We offer After School Club sessions for children aged 4-11 years old.
These two hour sessions would run on every Wednesday and Thursday afternoon during school terms from 15.30pm to 17.45pm.
This a great opportunity for your children to connect and engage with nature through a variety of outdoor learning experiences including tree climbing, den building, mini beast hunting and exploring, fire-making and cooking.

Research shows that working together outdoors in a natural environment is beneficial to a sense of well-being, promotes self-confidence and self-esteem, and encourages the promotion of good communication and social skills.
Get your children to experience and embrace the outdoors and natural world.
Don't forget muddy!
