Summer Holiday Club

We know the problems of finding suitable child care that your children will enjoy during school holidays.  Our holiday club is suitable for children aged 7-12 years old who love the outdoors. Children are encouraged to enjoy, explore and learn from the forest through a variety of activities. There will be the opportunity to learn basic bush craft skills including fire lighting methods, fire building, cooking on fires, natural and tarpaulin shelter building, knots and tool use. They will also create forest art, crafts, go bug hunting, play forest games and much much more! The list is endless! There will also be time for free play and discovery. The children will leave having had so much fun they will be talking about it for ages.
