Established in 2015, Broadleaf Forest Adventures CIC aims to broaden a student’s horizons, engender a love of nature and the outdoors and provide deep experiential learning opportunities which are based on their own personal intrinsic motivations. We are seeking to raise funds to provide a Wooden Structure - Woodland Retreat within our Forest School Site, enabling ALL student's to feel Safe, Warm and Secure; as our current abode a Canvas Bell-Tent, is somewhat LESS than Waterproof!!! Our endeavor is to source a site- sensitive 'Rustic Wooden Cabin', that will preserve the Woodlands natural appearance and topography. The Structure would provide protection from the elements, meaning that ALL programmes/session could be delivered All Year Round.

What we'll deliver:

  • To Construct a Wooden Structure to hold Forest School Provision
  • To furnish the Woodland Structure

Why it's a great idea:

The Forest School Pedagogy is gaining momentum and many Local Education Authorities are now embracing the concept which endorses the ‘Every Child Matters’ outcomes, in particular Enjoying and Achieving, Staying Safe and Being Healthy. Forest School is an approach that can allow practitioners to shape teaching methods to an individual’s learning style; bring learning to life for students who struggle with the constraints and conformity of the traditional classroom environment. Our activities will depend on the ability and experience of participants. Examples of activities include: Woodland management and nature exploration Building dens and other structures Fires and cooking Games and invitations for imaginative play Natural crafts Using tools, such as knives and saws Scavenger hunts and adventure.

Steps to get it done:

Today, children are completely at ease cosseted in their digital cocoons, escaping into a virtual landscape – rather than adventure into the reality that lies beyond their own backyard. Louv (2005), coined the phase “nature-deficit disorder” to describe the negative consequences to individual health and to society as a whole as children have less physical contact with the natural world. Gill (2007), supports Louvs concerns and refers to children as being “bred in captivity”. Childhood Memories are fundamental building blocks for Adult lives, lets invest in the next Generation!
