What happens at Holiday Club?

We aim to help your child build friendships and raise their confidence and self esteem in a friendly and welcoming environment.

Your child will be informed of our rules and boundaries.  We'll play some welcome/ teambuilding games and there will be planned activities and games throughout the day that your child can take part in if they wish.  We encourage as much child-led play as possible but we will always have planned activites to keep children engaged and make for an exciting day. 

 

Sometimes we might plan our sessions around collective interests, other times the seasons and what's happening in the woodland at the time.  Your child may join in as much or as little as they like.  We never force children to do any of our planned activities but we will make every effort to cater for their interests on the day.

 

Just some of the available activities:

  • Shelter building
  • team building/ sensory games
  • building structures- rope swings, ladders & climbing frames
  • nature arts & crafts
  • Flora & fauna identification & nature walks
  • mud kitchen
  • stories & songs
  • bushcraft skills
  • woodcraft skills
  • basic woodland management and conservation- for kids!

All bookings are made online. 

 

Places are limited and go quickly, don't delay!

What more do we need to know?

DRESS APPROPRIATELY

Holiday Club takes place in all weathers including the cold and wet. Children should bring plenty of layers to keep them warm.

 

Cold/ Winter: Put them in boots with 2 pairs of socks & waterproof trousers & coats in case of muddy puddles & streams.

 

Hot/ Summer:  Trousers and still include some warm layers. It can feel cold in the woods.  Trainers are fine, unless it's going to be wet- then wellies.  No shorts, unless you want your child to be eaten by insects or stung/ scratched by vegetation.

 

-Bring SPARE  "everything"  CLOTHES in a carrier bag

include extra socks and chuck in some extra shoes!  

You don't want us calling you to bring more clothes if you child gets cold/ wet

 

-Please bring a DRINK, LUNCH & SNACKS  (Freeze your waterbottles for a hot day)
We won't be sharing our lunch with anyone with all the energy we'll be using to keep everyone entertained!  I

t's important children have some extra snacks as they'll be extra hungry too throughout the day from all the excitement! We will currently only be providing water if children run out.  We are a NUT FREE club.

 

Cold weather Option: bring a hot flask of something they like- herbal tea or soup. Nothing like a bit of warm food if it's a cold day!
