It’s time to get kids off the screens and into our Bush Kids – Forest School these school holidays! They’ll learn life skills and how to use real tools while making friends and building confidence.
Join us for this hands-on workshop as we learn valuable bushcraft skills that our ancestors used. The kids will learn bushcraft skills such as how people made and used primitive tools. They will be required to construct, sharpen and create their own tools using natural materials such as sticks, rocks and even learn to cordage their own rope.
This forest school holiday workshop is being held at Ceres Environment Park in Melbourne’s Brunswick East and families can also enjoy a visit to the CERES organic market, cafe and the nursery while there.
This workshop is run by Adam and Ashlee.
Adam is the founder of Eco Explorers and has been delivering bush programs to families for over two years. He spent his entire childhood living and camping in the bush; climbing mountains, exploring rivers, learning to fish, track, make fires and to simplify… just ‘being’ at one in nature. Adam now hopes to share his childhood & adult experiences with the next generation to inspire a deep connection with nature. He has a background in Outdoor Education and enjoys camping, bushcraft, rock climbing, and meditation.
Ashlee is a qualified and experienced, early childhood educator who has been working as a wilderness camp leader and as a theatre puppet maker for children for nearly 10 years. She has a passion for connecting children to nature and does so through creative activities, stories and games.
The children can work both independently and as a team and take these skills home with them that can use anytime in the bush.
*Parents are required to stay and are responsible for their children at all times.
Ages: 5 – 12 years
