Our Holiday Clubs provide an inspiring and rich environment where children can play, explore and learn new skills, work with natural materials and explore the magic of natural world.
Some of the forest school activities will include den building, singing, bushcraft, cooking and storytelling around the campfire as well as whittling, woodwork, clay, weaving, felting and spinning with wool as well as groups and mindfulness games and lots more.
Mike’s Meadow provides the children with extra activities where they can also learn to identify and forage edible plants, play in the orchard among fruit trees or explore straw bale classroom.
The children have a range of activities to choose from and time for free play in an exciting, open-ended environment with a mud kitchen, water-play sandpit, playhouse and shelter.
Sessions are for children only.
