Participants will explore and experience the natural world through practical activities using the outdoors to promote cooperation, confidence, independence and self-esteem, includes the use of team-building games, archery, low ropes course & the obstacle course racing.

What can you do at home?

- making seed bombs….clay, compost, wildflower seeds, mix this seeds and compost and then wrap it in the clay to make a round, moulded sphere, when made throw it in a wild space
- natural art…do this anywhere, anytime, make pictures on the ground using leaves, sticks, berries, conkers and cones
- den building, using sticks and leaves and a good tree with a V shaped lower branch, woodland spaces are ideal for this
- mud kitchen, every garden needs a mud kitchen
