Bringing Forest School to you. We work with schools & community groups to develop confidence, creativity and communication through woodland adventure.
Helping people make sense of their world and reconnecting communities with woodland through outdoor adventure.
Based in Gateshead, we run regular Forest School sessions with groups of all ages.
We can work with schools, pre-school groups, youth groups, families, young carers, single parents, gifted and talented groups, pupil referral units and voluntary organisations.
