Looking for ways to keep the kids busy during the school summer holidays?

We’ve got just the thing! Our brand-new Forest Schools Summer Holiday Club is launching this July and will run every Wednesday up until September at our farm animal sanctuary based in Worcestershire.

Suitable for children aged 8 to 12, these fun and engaging sessions encourage children to spend more time outdoors, learn about the natural world, and, of course – have fun!

Your child will get the chance to:

  • Explore our beautiful sanctuary site, making forest art, wildlife spotting and lots more fun activities!

  • Gather new skills such as growing fruit and vegetables, using garden tools, building a campfire and cooking outdoors.
  • Make new friends and gain confidence
