About the sessions

Want to celebrate in the woods? Forest Elder parties are a little bit special! What to expect: As with all Forest Elder sessions, you can expect the usual child-led activities will be available, like hammocks, slack-line, mud kitchen and book corner. Parties include a mix of further activities that can be themed to your little one’s interests - some ideas are below! Or you can simply choose 3 or 4 activities that you know your little one will love from the attached list. This makes no party the same and a lovely blend of opportunities for all the children (and important grown ups of course!) to enjoy. Stone Age Fire lighting Den building Bows and Arrows Games like man, mammoth, mouse Fairies Fairy houses/clay fairies Flower potion kitchen themed mud kitchen Dream catchers/Wand making Nature art Nature Explorer Bug hunting and identification Animal track casting Nature notebook making Navigation skills/bug house making Pirates Treasure hunt and map making Mini raft building Obstacle course/walk the plank Feed the shark bean bag throw Forest Elder parties can be designed for any age 2+, run for 2 hours (10.30-12.30 or 1.30-3.30) on selected Saturdays and Sundays and include: Name nature medal A choice of: hot chocolate or warm squash for everyone; marshmallows or s’mores or fruit pot round the campfire; information sheet/consent form for you to send to your guests Cost: £10 per child, minimum of 10. IMPORTANT: In order to keep everyone safe, I ask that enough parents remain to ensure a minimum 1:6 ratio of adults to children. If you would like your party to be ‘drop and go’, with notice I can provide additional forest school trained, DBS checked staff at an additional cost for their time. A deposit of £30 holds your date (discounted against cost of party), with payment due the Thursday prior to the event at the latest please. Extras: Parties can also include a Campfire lunch of hot dogs (real sausages or American hot dogs) in buns with ketchup (£2.00/child) Roast banana with chocolate and marshmallows cooked on the fire (£1/child) Crumpets or hot cross buns toasted on the fire (£1/child) Please get in touch using the booking request form here and I'll be in touch to confirm your date, numbers and activities.

Cancellation Policy

Forest School courses: 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, 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, or my inability to run the day due to illness, 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 not 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. Forest School parties: Party dates can be changed up to 1 full week prior to the event. 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 your event to another safe location, agreed with the party booker. If I do need to cancel the day due to weather I will offer an alternative date for the event to go ahead. In the event of my inability to run the event due to illness, I will endeavour to provide another fully qualified forest school leader to do so, to your agreed theme/activities at Forest Elder or nearby site. In the event that I cannot do this, I will offer you an alternative date or full refund.
