If you go down to the woods today…
Deep in the heart of a secret wood, not very far away…
magical outdoor adventures await (and a bit of risky play)!
Come down to Wacky Woods and see for yourself!
Hello and thanks for stopping to have a look at what we get up to in our beautiful birch wood.
Outdoor woodland games and bushcraft activites; from den building and campfire cooking to nature trails and tracking games. Our core activities are aimed at children between the ages of 4-11. We also run pre-school groups for younger children, with adult carer participation. These are great fun, offering younger children the chance to discover the awe, wonder and fun of playing in a wood.
Discover the natural environment with outdoor play and arts and crafts
And if that’s not enough how about toasting marshmallows and playing on the Wacky Woods Play Trail?
Our aims at Wacky Woods are to provide a fun, challenging but safe outdoor environment where creative play and learning can take place naturally. Our ethos is based around forest school principles of self initiated play and learning, scaffolded by the many fun woodland activities we offer. We take children’s play very seriously, here…so we support all children in their play, and if there is something specific they want to try: from whittling, to constructing, to cooking, then we will provide the support and encouragement for them to have a go, in a meaningful, fun and practical way…equipping them with some useful lifelong skills along the way….even if they don’t know they are learning!
Woodland adventures all year long: whatever the weather.
Come rain, come shine, the woods are alive with adventure in spring, summer, autumn and winter!
