At each session we will offer a variety of different activities and experiences unique to each location, from animal encounters at Applefield, forest school activities such as fire lighting, using hand tools, outdoor cookery and den building at The Aldingbourne Country Centre to exploring, crafting and fun in the park at Hotham Park. Each session is designed to engage young minds in a fun and interactive way, whilst giving children opportunities to learn new skills, meet new friends with whom you will make some long lasting childhood memories.
