Wild at Goodheart Half Term Sessions

Looking for ways to keep the kids busy during half term?

We’ve got just the thing! Our brand-new Wild at Goodheart Sessions are now available to book during the autumn half-term at our farm animal sanctuary based in Worcestershire.

What's included

These hands-on and engaging sessions encourage children to spend more time outdoors, learn about the natural world, and, of course – have fun! Suitable for children aged 5 to 11 years.

Your child will get the chance to:

  • Gain new skills such as knot tying, using tools safely, den and rope swing building, making fires, plant-based campfire cooking, growing your own veg, and much more.
  • Explore our beautiful sanctuary site, go wildlife spotting and learn all about biodiversity and ecology.
  • Meet our rescued farm animals and learn more about their care.
  • Make new friends and gain confidence with our child-centred approach to learning.

If you have any questions prior to booking, feel free to email our Education Manager Kath at kath@goodheart.org.uk
