Outdoor Learning Experiences supports learning and engagement with the natural environment for all ages. Activities take place throughout the year, and include farm visits, forest school, outdoor science classes, and art in the woods.

This summer we are offering a new summer camp: Forest of Frogs summer camp brings together our experience leading outdoor learning and theatre schools. We will be combining elements of each to provide an interesting but unique summer camp experience which will include forest school activities, drama workshops, and nature art and craft. Children will enjoy the grade 1 listed gardens of St. Paul’s Walden Bury which provides a natural environment in which to be inspired to write plays, create props using natural materials, and engage in games and activities which allow them to explore and develop their understanding of nature. Orienteering, camp fires, music, drama, art and craft.. Opportunities abound for fun and inspiration!
The camp will be taking place in August. Book for Aug 12th-15th, and / or August 19th-22nd. The camp is open to children aged 6-12, and will run from 10 am- 4 pm, with breakfast and aftercare available if you need to stretch the day from 9 am – 5 pm. The cost is £160 for 4 days, but those booking before June 30th can receive an early bird discount to reduce the cost to £140 for 4 days.

All of our farm visits and forest school activities are run by a trained leader (CEVAS and Forest School level 3 qualified), and the farm meets appropriate health and safety guidelines for hosting visits from school children. We offer pre-visits to teachers, during which we discuss specific learning needs to integrate the field trip with the classroom. We provide guidance on preparing to come to the farm, and assistance in preparing risk assessments.

We are 30 miles from London, close to Stevenage, St. Alban’s, Luton, Hitchin, Harpenden, Welwyn and Hatfield. We can offer a range of activities throughout the seasons, which can be tailored to the visitors’ needs.
