holiday camps

holiday camps

We run a range of holiday camps suitable for children aged 3 - 8 years old.  The format involves the children cooking a snack around the fire, and then they'll get the chance to enjoy a range of woodland activities.  From den building and making longbows, to nature walks and medal sawing we always have a fantastic time.  No holiday camps are scheduled at the moment.  Watch this space for news of upcoming events.

CAMP ESSENTIALS

We will be outdoors all day, every day, come rain or shine! To ensure campers are comfortable and prepared, please bring the following items to camp, labelled with your child's name and leave valuables at home:

  • Waterproof jacket and trousers 

  • Wellies or sturdy footwear

  • Packed lunch

  • Complete change of clothes in a small backpack

  • Reusable water bottle, full of water

For thorough details on what to wear for camp see our recommended kit list here.  We aim to bring you happy, tired children at the end of each day who have had a fantastic time in the forest. In order to ensure we keep your children happy please ensure children are dressed appropriately or with waterproof clothing during rainy days. There's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing... dress them well and they will have a great time!

Lunch

We ask children to bring a packed lunch in with them.  We provide a hot snack that the children will prepare and cook on the fire themselves. 

Saying Goodbye

We understand that this is a camp for young children and leaving Mummy and Daddy can be a difficult experience (sometimes more so for Mums and Dads, then the little ones!). Due to the nature of the camp, we can’t allow parents to accompany their children as we find it affects the dynamic of the camp and it can make it harder for those children whose parents are unable to stay.  In the event of high winds or lightning; we will contact parents to collect their children or in the event that children cannot be collected, we will evacuate the site and will transport children back to a safe area.

BOOKINGS AND CANCELLATIONS

If you need to cancel your child’s place, then please let us know right away. If we can resell the booking then you will receive a refund minus £5 admin fee. Cancellations made on the day or less than 2 weeks before camp starts are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged.

Drop off for Little and Mini Foxes is at the entrance to Stoke Park Estate near the Lockleaze Youth and Playspace BS7 9TB. We meet at the entrance to the meadow in Stoke Park Estate.  If driving, it's best to park outside the Lockleaze Youth and Playspace, BS7 9TB and then walk along the footpath that has two boulders at it's entrance.  About 50m along the footpath the entrance to the meadow is on your right.

 

Shortly after drop off we'll set off on the short walk through the stunning Stoke Park Estate, to set up our camp for the day.  This magical forest area is surrounded by bluebells, wild garlic, wildlife, meadows and trees aplenty.   Interested to visit the site?
