About our Holiday Club 

Salcey Forest, NN7 2HX

We offer fun, active childcare for children aged 4-14 during the school holidays in the natural environment of Salcey Forest (Northants).

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

We are also excited to share that we have added a new holiday club at our outdoor centre in Emberton - for dates and more information, click here.

Family Feedback:

"The attention to detail of the activities and food offering is second to none. My children feel safe and included in everything, to a level we’ve never felt at any other club."

"Two of my children are autistic and Forest School is the one place where I’ve never felt judged by the staff or been worried about leaving them there. Gemma and Donna have made a huge effort to communicate with the children and get to know them and enable them to enjoy being at Forest School. Nothing is ever too much trouble and I’ve often felt like Forest School has really been there for us and supported us so so well."

"There is no where our boys would rather be and as parents we always know they will have so much fun, be looked after so well and come home tired and happy, a winning combination!"
