We believe that people are meant to be outside, that playing and learning outdoors is good – for the people who do it and for the outdoors too. We think that everyone – adults and children – should spend more time outside, and we spend our time thinking up ways that they can do just that.
We work with a range of techniques and approaches to bring people and the outdoors together. We run:
Holiday Clubs for children aged 5-12. Our holiday clubs give children the chance to play, learn, get muddy and just be kids in a safe, nurturing but wild environment.
“Yes! Good clean (or not!) Fun. Kids shattered, messy, but bubbling with renewed enthusiasm for outdoor activities. Thank you, we will be back.”
“It was brilliant, brilliant brilliant!” Danny, 8
Bushcraft activity days for schools – who can bring a group, a class or a whole Year Group to one of our sites for a day of activities with our instructors
Outdoor learning courses for schools and teachers – designed to teach teachers how to make the most of their outdoor learning opportunities, our training gives teachers everything they need to plan, deliver and assess lessons outdoors.
Corporate training. Forest school and outdoor learning techniques provide us with the perfect tools to help companies make the most of their staff. For team building, developing interpersonal or leadership skills, communication, planning, or just a de-stress day.
