St Catherine’s Summer HAF Fully Funded
Project Bolton Wild Child
We hope to offer something wild, outdoors, and unique!
Each session is planned but can be tailored to support every individual need, whilst building confidence and a love for nature.
We take part in many varied activities and are flexible in our response to interests and other factors such as the weather.
We fully support the Forest School ethos which allows for individual discovery and exploration and child-led play, and in turn natural develop and improve physical development, overall health and well being improvement and the encouragement of healthy lifestyles.
We will be leading on a number of sessions but we also really value our local enterprises and what impact they can also make to the individuals.
