Easter Holiday Club at Hidden Woods
Thu April 18 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm BST
An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, repeating until Thu April 18, 2019
If your child is aged 8 or over there will be something to captivate their imagination and support their development at our holiday clubs.
For children that need to be dropped earlier or collected later, we have supervised free play in the camp from 8.30am-10am and 4pm-5.30pm. There is an additional charge of £6 per session (or part of) for this service, which can be added to your booking using our online booking system.
Outdoor learning is being increasingly recognised as playing an integral role in holistic child development. With benefits including improved language and communication skills, increased self esteem and confidence, more motivation and greater concentration to name a few. All that besides, it’s good clean, or rather not so clean, fun and has something incredible to offer every child.
As with all our activities for youngsters, holiday clubs follow the Forest School ethos of facilitating child-led learning and discovery in the outdoors. Everything we offer builds on the innate curiosity and sense of wonder that the natural environment brings out in children of all ages.
No two days are ever the same at holiday clubs. We take our lead from the interests of the children and the conditions on the day, exploring adventures like bushcraft, environmental art, woodland crafts and games, campfire cooking, journeying through the woods and of course, free play.
We enjoy taking the opportunity to pass on a range of hard skills to those eager and interested, including using tools and managing risk effectively, bushcraft and survival knowledge. Supporting the development of softer skills like cooperation, empathy, emotional intelligence and leadership are elegantly weaved throughout the sessions by our experienced leaders.
With our well-kitted-out-for-any-eventuality established camps, complete with large group shelters and fire pits, these days offer an exciting opportunity to play, learn and make new friends, whatever the weather!
