Event Description: Does your child love the outdoors? If so, our holiday club is perfect for them. We will provide the opportunity to learn more about the forest, develop bush craft skills - fires, shelters, using tools, knot work, woodland crafts, cooking on the fire, making rope obstacle courses, tracking, orienteering, have fun doing forest art, bug hunting, forest games and much much more. Suitable for 7-12 year olds. Refreshments and snacks provided including daily fire snacks - popcorn, marshmallows, s'mores, pizzas and more. Please bring a packed lunch. Full waterproofs and suitable footwear are essential. We do outdoor shelters and have an indoor classroom should the weather be extremely poor. We do ask children come for the 3 full consecutive days as we develop their skills over this time. Please contact us if you are unable to do this but still wish to join us on one of the days as we may be able to accomodate you.
Event Info: All Forest Explorers staff have fully enhanced DBS checks, outdoor first aid trained with an emphasis on child first aid, experienced in outdoor and survival and at least one member of staff is Forest School level 3 trained.
Our holiday club mostly takes place outdoors so outdoor clothing is required whatever the weather. Waterproof jacket, boots or wellies, long sleeved trousers and tops are essential even in hot weather due to brambles, nettles and biting insects (waterproof trousers are also recommended). Insect repellent and sun cream may be necessary.
Children do not need to be accompanied at our holiday club.
We will ask you to complete a parental consent form on the day, please arrive 10 minutes early in order to complete this.
Please meet at the education classroom which is located through the small Forest Explorers entrance gate after Delamere Outdoor Fitness. Follow the signs from Old Pale car park.
All dates for our holiday club will go ahead whatever the weather and all events are non-refundable. Sessions will only be cancelled in high winds when the Forestry Commission deem the forest unsafe and close the forest to the public, a full refund will be given should this occur. We will contact you as soon as we know should this be the case.
Parking: Dropping off and picking your children off entitles you 15 minutes free parking in order to do this.
