WildTribe holiday club

Friday 24th July, Friday August 14th and Friday August 21st – 8.30am – 5.30pm.

We’re delighted to be able to offer three dates during the summer holidays for our outdoor holiday club with plenty of fresh air and space for social distancing.

WildTribe is for children aged 5 years old and over and is full of fun, adventure and fresh air. From bushcraft to arts and crafts to learning about wildlife, this club will suit budding Kate Humbles’ and Bear Grylls’ – in fact all children who love getting outdoors, learning about nature and having fun in the woods.

Young Foresters


First Saturday of every month from 10.30am until 12.30pm.

May sees the launch of our new volunteering and bushcraft club for young people aged 12-18. Our Young Foresters will have many adventures in the Forest as well as taking part in a number of forestry and conversation tasks. The young people who take part will benefit from spending time outdoors: improve their physical and mental health, forge new friendships and gain valuable work experience.

Mini Foresters


First Saturday of every month, 2pm until 4pm.

Our regular club for families with children aged 4-11. Every month sees a new adventure for the mini foresters as they learn about wildlife, try a bit of bushcraft, get creative with craft activities and learn how to help the wildlife in the forest.


  • August – Dragonflies

    How many dragonflies can we find? What other wildlife is living in or around the pond?

  • September – Reptiles

    Discover the habitat at Coughton Park and find out why it is so good for reptiles. Check the reptile mats and see what you can find.

  • October – Tree trail

    How many types of tree are growing at Middle Spernal? Look for the leaves and seeds to help you learn about the trees of the Heart of England Forest.

  • November – Bonfire banquet

    Cook up an autumn feast on the campfire and make some natural fireworks that won’t scare the wildlife.
