Come to the woods this Yuletide!

Winter Solstice Event 2020!

Booking now!

Saturday 12th December 2020 10am - 5pm

We're excited to announce that we'll be holding our annual festive woodland Family Fun day at Frylands Wood 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, and to celebrate hope and kindness for 2021 together!

There will be staggered start times for family bubbles of up to 6 people (including children) starting from 10am, and you will be following a planned route around 5 lovely, festive activities.  There will be space for you to stay on afterwards to play and enjoy the woodland.


You will create wonderfully festive woodland crafts such as jam jar lanterns and wooden tree decorations, take part in some crazy festive challenges, and follow our lantern trail for your 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!

Everything will be outdoors but under shelter, warmed by crackling camp fires and festive decorations.  You can warm up with a hot drink at our Yuletide Cafe, and you can pre-book and pay for your refreshments before you arrive,


There will be time at the end of your tour of the activities to stay and play, so why not bring a picnic?

If the woodlands starts to feel 'too busy' at any point then we will be asking folk to head home in the order they arrived, to make sure that everyone gets to feel safe outside together.


Make sure you come dressed up warmly and festively!   Bring a mug if you have ordered hot drinks!

Kids Wild Adventure Club

21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30 December 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!


As we did over Summer holidays and October half term, we are keeping the Tribes small (8 children) as this feels safest right now. 

No parents are needed, so it's a golden opportunity for you to do some last minute festive preparation (or smugly put your feet up if you're more organised than we are!), or after it's all over, 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.

Our Covid policy is below and you will be asked to confirm you have read it before your chiddlers join us!

Cost per child

£29.50 (unwaged)*

£39,50 (waged)
