Children’s Parties

Our Forest School parties offer a children’s party with a difference, as they engage children whilst keeping them entertained. Our Forest School site offers a fun, safe location for children to explore the great outdoors and become at one with nature.  All parties are led by specially trained Forest School leaders who will take all the hassle out of party planning.

The Forest School parties are aimed at children between 5 and 12 years old with the choice of seven different themes to suit your children’s interests. From messy makers, nature explorers, imaginative thinkers and adventurous builders, there is something to suit all tastes.  Choose from one of our seven themes below.

When the fun and games are finished, party goers come back to base camp to end their day with hot chocolate and marshmallows by the campfire.
