Public Forest School Sessions   2024 FB image

Here at The Jungle we operate on a 200-acre mass of land consisting of fields, forests, trees, hills, rivers, streams, ponds and various plant and animal species.

We are literally surrounded by some of the very best nature has to offer.

Over the past few years we have developed our very own Forest School where we provide an outdoor learning platform based in our very own enchanting woodlands.

Driven by the scientifically proven biological and psychological benefits of being surrounded in nature, our highly skilled and Level 3 accredited Forest School leaders deliver specialised Forest School sessions.

Our team is made up of educational professionals with over 45 combined years of teaching experience so the sessions are aimed at the specific age group in question. Our goal is to provide a good foundation of knowledge on our physical and natural environment, bring awareness to the importance of being in nature and most of all to have fun while doing it!

Tuesday 6th to Wednesday 7th August

£50 for all 2 days (includes snack & lunch)

Suitable for ages 4-12

3.5 hour sessions each day: 10am – 1:30pm

One adult per child is welcome to join free of charge, but it is not essential that they are present.

(This is a progressive programme with each day building on the knowledge of the previous session so your child is committing to both days)
