Wild Explorers is FREE for lower income families in Halcon, Lambrook and Lane and Priorswood. Thanks to funding from Somerset Community Foundation we are able to offer these Forest School sessions to local families.
We encourage families to come to all the sessions so that everyone becomes familiar with the place, the routine and can make the most of what is on offer.
Each session will include:
-Circle time around the campfire at the start and end
- An explore walk through the wilder woods with games or den-building
- Crafts using natural materials
- Cooking together on the campfire
- Free play, exploring the camp area & mud kitchen
- Learning about plants and animals of the forest
We can provide waterproof coats and leggings for most ages for the session, so don't let the weather put you off!
This projects is wholly funded through Somerset Community Foundation, who have supproted our work at different times over the years. Find out more about them here

Our woodlands are home to roe deer, badgers, foxes, squirrels and other mammals. These carry ticks which can bite humans, so we recommend long trousers, proper shoes/boots and tops you can tuck in. We will provide insect replant to prevent them biting. Special attention needs to be paid to small children and in long grass/sedge.
