We're excited to announce that we'll be holding 2 sparkling, festive woodland Family Fun afternoons this year! 

 

We're coming back to our local woods to offer you a beautiful afternoon under the trees with your family in both the South and the North of the borough, so wherever you live in Croydon there will be something for you.

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

Join us for a woodland celebration to welcome the coming of Yule, and to celebrate hope and kindness for 2022 together!  

 

Each family will create wonderfully festive woodland decorations from natural materials and you will then choose a tree near where we are playing to decorate.  You can also bring your own decorations from home, but we would ask that they are taken away at the end of the session, and we would encourage you to think about how you might make them biodegradable so that that they might be left for others to enjoy but not damage the natural environment.  Please do bring a string of battery operated fairy lights or lanterns as well - the whole effect as dusk falls should be wonderful!


Everything will be outdoors but under shelter, warmed by a crackling camp fire and we will be providing hot soup and our traditional hot spiced apple juice.   There will also be hot chocolate, tea and coffee available.

We are also asking folk to bring some treats to share at the feast, either sweet or savoury.  This could be as simple as a tin of chocolates, or a bag of twiglets! As we visit each tree to admire it, it would be lovely if we could share something delicious with the other families, and then we can feast together around the camp fire, with some music and song to complete the afternoon.

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!
