We Have fun In NatureAt Jolly Foresters, our activities focus on fun and the process of learning rather than the end product.
From climbing trees to toasting marshmallows, we encourage our Jolly Foresters to be in and engage with the great outdoors. Mud puddles, dirty feet, and happy hearts are what we’re all about
What to expectIt is our aim to bring a love of the outdoors to all children who attend from 18 months – 11 years. We offer different clubs and sessions to suit your child’s age. As nature evolves so do our activities, no two days are the same at Jolly Foresters but you can expect your children to meet new friends and partake in activities and adventures such as:
– bush arts and crafts,
– outdoor cooking in our mud kitchen,
– nature based potion mixing,
– climbing trees in the woods,
– peeling and whittling
– Picnics in the forest

In the summer months they should still bring water proof clothing in but most importantly they should be wearing long sleeves and trousers as we encourage tree climbing, playing in the mud and walking through dense woodland at times.
