During this three day camp we will focus on how to make and care for fire safely as well as learning some fun outdoor cooking skills. Participants will be given the opportunity to use flint and steel to make a fire. We will use a Kelly Kettle to heat water for hot chocolate. Once learners have become familiar with all our fire rules and precautions we will light and fire on which we cook some familiar and some less familiar yummies.  All the other aspects of forest school will also be available to participants.

As we will be sharing food it is of the utmost importance that you share with us any food allergies, intolerances or dietary requirements.

We strive to be all inclusive. If you have any uncertainties about forest school being right or suitable for your child please contact us and we will be happy to discuss any measures we can put in place to include your child.

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.

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.
