Family Forest School at Danbury Country Park

Don’t let the children have all the fun, connecting with nature is beneficial for everyone. Come and join us at our Family Forest School sessions.

Hidden away at Danbury Country Park, our Family Forest School sessions offer you and your family the opportunity to reconnect with nature and each other. Create lasting memories around the campfire, explore the native flora and fauna, swing in a hammock, challenge yourself to the rope ladder or just chill by the stream.

These sessions run on the second Saturday of each month and are suitable for toddlers through to grandparents. Join our experienced L3 Forest School leader for some unique family time.

Spaces are limited and booking is essential - book early to avoid disappointment.

£8 for the first child, £5 for siblings. Adults and under 18 months free if accompanied by a paying child.

To make a booking with a sibling discount, please email forestschool@essex.gov.uk before placing an order.
