WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY..

  • Really well organised. Good activities suited all abilities.

  • Went in the hammock and pond dipping and I picked up tadpoles and fish eggs. When we sat out in the sun having our lunch, we can hear the birds sing and see the cows and hear them mooing.

    Childs favourite parts of the day at Woodland Adventure Club

  • After the first day my 6 year old said he wanted to go the the Woodland Adventure Club everyday for the whole holiday, so I’m guessing he liked it! The staff were also very accommodating and inclusive of my older son who has a mobility disability. A great holiday club.

  • “We had a truly wonderful day in the woods with A Touch of the Wild. It was an incredibly valuable experience for the children’s learning but also allowing them to learn in a play based way. Have already recommended you to friends and colleagues! Thank you for a fantastic day.”

  • Today I did drawing in the long grass with the grass hoppers. My friend came over to play with me and then we all gathered up an played an animal game. The first time I was a puppy, the second a monkey and the third I was a tiger. We all went back to eat to get our lunch and then we went where we where before, next to the pond where we had our lunch. And then I got loads of prickles on my feet and then we went back to the campfire
    Diary of my week, 
    Farragh Elesedy from Summer.

  • We picked possibly the wettest weekend in March for our five year old’s woodland explorer’s party, and yet Hannah’s empathy with the imagination of little people and her passion for the forest meant that spirits were not at all dampened by the weather.  Hannah’s experience in engaging children in confidence inspiring activities is abundant, and the delight on the faces of children and parents alike at the joys of toasting marshmallows on an open campfire was lovely.  Whether you take inspiration from the “Magic Faraway Tree”, “Chronicles of Narnia” or “Swallows and Amazons” a woodland explorers birthday party has some of the magic of all.

  • Thank you Hannah and Ellie for a great party today. All the boys loved it. ‘Best party ever’ I heard a few times and the time just flew by. Thank you thank you xx

  • When I did my necklace, When i was picking up flowers and making them smell nice – by rubbing them between my fingers. Pink and purple and some mint. 

    Childs favourite parts of the day – WAC

  • Knowing nothing about the outdoors, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. Learnt to trust my own instincts and the rest of the team.

  • We had a really amazing party – great to see kids doing what they should be doing – building dens/ making (controlled) fires, building bridges, scrambling over nets and playing in hammocks. Definitely recommend thank you very much.
