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.

HADLEY WOOD: We meet on Hadley Common  where we will escort your children to our woodland location in Hadley Wood.

 

FORTY HALL FARM: Children will be collected from the farm shop  gate and will be escorted down to our magical private woodland.

 

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.  

 

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 wear plenty of layers to keep them warm. Put them in boots with 2 pairs of socks & waterproof trousers & coats in case of muddy puddles & streams.

 

-Bring SPARE  "everything"  CLOTHES in a carrier bag

include extra socks and chuck in some trainers!  

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

 

-Please bring a DRINK, LUNCH & SNACKS 
We won't be sharing my lunch with anyone with all the energy we'll be using to keep everyone entertained!  It's important children have some extra snacks as they'll be extra hungry throughout the day from all the excitement! We do provide a hot drink and the occasional biscuit or fruit but that's about it!

 

Optional: 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!
