Weekly toddler group, holiday adventure club and woodland parties
A weekly group for under 5’s and their parents / grandparents / carers.
Families and children were at the heart from the beginning of EcoWild and this is our longest running group: a toddler-paced fun adventure of the elements and senses! Fires, dens, games, songs, crafts and snacks. Spot deer tracks or badger fur, make something beautiful, follow the seasons, climb, balance and splash!
Day / Time: Weekly on Friday mornings in term time (B&NES)
Cost: £8 (full price) / £5 (low cost) for an adult plus child
“We loved making the fire, having a hot drink, singing and craft activities. The leaders made us feel so welcome and had a really gentle way with the children while also being inspirational.”

After pausing by the fire for the s’mores and a hot chocolate, we’ll take part in an activity: natural ink painting, a bug hunt, making magic wands, den building or similar, tailored to the child’s interest.
Day / Time: Saturdays and Sundays, 2 hours between 10am and 4pm
