What is Forest School?

Forest School is an inspirational process that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.

Woodland Working Parties

Charlotte’s Wood may be small but it still needs a bit of TLC from time to time.  When it does, we run a Woodland Working Party to help out with simple tasks such as pruning, pathway and hedgerow maintenance. A great way of keeping fit, meeting other people and connecting with the environment!

Woodland Well-being

These sessions are aimed at adults who would like to spend more time outdoors, meeting other people, learning new skills (or re-discovering ones you thought you’d forgotten!) and re-connecting with nature.  Time to reflect, cook around the campfire and share woodland crafts…

Professional Development and Team Building Days

At Charlotte’s Wood we can introduce Forest School to your staff through a Forest School Experience Day, a team building day or a well being session. What better way to start the year than a day spent crafting, cooking and chatting around the campfire?

Nordic Walking

In partnership with ‘Coastal Leisure Learning’, each term Charlotte runs an 8 week ‘Learn to Nordic Walk’ programme.  4 weeks are spent learning the technique at Charlotte’s Wood and then 4 weeks are spent practising at various coastal and countryside locations around the county.
