About The Woodland Adventure Club

The Woodland Adventure Club provides a range of after school and holiday clubs for children of all ages. Sessions are based on Forest School and provide a safe and stimulating outdoor experience for children.

At the Woodland Adventure Club, children have the opportunity to learn and express themselves in the way that best suits their style and personality. A range of tools, equipment and activities are provided, but children are encouraged to choose their own activities and do what they want to do and what they feel comfortable with.

We have two qualified Level 3 Forest School practitioners and a host of helpers with lots of experience working with children in schools and other environments. All staff have up to date DBS certificates and all activities are risk-assessed.

Most of all – our sessions are FUN! Kids will come away with the buzz that you can only get from spending lots of quality time outdoors, getting dirty, making stuff and simply enjoying nature and life.
