Does your child want to be a Young Ranger?

The Young Rangers after-school club are looking for new recruits. Since last summer James and Lea from Woodland Classroom have been inspiring children to get into the woods at Denmark Farm and take part in a host of activities, games and learning in nature. The club has been a runaway success, and there’s good news for any parents wanting to get their children enrolled, as a few spaces have become available in the regular Tuesday group.

Sessions (which run from 4pm-6pm) are based around the Forest School model with the emphasis on learning through play. Local parent Gille Perkins, who’s been bringing three of her children along regularly told us; “I don’t think I could stop my guys turning up to Young Rangers even if I wanted to, they’d never forgive me.” The Young Rangers programme links well with Denmark Farm’s own mission to ‘connect people with nature’ by allowing children to spend time exploring, discovering and playing in a safe and supportive outdoor environment. Jake Willis, one of their regular Young Rangers said; “I love it here, it’s amazing!” That sounds like fair praise to us and we know that any child that likes being outdoors will really enjoy this club.

    We have had a great time this week climbing on the fallen Beech trees at the bottom of the site, using ropes to make rope swings and exploring and investigating the wide range of fungi in the site! Oh and don’t forget hunting for the Gruffalo with the little rangers. We didn’t quite find Gruffalo but we found some Highland cattle 🙂
