About the event

Our Wild and Wonderful day camps are all about getting children out in nature; playing, exploring, being hands on, doing risky play and having fun! 

We follow the children's interests and although we have plenty of activities, crafts and games 'up our sleeves' we do not arrive with a set plan of an activity that every child will do. Instead we tailor each day camp to what the children that day want and need, understanding that not all of the children will want to do the same thing. They are encouraged to come up with games and activities using their own imagination and interests and we have an abundance of fabulous natural resources in the woodland teamed with some popular other items such as the hammocks, swing, tools, craft materials etc. 

Examples of previous activities;

Making bow and arrows

Using tools to make boats, necklaces, medals, mallet, swords, animals... the list goes on!

Den building and knot tying

Fire building and fire safety

Tree climbing and slacklining

Playing in the mud kitchen, mud sliding, bog making and other mud fun!

Campfire cooking (damper bread, marshmallow smores, pancakes, drop scones!)

Nature crafts (weaving, jewellery making, flower/leaf crafts. clay, hobby horses and other projects)

Outdoor yoga

Natural clay making

Opportunities for mindfulness

Making habitats or food for living things

Activities for fostering nature connection

Wildlife spotting and much more

Please note, the time on the event information (9:30-4pm) is the time for the full day camp. We have different time slots available depending on the age of your child. Please make sure you book the correct ticket for the age of your child; 

For children aged 5 to 9 years old - 9:30am-4:00pm and cost £35. 

For children aged 3-5 year olds* -  9:30-1:30pm which cost £ 25. 

*If you have one child under 5 and one over 5 but want them both to attend a half day, please get in touch to discuss this possibility as there are limited morning spaces available. 

 We will be releasing the tickets in two lots. 1st half of the spaces in March. 2nd half of the spaces in April.  

Kit List

The sessions are 100% outdoors, rain or shine! We have tarpaulins we put up and have some natural shelter however the children must be dressed appropriately so are ready for all weathers! There is no such thing as bad weather... just bad clothing!

The children must bring:

Waterproof trousers and jacket/suit

Wellingtons or waterproof shoes

Packed lunch with a water bottle (we provide snacks, a hot drink and something the children make on the fire, we do not provide lunch).

Complete change of clothes in a small backpack (long sleeved/legs to protect from bites, stings etc and two pairs of socks!) 

It is always colder in the woods than the forecast temperature due to the natural shade from the trees so children must bring layers. This also helps protect them from stings, mosquito/tick bites and grazes etc.

Booking 

Book online and ensure you have filled out a registration form for your child. Once you have booked, you will be sent some additional information, including a full kit list, directions to the site and some information for your child. 

We have sibling discounts (10%) on individual camp bookings, some multi booking discount tickets or individual camp tickets.

Cancellations

In the event of very high winds or stormy weather, the session may need to be cancelled as it is not safe to carry out sessions in these conditions. You will be contacted as soon as possible to let you know and you will be refunded. 

Unfortunately due to planning and staffing requirements once you have bought your ticket, is it non refundable/exchangeable. Thank you for your understanding.
