Nature Camps & Farm Visits

 

By exposing children and adults to the outdoors and natural world, We aim to address the issue of ‘Nature Deficit Disorder’, connect individuals to the outdoors,  create stories that inspire and facts that encourage minds to steer the course of preserving the natural world and choosing wisely.

All our Nature Field Learning takes place at Organic and Biodiversity friendly farms where our day and overnight programmes combine knowledge and engagement for schools and academic groups.

We use a Sensory Learning Approach, Engaging and Immersing minds through History, Geography, Science Facts and current Academics at class. We make the Experience Fun and filled with ‘Mitti Under Your Hands’ through activities which allow children to feel Positively Impacted by the Natural World.
