Fun in the Woods!

We run parties at our Wheatley site and the recommended duration is 2 hrs.


Site contribution: £10 per party (This goes towards the site management and will be passed on to Wheatley Primary School).

Basic setting: £35 per hour (this includes 1 forest school leader, fire & stick bread), up to 20 children. The forest school leader will be at the fire at all times as long as the fire is going.

Larger parties, basic setting: £45 per hour (this includes 1 forest school leader, 1 additional professional, fire & stick bread)

If you feel you need to book in another professional– talk to us, we might be able to provide more people: £15 per hour per additional head.

Please note: to secure your booking, please send us an email (info(at) with your full name & address, date of the party, number of children and any additional activities. We will then send you an invoice and kindly ask for a non-refundable £20 deposit that will go towards your invoice

In addition to the basic setting, you can “pick and mix” the following activities:

  • Weaving/plaiting (to make bracelets or decorate sticks)
  • Nature art with clay: £10
  • Veggie soup, chocolate fingers & jam to go with the stick-bread: £7
  • Den-building if the right sticks and materials are already available in the woods
  • Face painting, 1 hour: £30
  • Pancakes to be made at the start of the party, before the fire dies down for stick bread making: £15
  • Wand making: £7

We don’t supply food, drink, cakes or gazeebos, just the location, a bit of guidance, and materials for your selected activities.

There are no toilets on site and parking is limited – 🙂 we recommend wild wees and car sharing.

Heart of the Wildwood supports working parents, so it might be the case that our forest school leaders bring their children to the party/session.
