Club in the Wood - Wild in the City – being trialed in two city schools in Brighton. Club in the Wood is a 2 hour, fun and learning packed adventure club delivered in small, city woodlands close to the school. It’s objectives:
To give each child time to be in touch with nature and the seasons - close to their home. To slow down, observe and be quiet – as well as play, create and feel community.
* Not school or a conventional after school club. We aim to give children a choice to take part in offered activities or simply play – and also contribute to what we do at the Club.
* We offer a mixture of nature connection activities, games, natural crafts, story telling, green woodworking, fire making/lighting and outdoor cooking. We also offer quiet time and a chance to be.
The Club in the Wood Team is led by Kate Griffiths, and includes male and female nature guides. All are experienced in working with children in outdoor settings and are DBS checked. Our adult team is enhanced for 2015 by the recruitment of two junior Nature Guides – these are children who have been though some of our programames and show leadership potential and a willingness to mentor younger children in wild ways.
