summer forest school tower hamlets cemetery park

Summer Forest School returns for the summer holidays 2018 at Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park.

Forest School is made up of a very wide range of experiences and adventures, including bush craft skills, whittling, fire lighting and cooking on fires, through to bug hunts and bird watching. Children can also take part in tailored activities designed to help them connect to their environment through arts and crafts, games and science based investigation activities.

The natural environment of THCP is at the very heart of all the workshops and children will discover the wonderful habitats found through a choice of inspiring hands-on activities and games.

Forest Schools are always run by a qualified practitioner (level 3 or above) who is experienced in working with children in an outdoor environment. Kenneth Greenway (Cemetery Park Manager) leads Forest School at THCP, with support from team members and other qualified forest school practitioners. All staff are DBS checked.
