Northern Ireland’s first ever outdoor forest school has launched a week-long spook-tacular Halloween Camp at Barnett Demesne in Belfast.
The Holistic Kidz Forest School Halloween Camp, which takes place from Monday 26th – Friday 30th October, promises lots of fun for children aged 4 to 12 including tree climbing, tepee creations, scarecrow building, magic wand and mud pie potion making, spooky stories, hot chocolate around the campfire and the Hogwarts nature trail.
Colette McCartney, Founder of Holistic Kidz said: “We are delighted to launch our 2020 Halloween Forest Camp. With children now settled back into school, we’re pleased to be able to help families continue with a routine during the half-term – and add a lot of fun and fulfilment at the same time. Our camp is all outdoors in nature and we are fully compliant with the current government regulations so parents can rest assured in the knowledge that their child is having a good time in a safe and nourishing environment.
Children are stimulated by spending time outdoors and there are so many proven scientific benefits including increased energy levels, improved mood and focus and running around breathing in the fresh air always ensures a good night’s sleep. Our ethos is very much built around nature and giving our Holistic Kidz the opportunity to learn new skills, build their confidence and emotional well-being, boost their creativity and imagination and develop essential problem-solving skills.”
“Our coaches are highly skilled and fully qualified in early years education and various holistic services and we keep our group sizes small to ensure each child has the chance to really make the most of their special time with us in camp. Sensible clothing is recommended as we love nothing more than climbing trees and jumping in muddy puddles – all the things that children love to do best when in the great outdoors!” Colette added.
A Weekly Explorer to the Holistic Kidz Halloween Forest Camp is £110 per child and a Daily Explorer is £27 per child. There is a 10% discount for siblings. Places must be booked in advance.
