Treetots

Join us at our beautiful woodland camp, Robin’s Nest, for a morning of play and adventure.  Explore our woodland with your little one, try some natural crafts, maybe go on a bug hunt, a stream walk or go puddle jumping – the possibilities are endless!  Our sessions normally end with snack time and songs or stories around the campfire.

What might our session include?

  • Exploring the woodland & grassland areas
  • Fire lighting & campfire cooking
  • Pond dipping & stream walks
  • Puddle jumping
  • Playing in the mud kitchen
  • Bug & wildlife spotting
  • Building with natural building blocks
  • Playing in music corner
  • Natural crafts & bark rubbings
  • Ice play
  • Making bird feeders and houses

Sessions will go ahead in almost all weathers, so please come prepared with appropriate clothing.  We have a shelter and fire pit, so if the weather is inclement there are plenty of activities we can do under the shelter. The group is designed for parents and children together and children must be accompanied for the whole session.
