What’s On: October


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 October, including our new Tuesday session of Wild Tots and the Halloween family Fun Day! We’d love to see you and your family in the woods soon…


Halloween Family Fun Day – Saturday 27th October 10-12


Come and have a fang-tastic time in the woods with us. We’ve got loads of spook-tacular games planned including a broomstick making, apple bobbing, scary face painting and lots more besides. Cook up a trick (not a treat) in our mud kitchen and make like a bat and hang around in our new woodland playground. We will be serving a witches brew round the campfire and enjoying marshmallow treats.

Tickets just £6 per person (adult or child over 18 months, babies free with older sibling). Price includes refreshments (hot chocolate/hot drinks). Book now!

October birthday parties are filling up fast! 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!
