Outdoor Adventure Birthday Parties In Somerset.
Welcome to Hidden Woods.
We are an award-winning woodland activity centre, based in 80 acres of ancient woodland just a stone’s throw from Bath, Frome and surrounding area. We offer an exciting range of Forest School, bushcraft and other outdoor activities to children and adults of all ages. Complete with mighty oaks and babbling brooks, our beautiful purpose-built camp is the perfect place to connect with nature in a fun, adventurous and (we’d like to think) quite magical way.
What are the Benefits of Outdoor Learning?
Outdoor learning is being increasingly recognised as playing an integral role in holistic child development. Benefits include improved:
- physical and motors skills
- language and communication skills
- social skills, including team work
- knowledge and understanding of the environment
- self-esteem and self-confidence
- motivation and concentration
At Hidden Woods, some of the hard skills that children gain are an improved knowledge of the natural world, an understanding of appropriate use of tools and risk management skills, bushcraft and survival knowledge, environmental arts and crafts. We also very much focus on soft skills such as co-operation, sharing, empathy and the development of emotional language.
Hidden Woods is located in a beautiful 80 acre broadleaf woodland called Farleigh Wood, accessed directly off the A36 near Farleigh Hungerford (BA2 7NH).
Our beautiful woodland base really is without comparison. We have sensitively developed four fantastic camps around the woods, all of which boast a great variety of ‘wow’ features, like sheltered fire pits, rope swings, mud kitchens and stream play areas. Having a choice of camps at our disposal has several key benefits, such as ensuring that we do not impact on any one area too heavily and being able to choose the camp best suited to the group, conditions and activities on any given day.
