Kid's Forest Fridays
Nature Education Group
Forest Fridays is an adventurous and friendly group aimed at children between the ages of 6 and 11years old. Sessions are run within the glorious grounds of Wildwood Escot with the group’s home base being set up in one of our wooded areas.
On a Friday morning we gather in the woods before getting stuck into a session packed with activities focused around exploring, cooking, eco crafts, games, music and stories. Led by an Outdoor Education Instructor, children are encouraged to engage with the natural world around them and are given the opportunity to develop practical life skills and build emotional resilience along the way.
Whilst the children get stuck in (the mud most likely) there will be space for the grown-ups to make a cuppa and enjoy a chat with some like-minded parents, grandparents, carers etc.
Sessions will run in blocks, usually between five and seven weeks depending on length of the term, and cost £25 per session. To allow for consistency and progression we only take bookings for full or half termly blocks of sessions and cannot offer single sessions.
Our current sessions are on a Fridays 10am–2:30pm, during school term times only.
Please note that children must remain the responsibility of their accompanying adult throughout the sessions to ensure the safety of all children. These sessions are not drop off sessions.
