About our Holiday Club 

Highland Close, Bletchley MK3 7PD

We offer fun, active childcare for children aged between 4 -13 years old during the school holidays from our outdoor learning centre in Bletchley, located on private land behind our Cold Harbour nursery. The holiday club is currently run by our very experienced forest school team. It is a great way for children of all ages to come together and have some fun in a safe, secure and almost entirely outdoor setting.

One of Acorn’s key priorities is outdoor play and learning, which is clearly evident at Cold Harbour, where the outdoor environment and play area are available to the children all day, every day.

The club runs in every holiday except Christmas and Bank Holidays, usually for 3-4 days a week (Mon-Thurs), and is delivered by our team of experienced forest school leaders. 

The site also hosts outdoor playschemes, bushcraft and forest school sessions, all year round.

Catering 

The children need to bring their own lunch but a hot snack (such as crumpets, vegetarian chilli with nachos, vegetable kebabs, s'mores, cheese founde, damper bread, muffins, pizza wraps, cheese toasties, soup) is provided. This is a lovely activity where children can gather around the campfire to cook their own snack in the company of the other children and our Forest School leaders.

Family Feedback

"I cannot speak highly enough of Acorn forest schools. I have two boys who can be both energetic and shy and often reluctant to get involved. Both of them absolutely love spending time with you- I can genuinely relax knowing they are having fun and learning new skills. The staff are always friendly, smiley and happy to see us. Forest schools in itself is great, but it is the staff who make this particularly special."
