Join us for a morning of fun and child led adventure in our wonderful woodland playground.

Every child can be themselves at Saplings, free to safely explore where their curiosity leads. The short walk to Beech Camp begins the adventure as old hands and new visitors alike begin the excited chatter about what might be in store.

Up the hill, through the trees and around the giant beech, brings little legs and eager hands to our main camp in all its woodland wonder.

Saplings follows the Forest School ethos where your child is empowered to lead their play and develop their unique interests along with their confidence and an appreciation of the natural world. Each week a diverse and creative range of nature based activities, crafts and games are available to enjoy as their mood takes them. There are firm favourites too that always remain; the mud kitchen, wooden xylophone, nature’s climbing frame and of course the heart of our camp, the fire.

Saplings is enjoyed year round whatever the weather, fostering a positive can do attitude to everything life may throw at us, and helping one and all appreciate the beauty and wonder to be found in every season.

Gaining confidence, learning new skills, kindling fires and friendships, all these things happen naturally for every child at Saplings at a pace that is natural and fun. It’s your weekly sanctuary where you can reconnect, recharge and enjoy your child happy at play, making magical memories of childhood to last a lifetime.
