All of our events take place in beautiful woodland at Grammarcombe Woods, Ashcombe Estate, near Exeter and we run many different events throughout the year for families with kids of all ages. We’ve got lots of fun happening in camp during April, including our Easter Family Fun Day. We’d love to see you and your family in the woods soon…
Easter Family Fun Day
Join us in camp on Saturday 13th April 10-12 for our egg-cellent Easter Family Fun Day. There will be loads of activities for the kids including Easter craft making, marshmallow toasting over the campfire and an Easter Egg hunt. Our qualified Forest School Leaders will make sure that everyone enjoys a day of fantastic fun and adventure in the woods.
Birthday Parties – availability throughout April
Our woodland Birthday Parties take place in a secret location deep in the woodland at Grammarcombe Woods, Ashcombe Estate, Near Exeter. We’ll make our way to our camp with our Forest School Leader and Assistant, following a blindfold trail to find the secret location. Starting with a game or two to burn off some excited energy, we’ll then gather around the campfire to learn about lighting campfires without matches safely. There will be plenty of opportunity for the children to try out their den building skills and enjoy our new woodland playground and mud kitchen followed by a camouflage hiding game and marshmallow toasting over the campfire. There’s time for delicious campfire sizzling sausages in a roll (if booked), before the party ends with a Happy Birthday song for the Birthday Boy or Girl. Got an older child or have a specific idea for the party? No problem – just let us know. We run events for all ages – children, teens and adults and will adapt our party activities according to the needs and ages of the group. Make their party a really wild one!
