Join Outdoor Tribe Online

We’re delighted by the positive feedback already received from subscribers to our August ‘premium content’ – “something for all the family”. 

We’ve provided a range of activities to engage with, changing week by week and month by month. Nature connection projects, quizzes, arts and crafts ideas, foraging and recipe suggestions and even an opportunity to engage with mindfulness are all part of the offer.

 

We’re recreating what families enjoyed at our woodland sessions, a warm and mutually supportive community. We hope you’ll come and join us.

Nature connection pathways to wellbeing

Boost your wellbeing

Scientific research shows that just two hours a week connecting with nature benefits physical health and mental wellbeing.

Being a member of Outdoor Tribe online is not only a great way to get the whole family involved in nature connection activities but for parents to feel part of a supportive community. There’s even  an option for weekly virtual meet-ups which are as much, if not more so, for the parents to chat with us and with each other.

We’d love to welcome you to join our tribe online to benefit your wellbeing through being part of a warm and supportive community who share an interest in the natural world.

Fun for all the family

Go wild with us

When we were able to go the woods everyone loved joining in with activities designed to build confidence and encourage smiling!

Well, there’s no need for that to stop because we’re  sharing ‘how-to’ videos for nature connection activities you can get involved with at home or when you’re out and about.

This month we’re also exploring the secret life of bees, as part of our August theme ‘creatures great and small’.

August’s simple cake making video is also receiving a lot of interest, with several ‘results’ already shared by our subscribers.

As for Stan’s wormery project, well that’s proving to be an activity highlight of the month.

Come and join us and take advantage of our special August offer price.

 

We hope to meet you soon

Why Outdoor Tribe has gone online

Due to the Covid-19 situation it’s just not practical to run family sessions at the wood right now, but we’re committed to  recreating the wonderful sense of community we all enjoyed at our family sessions.

Joining our Tribe online will provide something for all the family to engage with, just as it was at our woodland sessions. Access to premium content on our website includes video tours of the woodland, quizzes, games, nature-inspired crafts, project and foraging ideas, recipes to use at home and there will even be opportunity for engaging with some mindfulness activities, for those who have an interest in this.

Stan, Robert and Susan are all Board members of Outdoor Tribe CIC and are giving their time for free to run this online initiative. The aim is to demonstrate how despite the Covid-19 restrictions we can still benefit wellbeing through promoting ‘community’, albeit in a different way than we were used to.

We have a special August offer of just £10/family, that’s only £2.50 a week for a resource that can keep families engaged in nature connection activities for hours!

We launched on August 1st and already we are esperiencing lovely feedback from parents in our online community. “Really enjoying the content, something for everybody”.

As part of our provision we’re also running weekly Zoom sessions, optional for those who would like to join in. These 30 minute sessions, designed as much for adults as for the children, provide a place for meeting up for a chat, just as we used to do around the woodland camp fire. We’ll just have to ‘virtually’ toast the marshmallows!

So why not give us a go and subscribe for a month at our special intro price of just £10.

We’re just so delighted to be getting back to what we loved to be involved with, supporting families through nature-inspired activities to benefit their wellbeing.
