Where is the Kids adVentures Forest School?
Our Forest School is based from our garden centre – Garden Needs where we have a dedicated and secure, fenced site at the bottom of the garden. This is where we hold the majority of our holiday club sessions. Kersal dale is located directly behind our centre and we take groups out into the woods. When we are in the Dale we work on a 1:6 ratio.
See the map at the bottom of this page.
What facilities have you got on site?
We aim to be outdoors as much as possible and have a fantastic large bell tent on site complete with a stove which we use as a cosy area when we need a rest and as a craft area. We also have access on site to buildings and a kitchen where we have breakfast and tea and which we can use should the weather prevent us from being outside all day.
Is food provided?
All children need to bring a packed lunch with them. Snacks are provided throughout the day and, we provide tea. Children on a short day (9.30am – 4.30pm) are given a morning snack and a teatime snack. Children on a long day (7.30am – 6pm) also have breakfast.
Food is eaten around the fire and we cook hot snacks on the fire as an activity regularly.
