About the sessions

These small group sessions (10 max) are for adults who want to enjoy all the benefits Forest School has to offer! Sessions provide an opportunity to learn new skills, try new activities and experiences, deepen knowledge, have fun and spend time in nature through the seasons. Or just sit round a campfire! Forest School is a learner-centred inspirational learning process that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It develops confidence, self-esteem and skills through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting. I am a huge advocate for the beneficial impact being in the outdoors can have on our mental and physical well-being. I also have a passion for sharing skills and knowledge. Sessions are friendly, relaxed and a great way to get into the right head-space for the weekend! As with all Forest Elder sessions, and in keeping with the Forest School ethos, I will always have lots of free access activities available, as well as one or two planned that I’ll show you and can help with. There’s no need to engage with all the activities, the sessions are very much yours and responsive. If there's something you want to try, just let me know! Sessions will go ahead outside in all weathers. Only if the weather is exceptionally wet (so the site is flooded), or there are high winds or thunderstorms will I cancel a session, if I can’t move it to another safe location. Please do come dressed appropriately! My sessions include a hot drink (or cold if it's super hot) and snack for everyone. Your booking form includes a section for allergies and dietary information so please do let me know anything important so I can make sure everyone is catered for! Sessions need a minimum of 6 participants to go ahead. In the event that a group is undersubscribed, I'll get in touch to talk about other possible sessions or to refund you.


Upcoming Sessions


Cancellation Policy

Forest School courses (Forest Folk, Saturday Forest Skills and Forest Adults): Sessions are booked as a course and cannot be part refunded if you are unable to attend a session. In the event that I am unable to hold a session due to illness or other unforseen circumstance requiring the whole group to be cancelled, a replacement session on an alternative date will be offered. Forest School takes place in almost all weathers, however during high winds or extreme thunderstorms it may not be safe to go ahead. On these rare occasions the session will be cancelled and unfortunately no refunds can be offered. Family Days: Forest Days will go ahead outside in all weathers. Only if the weather is exceptionally wet (so the site is flooded), or there are high winds or thunderstorms will I cancel, if I can’t move it to another safe location. If I do need to cancel the day due to weather, I will offer an alternative date, places on a subsequent family day or refund if you're not able to attend either alternative. Bookings are non refundable however wherever possible I will always try to reallocate your tickets to any waitlist running and refund you, but unfortunately I cannot guarantee this will always be possible.
