School Holiday Club

6th August – 29th August

Give your children a real break from the classroom with our forest school holiday club! Activities and experiences to spark any imagination!
 
Douglas Tree Forest School runs a unique outdoor holiday club every school holiday for 4 to 11 year olds.
 
Our holiday clubs provide children with a wonderful outdoor experience whilst they have a break from the classroom.
 
No two days are the same, as we strive to follow children’s individual interests. Our typical day consists of snacks cooked over the fire, tool use, den building, nature crafts, tracking, team building games, mindfulness activities, insect and treasure hunts.
