Autumn 2021

Our Autumn programmes are for young explorers aged between 6 and 14 years.

Through nature games, crafts and exploration children gain valuable skills and a deep connection with nature, essential for building resilience in today's busy world. The sessions are child-led, enabling passions to be discovered and explored. The leaders have a vast array of games and activities to offer, including nature ID, survival skills, crafts, with plenty of time for free play allowed.

Over the course of ten weeks children get a chance to experience time in nature, to master new skills and to discover new passions.

Programmes are run by Marc Barker and Amber Godwin, both fully qualified and experienced Forest School leaders.

NOTE: programmes are offered as ENTIRE BLOCKS, due to high demand, a growing waiting list, and increasing operation costs, we cannot accommodate a "per day" rate. Spaces are given and held for the entire programme regardless of attendance. We don't want to exclude anyone. If this causes financial strain please contact us confidentially at, to discuss a discounted rate or to pay in installments.
