The World Outside has teamed up with

Bodenham Arboretum in 2011 to provide Forest School and outdoor activities

aimed at children and young people.

 

We will be providing Forest school activities for the under-fives, the 5 to 8 year olds and the 8 to 11 year olds and their families and in the future 11-15 year olds.

 

Forest School at Bodenham Arboretum gives children freedom to enjoy the natural world in way we would have done ourselves as children, within a safe and secure environment.

In the form of bespoke sessions and regular events, individuals, families, youth organisations, and educational establishments can learn, play, explore, and get close to nature in a fun and interactive way.

Our aim is to give children independence to make their own choices, to take risks, to be imaginative, to discover and to learn about their world
