Forest School Session
9:30 am - 3:00 pm
It’s time to get kids off the screens and into our Bush Kids workshop these school holidays. They’ll learn life skills and how to use real tools while making friends and building confidence in the outdoors.
Join us at Westerfolds Park in Templestowe for a full day of adventure, discovery, learning and exploring in nature. This hands-on workshop will teach children how to make their very own bow and arrow to take home.
By giving children small achievable tasks to complete, they learn to become more independent while developing self-esteem and confidence. By attending our forest school programs, children learn to assess risk and make sensible and informed decisions about how to deal with unfamiliar and unpredictable situations. The children will work both independently and as a team and take these skills home with them so they can use anytime in the bush.
Located at Westerfolds Park, this workshop is run by Adam. Adam is the founder of Eco Explorers and has been delivering bush programs to families for over five years. He spent his childhood living and camping in the bush; climbing mountains, exploring rivers, learning to fish, track, make fires and survive. Adam now hopes to share his childhood & adult experiences with the next generation to inspire a deep connection with nature. He is a forest school leader and has a background in Outdoor Education.
