From child-led outdoor sessions, to bushcraft activities, to free play and relaxation time, give your children (and yourselves) a break this half-term at the Forest School in Cemetery Park. Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park is bringing back their wilderness club for children aged 6-13 during the half term.
The Forest School will be on the 15th, 16th, and 17th of February so, even if your child can only attend one of the days, you will be paying for the three-day experience.
Kenneth Greenway, manager at Cemetery Park, runs the Forest School. He is a qualified practitioner for working with children in the great outdoors.
This year will be slightly different from previous years. The Forest School will be over three days to keep the children in a ‘bubble’ and to control mixing with other groups. There will be a maximum of 15 children in a bubble. Each bubble will be provided with thei own equipment and resources to explore Cemetery Park.
As these are outdoor heavy sessions, children are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather. Trousers, closed-toed shoes, hats and waterproof clothing are a must for these retreats. The Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park has provided a more in-depth list of what the children should bring on their website.
The meeting point will be at the Soanes Centre in Cemetery Park.
