Come to the woods this Yuletide!

Winter Solstice Event 2019!

Booking now!

Saturday 14th December 2019  12pm - 5pm

We're excited to announce that we'll be holding our annual festive woodland Family Fun day at Pinewood Scout Centre this year!

Suitable for all children (and their parents) aged 2 - 16

Join us for a woodland celebration of the shortest day, to welcome back the light with lanterns, singing and fun!

We have some fun things happening this Christmas Holiday! Check out our various events and dates below and then just email us at to book.

Create festive woodland crafts such as simple wreaths, jam jar lanterns and wooden tree decorations, take part in some crazy games, a woodland obstacle course, dancing, face painting, and our lantern trail, and the chance to meet the Spirit of Christmas, deep in the wood, who will listen to your secret Solstice wishes by the fire.  The Spirit may even offer you a special gift if you've been good (of course you have!) and will be weaving a wonderful story or two!

There is a cosy indoor space in the Scout Hut, with a cafe selling homemade cakes, crafts and other goodies, with a space for sensory play and simple crafts for under 2's.

Cost per child

Practice your whittling and fire lighting skills in the Bushcraft zone. If you already have and can safely use a small carving knife, bring it (in your parent's pocket not yours!) or if you'd like to learn you can use ours under our guidance at various times throughout the day. (Ages 6+ as a guideline for this area)


Bring a picnic and if you want to, something simple to cook over the fire (sausages on sticks or a tin of hot dogs to nestle in the embers) There will be camp fire hot soup available to buy.


Come dressed up warmly and festively! (Grown ups too!)

£25 (unwaged)

£30 (waged)

£35 (generosity)

Cost per additional adult (first 2 free!)

Kids Wild Adventure Club

Monday 23rd December 2019

Thursday 2 January 2020 10.30 - 3.30
Frylands Wood Scout Centre

Our popular kids club offers a longer time for them to really get involved in nature and all the fun activities we can possibly squeeze into 5 hours!

No parents are needed, so on 23rd its a golden opportunity for you to do some last minute Christmas Shopping (or smugly put your feet up if you're more organised than we are!), and on 2 January you can release the Beasts into the wild to burn off some of that seasonal energy!

Booking in advance is essential as we need a signed and completed consent form for every child taking part as we will have duty of care for your precious ones while they are with us.

Cost per child

£19.50 (unwaged)

£29.50 (waged)

£39.50 (generosity)

Book in advance only.
