Using all of our 30 acre site and neighbouring woodland, children will be able to run off some steam and to learn more about the world around them, as well as picking up some cool new skills. Each day will be packed with a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities including pond dipping, habitat building, butterfly hunts, animal tracking, bat box building, den building, wild art and Bushcraft. Don’t forget to bring a packed lunch, waterproof coat, wellies and a spare set of clothes just in case.
