Samhain is a time of remembrance and transitions. Days become shorter and darker. The weather becomes wetter and colder (in Ireland perhaps not such a huge change from summer!). This is a beautiful time of year despite these changes. The world around us changes noticeably as the land changes colour and the animals prepare for hibernation. Traditionally Samhain is a time to ward off evil spirits as the veil between the worlds is believed to be thin. Let us join to celebrate Samhain.

At Forest School we focus on, building community and friendships; building confidence and resilience and nurturing nature connection. Our Core Values are introduced: We Respect and Care for Ourselves, Each other and Nature. These underpin everything we do and are used as a tool to overcome conflict.

Tools, fire and risky play are introduced when appropriate to challenge individuals. Personal risk assessment is encouraged to make decisions regarding activities, along side certain safely rules everyone must follow. These include; stay inside the boundaries; walking around tool station; kneel when approaching the fire. Group games and sharing circles are a time for community building and having each voice heard. Nature crafts, foraging and learning interesting facts about all that is nature are all wonderful ways to connect with nature and the world around us. Self-directed playgive time for choice and self-regulation.

Follow these links to find out more about Forest School and our Ethos.

One of the six principles which underpins forest school states that it is a long term process. So for this reason our 3 day camps are dubbed Forest School ‘style’ as they do not strictly follow all principles which define Forest School.
