Led by experienced forest school leaders, you'll learn forest skills and try activities like den building, wild art and campfire cooking.

Thursday 2 August: Have a go at some wool weaving using hazel and wool to make hanging decoration. Then collect around the camp fire to make herby bread.

Thursday 9 August: Practise your wood skills and saw a wooden disc to decorate to make a badge. After grab some bread and tomatoes to make some toms on toast over the camp fire.

Thursday 16 August: Using sticks from Killerton create your stick figure. Today's camp fire cooking you'll be making forest doughnuts.

Thursday 23 August: Create a lasting memory with a memory stick before toasting smores' on the camp fire.

Thursday 30 August: Waking from a good dream is always hard, but keep them close by using willow and hazel to make a dreamcatcher. You'll definitely want to be awake after though as you'll be making purple pancakes.
