Holiday Club 2016 – Forest Schools

This has got to be the best Holiday Club going at Highfields School, Newark!  This week and next we are joined by David Hawes and his team from Childrens’ Woodland Adventures for a fortnight of bushcraft skill learning and activities.  We have enjoyed – so far! – two active days of treasure hunts, which has included amongst other challenges: climbing through spiders webs whilst being belted with dripping wet sponges (really!), shelter building, lighting our own campfires, keeping them going and then and cooking marshmallows on them. Fantastic! All within our own beautiful woodland grounds.

Enjoy our photos and we hope the children are loving this experience, because we certainly are!
