Willow's Forest Camps
A message from the team....
We started our journey in the back of a beer garden, of all places and we had no idea back in 2013 how popular we would be and for that we are grateful! We started Toddler Classes and we soon knew that we had created a brand that may children, parents and schools enjoyed. We didn't really have a plan to do anything more than term time classes but as our children grew, we had many parents ask us to continue the Willow theme through their children's lives. So, as our team (a group of mums) expanded we started to do a few camps combined with our term time classes. We never set out to be a holiday camp and its something that we stumbled across but have only run a maximum of 14 across the entire year.
Our team are a mixture of ages but many are older and we as a team feel happy in running term time classes whilst we work through this pandemic, with hopefully a brighter outcome soon. We don't feel our camps would be the same at the moment and we just don't want to risk the dangers of one of the children or staff testing positive, for the sake of a couple of camps. Our team have never been so busy with all the term time classes and they deserve a well earnt break. When we feel the time is right and we can deliver forest camps, how the children remember, we will consider coming back but at the moment we feel it would be a mistake and we hope you understand.
We miss all the children so much and we hope to them again very soon
During the school holidays we offer a safe and fun outdoor experience for children aged 4 years to 11 years, in all weathers and all year round. We were founded in 2013 and our popular holiday camps run from Ottershaw and Sutton Green near Guildford, SURREY.
There is something for every child to enjoy whether it be building dens, going on scavenger hunts, identifying bugs, using fire steels, making dream catchers, using hand tools, whittling sticks or singing and story reading whilst toasting marshmallows over a camp fire.
The children learn about nature by making bug hotels and habitats for our wildlife including our resident fox "Willow." Forest School is child led, however we do encourage the children to step outside their comfort zone and have a go at activities available to them. Our aim is for the children to learn through having fun, build their self esteem, learn some life long skills and have wonderful childhood memories.
Please kindly read our T&C's before booking. We are not like other camps and we have our own T&C's which reflect this. We offer a unique experience and therefore we run very differently. A huge amount of time is devoted behind the scenes co-ordinating all the activities and sourcing them, so this is why we have little flexibility on bookings once we are in the 21 day period, so please be sure you want to book with us. Thanks very much.
