Big Kids Forest School 2020

2020 is on the way and we are getting organised! Join us for a Saturday Forest school/bushcraft session aimed at children aged 6 and over. We have two dates currently available. Join us for one or both!

Saturday 18th of January 1-2.30pm

Saturday 15th of February 1-2.30pm

Saturday 21st of March 1-2.30pm

Places for April will be available from mid-February 2020


We started running these sessions in September 2019 and they have proved very popular.  The sessions have continued to run each month and tend to sell out.  The sessions will get children outdoors and engaging with nature. Sessions will include a mix of:

  • Fire lighting and campfire cooking
  • Bushcrafts – using tools, knives, drills and saws to create
  • Nature based arts and crafts

Each session will have a particular focus.  You are welcome to attend a session as a one-off or come as often as you’d like.

All sessions include hot chocolate and marshmallows (or suitable alternatives) that the children will make on the open fire or using the Kelly Kettle.

The sessions will take a Forest School approach – Forest school is more than just sessions outdoors. It is a specialised approach that is learner-centred and aims to promote the holistic development of the child. Through hands-on practical learning, Forest school fosters resilience, confidence, self-esteem, independence and creativity and encourages- children to take risks within a supportive learning environment set within nature.

The sessions are run by our forest school trained volunteer Christine. All very reasonably priced for experiences that are utterly priceless! All profit goes back into our volunteer work in maintaining and improving the park too!

Only  £6 for members and £7 for non-members.

Not a member? You can join for just £5 a year. Not only would you be helping our volunteer work in the park, but you also get a discount to all our events and 10% off in the cafe for the year. Join before booking your place – it comes straight through, so go ahead and buy a members place!

The sessions are aimed at children 6+ and they should be accompanied by an adult. No adult ticket is needed.   Your child is welcome to come with another adult who has other children at the event.  If you need to bring a younger sibling along, just let us know.  They are welcome to come but will not be able to use the resources.  If you’d like them to use resources then please buy them a ticket. They would need to remain under your strict supervision as we aim our sessions at older children.
