Welcome to outdoor learning experiences, a web site which brings together outdoor learning practice and research. This site covers a range of themes from forest school , farm education, science field trips, to current debates and research about learning in the natural environment. Feel free to pick up on the strands that interest you most.
This year Open Farm Sunday will take place on June 8th, and we will be offering farm walks alongside the gardens of St. Paul’s Walden Bury, which will be open to the public for charity on the same day. So drop in for gardens, tea and cakes by the WI, and to learn more about farming.
Later in the summer, we are hosting a summer camp. Forest of Frogs summer camp brings together our experience leading outdoor learning, and the experience of Box of Frogs Theatre School run by Lou Davidson. 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.
