Our Forest School Holiday Clubs

Our popular Ofsted registered holiday club runs at Whistlewood Common near Melbourne in the beautiful South Derbyshire countryside. Aimed at children of school age (5-11) our sessions run on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays  throughout the school holidays.

We are also trialling a limited number of  sessions at Elvaston Castle Country Park

Led by qualified Forest School leaders our holiday clubs provide lots of fun to keep children entertained during school holidays.  Activities include shelter building, pond dipping, bug hunting, nature crafts, fire-lighting and much more. Sessions are planned to be child led so we often find ourselves doing something unexpected! We offer two session times to suit the needs of families which are either  9am - 3pm at a cost of £34 per child or 8.30am - 4pm at £44. See below for details of our upcoming sessions.
