Wild Explorers

Every Wednesday from 1pm - 3pm families gather in the woods at our site in Toothill, Romsey for Wild Explorers, (previously known as Fun in the Forest).  

This is a group for children that are home educated, parents and children working and learning together through hands on experiences in our beautiful woodland environment. Great for team building and building confidence and self esteem, this is a child initiated group where we all play a part in your children's education.

Of course there is always something to cook on the campfire, lots of experimenting with new ideas and wild walks too.
