Our Forest School Holiday Club is a great way to introduce your child to learning through adventure when away from school. Available to book for a day, a week or the entire holiday – every day is packed with forest school ideas and adventure making memories that will last a lifetime.

Each day has a different theme – it could be archery, survival skills, shelters, fire, water, bushcraft, campfire cookery, musical forest, navigation, trees and bugs – the list goes on! During the day there are news skills to be learned and mastered, from building a fire to using tools, learning to tie knots and foraging for food.

We operate in secure woodlands and within school grounds at sites throughout Greater Manchester. Every site is managed by a qualified forest school leader or senior instructor who is part of our core team at We Are Adventurers. All our team are paediatric first aid trained and experienced at delivering all aspects of the adventure programme.

Children attending our adventure forest school are split into four age-related animal themed ‘tribes’ who they stay with for the duration of the day. Each ‘tribe’ has a support leader who stays with them throughout the day.

    It’s £35 per day from 9am – 4.30pm or £150 for a full week booking (a saving of £25).
    An additional cost of £5 for early drop off (from 8am) or a late pick up (till 5.30pm) and
    £8 if you need both early and late wrap around support.

  • What should i pack for a kids holiday camp?

    A packed lunch, a water bottle, spare clothes and a hat/sun cream (where required). Please note, if your child wants to bring a pen knife with them, please make sure that their name is on it as they will be asked to hand these in at the start of the day and then can only use it in supervised tool use/rope sessions.



“A very well organised holiday club where the smaller numbers mean the kids get much more time and attention from the leaders. We booked a full week at the start of the summer holidays and managed to get a couple of last minute extra days just before the kids went back to school after they kept pestering to go back.

“The kids all came back full of stories about the activities they’ve taken part in and the friends they’ve made. We’ve already booked for this summer.”
