Wilder Woods

Central Somerset Outdoor Learning Partnership

Woodland Play and After School Clubs

We run inclusive activities and playschemes for all ages in local woodlands after school, during holidays, weekends, half terms and Inset days. Sessions for children are child led with the emphasis on free play with access to various activities.

Sessions for 8-12 year olds

We provide a safe and stimulating environment where unaccompanied over 8’s can get ‘back to nature’ and enjoy time outside. Activities include nature watch groups, den building, ropes on slopes, camp craft, scavenger trails, tree and animal identification games, hide and seek, plaster casts of animal tracks, orienteering, digging out clay for camp fire pottery, whistle making, rope bridge building, conservation projects, map sticks and general woodland arts and crafts.



This is an after school club that runs at Drayton Woods. The club runs in term time 4.30-7pm, during the Summer term and the first half of the Autumn term.  Watch out for updates on the Drayton Woods facebook page. Children must be 8 years old to attend. The club offers an opportunity for children to unwind after the week at school, with opportunities for  free play in the woods as well structured activities  with our Forest School leaders and volunteers: games,crafts, campfire cooking and woodland tool use. We focus on developing a sense of belonging and welcome children of all abilities.  Please contact Hannah for more info 01458 252463 or hannah@madasafish.com
