Young Adventurers Club

Every Saturday: 10am

1h45mins long

Explore a world without walls – fun and adventure for children at Birch. Remember the summers spent climbing trees, making mud pies and special ‘perfumes’ from rain water and petals? Returning home smeared with grass stains, sun kissed faces, tired, with so many adventures to tell of. We help create the same fond memories for your children at Birch, fresh air, adventure and games limited only by their imagination, while under the guidance of our resident nature enthusiasts and educators from Be Free Forest School.

Every session is different, but as a general rule we will introduce friends through a game, a nature connection activity, and then dedicate time to ‘creative play’ in the woods, guided by our team. ‘Creative play’ often includes den building, making potions in the mud kitchen, looking for bugs, but can also include using tools to make a flag, or foraging, the children take the lead and the team facilitate. We always have a mesmerising camp fire, and include some mindful ‘noticing’ exercises in the woods.

Parents with unaccompanied children (over 5) must complete the parent permission form at least 30 mins before a session, here’s a link so you can be organised, drop off and get your class/cocktail on time: REGISTRATION FORM

10am session:

Suitable for little adventurers aged 2-7 and their parent(s). Children 5 and over may come unaccompanied, please complete the registration form above.

A family adventure! Tailored for our youngest members of Birch community (ages 2-7), we will share a story or game to springboard into play. Play will be focused on sensory experiences (taste, touch, smell, sound, sight) and nature connection.

Every week’s theme is different, upcoming examples include Spring Equinox, Rabbits, Birds, Tree Spirits and Wild Medicine Potion Making.  Free choice is encouraged during ‘free play’ and includes hammocks to chill, nature craft, a stocked mud kitchen, balance beams, tree swings and den building. We always finish with a cheery song of gratitude for nature and wave you off feeling full of the joys of Spring.

Come dressed for the Spring weather, temperatures are always lower in the forest, so bring layers, a sun hat if it’s bright, good jackets are a must for happy wild ones and only ever closed-toed shoes please. We have outdoor shelters and an indoor room which we have on standby for a session if the weather is very windy. If forced indoors, we offer hands on environmental education activities and nature craft.
