Woodland Parties

Tired of princesses and the same old clowns?  Bring your child’s dreams to the woods for a morning or afternoon of crafts, adventures and creative fun.  Serve birthday guests lunch from the open fire and sit back and relax in the great outdoors whilst our experienced leaders take the children on a magical woodland journey.  You choose the elements that will appeal to your little one – we make it happen.  From obstacle courses to sit-down crafts and anything else you can imagine, we can create the party of your little one’s dreams.

 

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN YOUR PARTY

– A choice of woodland craft (including using tools) which each child can take home (this could be wooden jewellery, a slingshot, woven art, or something themed to the party)

– Building and lighting a fire

– A choice of group challenge (such as den building, scavenger hunt, furniture building, or again, any similar activity themed to the party)

– All snacks and food (this is usually popcorn and hot chocolate around the fire as a snack followed by sausages in rolls, crisps and juice followed by s’mores, but again, this can be altered to suit your theme or dietary wishes)

We do all of the set-up and clean up, and provide all of the necessary cups, etc. so you don’t really need to bring anything. (except birthday cake and candles!)

 

PARTY BAGS

It is up to you whether you’d like to make party bags for your guests.  However, if you’d like us to do this, an eco-party bag containing the bits to make a take-home woodland craft as well as a printed thank you note from the party child can be supplied for £3.50 each (minimum three week lead time).

 

STAFFING

There will be two members of our team there to organise all activities and keep the kids busy and happy!  All of Stonebury’s leaders are CRB/DBS cleared and hold appropriate forest and first aid qualifications for the event.

 

ACCOMPANYING ADULTS

You will need to bring 1 adult for every 10 children in attendance – there is no charge for food for those adults.  If you would like us to supply food to any additional accompanying adults, the cost would be £4 per adult – you’re welcome to bring drinks of your choice for them.

 

FEES

The cost of a 2-hour weekend party is £200 for 12 children.  Midweek parties are 2-hours and cost £170 for 12 children.  If you’d like to invite more children it’s £10 per child or £7 per sibling – the maximum number of children is usually 30 (including siblings).  A non-refundable deposit of £80 is payable on booking to reserve a date with the remainder of the fee to be paid on the day of the party.  

 

WEATHER

Forest School goes ahead in all weathers (except extreme winds & lightening storms) and we would consult with the family before any decision would be taken to cancel on account of the weather.  

 

INSURANCE

Stonebury Learning hold full public liability insurance for all children participating in forest school activities.  Copies of documentation can be supplied should that be required.
