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, opportunities for observing the wildlife of the wood and plenty places where you can just enjoy some quality time quietly connecting with the sights and sounds of nature. 
We have a camp fire on the go for everyone to enjoy. We’re working with 2 families at a time during the Pandemic – here’s some of our latest feedback (29th Nov)
We spent a wonderful few hours in the woodland today, the children (and us adults) loved the freedom, the space and activities – even with a child on the shielding list we felt very confident being out there – so much thought and care put into the session to keep everyone safe.”
