"My daughter was quite timid at the beginning of the day but she came home absolutely buzzing and full of life. I can see the Woodland Days she attended at May Half Term was a real confidence boost, she learnt new skills and really enjoyed the day, thank you!"
Parent, 2017.

"I loved making chocolate cake in oranges over the fire! It was great to make my own fire and learn new skills that I never thought I could do! Shelter building was fun too and I loved all the games."
Ollie Smith aged 8, 2017.
