Forest School at Bodenham Arboretum gives children freedom to enjoy the natural world in way we would have done ourselves as children, within a safe and secure environment. In the form of bespoke sessions and regular events, individuals, families, youth organisations, and educational establishments can learn, play, explore, and get close to nature in a fun and interactive way. Our aim is to give children independence to make their own choices, to take risks, to be imaginative, to discover and to learn about their world
