Our Eco-Explorers Summer Camp is back! 10-14 year olds can join us daily for outdoor adventures, learning about conservation and wildlife

Our Eco-Explorers Summer Camp will run for 1 week from Monday 29/07/24 to Friday 02/08/24. Young people aged 10-14 will learn how to identify, record and understand wildlife around them. Building skills throughout the week, they will take part in practical conservation activities and also plan and deliver an activity for the public.

Day 1 – Investigating plants. A closer look at the trees and other plants around the Common.

Day 2 – Navigating and wayfinding. Understanding how to navigate around open spaces and safely explore.

Day 3 – Investigating invertebrates. Compare the wildlife living in different habitats.

Day 4 – Conservation activities. Assist with practical habitat management activities.

Day 5 – Sharing skills and knowledge. Learn how to use art and creative skills to engage the community around us with nature.

Each day will run from 09.30 to 15.00, with opportunities for breaks and socialising. Young people aged 10-14 will work in groups and individually at times and develop their confidence and social and interpersonal skills.

All activities will be led by our Education and Outdoor Learning Officer and our team of skilled volunteers. Spaces are limited, with concessions available for anyone entitled to Free School Meals.

Morning snacks and drinks are included, bring your own lunch.
