Dorset Forest School School Holiday Sessions

School Holiday Playschemes

We run school holiday activities based on the Forest School ethos. Sessions aim to immerse children in nature and encourage them to explore and engage with their surroundings, with the use of play, tools and fire we can work with ages 4 to 12.

All our sessions run from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm. With a level 3 Qualified and experienced FS leader as well as a Level 2 or 3 Assistant on each session, we ensure all participants have an outstanding experience. Each session costs £20 per child

  • School Holidays – Coastal School

    Coastal School
    Dorset Forest School and Artsreach are teaming up to offer a range of brilliant coastal school sessions for children aged 6 – 12. If your kids love the great outdoors, are keen for some adventure and are interested in all things wild, then one of these new three hour sessions might be just the thing to ward off holiday boredom. The programme aims to encourage children to develop a thoughtful understanding of their role as guardians of our precious Jurassic Coast.
    Next session is at Hive Beach on 31st August 2017 and can be booked through Artsreach https://artsreach.co.uk/event/on-the-beach-dfs
