Outdoor Tribe

Woodland sessions for families with special needs children

“This was an awesome experience, no pressure, no stress and people on hand to help and guide you. All the kids had an amazing time and in such beautiful scenery. It was definitely a battery recharging session for me”.

A great opportunity for some quality family time connecting with nature in a truly special place surrounded by fields. The wood is completely fenced, providing a secure place that encourages parents to relax, which is as important as the children having fun. 
“Absolutely invaluable and great to be around other families who just ‘get it’.
We provide a range of activities, which vary according to the season and the weather on the day. We have a sensory play area, space for den building, equipment for mini-beast hunting, arts and crafts using natural materials, nature walks, story baskets and plenty of places where you can just enjoy some time connecting with the sights and sounds of nature. 
There’s even opportunity to experience some guided meditation with Susan, our mindfulness in the woods practitioner.
We have a camp fire on the go for everyone to enjoy, providing a chance to sit, relax and catch up with others enjoying a cup of coffee or some food that’s been cooked on the fire – yum!
