Location: Young Wood
Cost: £10 per family up to 2 adults and 2 children; £2 per sibling or additional adult after that

(Tickets are per family group. Please respect this - if you are more than one family group please buy more than one ticket).
A family day in the woods to play, wild walk through the forest, campfire, games and some making. The mud kitchen and wild play space will be open of course. Our focus is on helping families to be confident to play outside with your children - so come with curious minds and we will help you learn. We encourage parents to observe their children in a safe space, and see how you can facilitate your child - which may mean leaving them to get on with it.
We'll provide hot water and a cuppa for grown-ups. Please bring packed lunches. Wear old clothes, boots and bring a change of clothes if your child likes to get very muddy or the weather is wet.
What we do is based on the ethos of Forest School. Regular time in the woods, where the participants are in charge of their own experiences and learning. We encourage you to play out often, not just with us, and explore the wild that this land can offer us. The more you do, the more you will feel at home and build the experience that enables you and your children to play freely.
We provide a FREE BUS from three pickup points in Taunton to help families with no transport and to help us to minimise environmental impacts. Please book seats on the form (seats are limited).
Pick up points are:
Priorswood Shops - in the car park
Brewers Fayre - Massingham Rd entrance
Roman Road - bus stop opposite Acorns Children's Centre
Forest School is about regular sessions in the woods, where the participants are in charge of their own experience and learning. The more often you come the more you will feel at home and build the experience that enables you and your children to play freely.
