Wrekin Forest School

Forest Birthday Parties & Celebrations

There’s no better place to celebrate your special occasion. We combine a unique opportunity for children, young people and the young at heart to go wild, explore the great outdoors, have fun, enhance old skills and learn new ones. Activities galore, no choosing, they are all on offer unless age dependent.

We like to party whatever the weather, but high winds do stop us, we will always offer you an alternative. There’s plenty of shelter, so don’t worry about rain, not much stops forest school fun! Don’t forget to bring your wellies, wear old clothes & waterproofs and expect to get muddy!

Activities can include:

No advanced choices required, no extra fee for activities.

We are child led, they can choose what fun they have on the day!
