It’s time to get kids off the screens and into our Forest School these school holidays! Our Forest School teaches children essential bush survival and bushcraft skills through hands on learning and nature based activities that are fun, engaging and promote self esteem, confidence, build resilience and most importantly encourage them to move and strengthen their bodies and connect with nature in a deep and meaningful way.
Located at Yan Yean Reservoir in Yan Yean, only a few mins from Doreen and 32km north of Melbourne’s CBD.
Each Forest School holiday program is different so no two will be alike. During this school holiday Forest School workshop, the children will head down to the wetlands and do some ponding activities, as well as make boats by the water to float and sail! 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!
Our forest school aims to inspire creativity, a natural curiosity and enriching sensory play experience while following your child’s interests at all times.
The forest school workshop is led by Adam.
Adam is an experienced Forest School Leader who has a background in Outdoor Education and a keen interest in bush survival and bushcraft skills.
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.
