family play

walkers to age 11

Our family play sessions aim to give families with school aged children or parents who work through the week, time to connect with nature and each other, in a fun and playful way.

Come and play in our vast, private woodland setting and enjoy all of our wonderful resources. As with the pre-school play sessions, there will be a provocation or an invitation to play which will be facilitated by Vikki; and Chris will be looking after our older wild ones, offering a guided activity. Perhaps we will be practicing our fire lighting skills, using real tools or creating rope swings. Everyone is welcome to join in with the facilitated part of the session but we would urge you to follow your child’s lead and do whatever motivates them in whatever way they choose.

Sessions will run as ‘pop ups’ on weekends and in school holidays and begin on Sunday 14th April with our Easter Special. Babies in slings accompanying their older siblings are free but we ask you that you book and pay for a space once they reach their first birthday. Family play sessions cost £10.00 for 2 adults and 1 child. Additional adults or children are charged at £2.50 each.

Family Play Sessions are for children up to aged 11 years old (the end of primary school). Sessions include access to our vast, private woodland site, use of all the resources and supported play by our qualified staff. Tea and coffee for adults and campfire hot chocolate for the kids (and maybe even a roasted marshmallow) will also be provided, just bring along your reusable cup and a snack for your child to enjoy.
