Each Forest School holiday program is different so no two will be alike. During this school holiday Forest School workshop, the children will learn how to safely whittle and be given guidance to complete a whittling project.  The group will also go on a bush walk exploring, discovering and learning about the plants and wildlife, learn to track, play nature connection team building games, do plenty of climbing and best of all, make some awesome new friends!

The forest school workshop is led by Adam.

Adam is the founder of Eco Explorers and has been delivering bush programs to families for over 7 years. He spent his entire childhood living and camping in the bush; climbing mountains, exploring rivers, learning to fish, track, make fires and to survive. He is also a forest school leader and has a background in Outdoor Education.

Forest school Melbourne is an all-weather outdoor program so you need to make sure you bring appropriate weather protection and clothing. Our program will only be cancelled in the event of an extreme weather warning; fire, storm, high temperatures and strong wind.

Ages: 6-12 years
