Holiday Bushcraft Groups

We run holiday bushcraft groups for children aged 6-14

Our Forest School supports children to connect with nature, manage their own risks, lead their own adventures and exploration of the outdoors and build relationships with a small community of friends and experienced practitioners.

Activities will include, fire lighting, foraging, using tools, cooking on campfires, wildlife discovery and so much more...

 

We'll provide a fire-cooked lunch for all our children. Forest School lunches include foods like stews and breads, pizzas, vegetable pancakes, roasted vegetables/potatoes and sometimes cake! All vegetarian and vegan/gluten free on request.

After School Club 

For Children ages 6-14 (Restarts in March 2021)

A little Wild...Under 6s

We run magical sessions for under 6s and their parents/carers in South Gosforth Dene (near the Millstone Inn) supporting children to follow their curiosity, to learn through play and exploration, to feel at home and relaxed in nature, growing in confidence and resilience with their Forest School family. Each week we enjoy treats on the campfire, make nature crafts to take home and enjoy free play, games and stories with hammocks, muddy play, natural paints, woodland music and songs.

What Our Customer's Say 

"I would just like to thank you for the fantastic experiences you have provided for 'J' at Forest School.  He has loved every minute of it and the best feedback I can give you is that when he's woken up on the last 3 Thursday mornings he has jumped out of bed and shouted 'Yay Forest School. It's great for him to have the chance to play with so many different age children and work co-operatively with them."

"Thanks again fir a wonderful forest school session. "R" got so much out of it and can’t wait for the next one."

"She was showing me at the weekend the area in the dene where forest school is, and has been telling us how she tried wild garlic last time and how tasty it was. We picked some and made wild garlic pesto, which she ate all up - the first time in years I’ve persuaded her to eat anything green!"
