Games and Den Building 30th May




Session Outline

Come and join us for fun games in the woodland at High Elms. Participants will learn to tie knots, create dens and learn new games. Games are based on ‘marco polo’ with an ecology twist, and a big kids version of hide and seek – with extra challenges!

Den building takes place in family/friendship groups while games are played to include everyone.

We recommend children between the ages of 7 to 13 take part.  Younger siblings are welcome to attend but they need to be closely monitored and helped with den building. Adults must accompany children on this session.
