your Paypal receipt, Christine will aim to send you a confirmation email and details about the event before the date. Please do check your junk box as we have had some emails go astray!
