Course description

How would you like to promote a team working approach into your family? Our Forest Families course will help you and your family to understand the real benefits of working together. You will develop some forest skills, spending some quality time in the great outdoors around beautiful Wentworth Castle grounds.

On this short course, you and your family will learn to build a shelter, work safely with tools, identify some local volunteering opportunities, and also produce a digital book of photos and thoughts to help you remember this wonderful experience.

What can this course lead to?

Other outdoor learning opportunities such as Forest Confidence and Forest Skills, or you may like to try an indoor classroom and enrol on some of our English, maths or digital courses.
