Wild Wings Forest School

Back to Activities

Wild Wings Forest School run outdoor sessions for both children and adults, giving people the opportunity to reconnect with the natural world, explore their interests and learn through hands-on experiences.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • spending time outdoors has been found to reduce stress and improve mood;
  • self-directed play in nature fuels children’s curiosity, sparks their imagination and can inspire a lifelong love of learning;
  • children are supported to participate safely, learning about risk and resilience and growing their skills and confidence.

Holiday Clubs

Wild Wings Forest School is run by two educators who are passionate about nature, mental health and play. They run holiday clubs at Harston and Newton Community Primary School for children aged between three and twelve years old.

The sessions are based around self-directed play, co-operation, exploration and supported risk-taking. Each session is different as the activities are led by what the children want to discover. They have hammocks, ropes, swings, tree dens, a mud kitchen, digging areas and a dirt mound to enjoy. There are also some adult-initiated activities where they teach the children how to use tools, how to light a fire with flint and steel, and how to cook over the fire.

Sessions take place outside no matter the weather, so it is important to wear appropriate clothing and footwear.

Visit the Wild Wings Forest School website for dates of the next holiday club and booking information.

Adult’s Forest School

Wild Wings also run Forest School activities for adults, including nature crafts, green woodworking, cooking on fire and fireside chats. These are held in various outdoor locations across South Cambridgeshire.

Details of upcoming adult activities will be shared on the website.
