Children's holiday activities

The Ecology Centre runs a scheme of environmental themed activities for five to ten year olds in the summer, Easter and half-term holidays. These activities utilise the centre and our wooded wildlife area. Our fun packed programme includes outdoor activities like shelter building and orienteering and animal themed craft sessions. Please note:

  • 10am to 12 noon and 2pm to 4pm
  • under eights must be accompanied by an adult
  • please book and pay in advance
  • activities include pond-dipping, minibeast hunting and shelter building  

We are currently running holiday activity sessions for children aged 5-10, with some longer sessions for children aged 8-12. We still have spaces on:

Guess Who? (22 August; 8-12yr. olds), Museum in a Box (26 August) and Bird of the Day (27 August; 8-12yr. olds).

You can also drop-in to our Ecology Consevation Day in the Wildlife Area on Thurday, 28th August anytime between 11am and 3pm.
